With the summer holidays fast approaching, it’s inevitable that your kids will argue and complain of boredom at some point during the long six-week break! I’ve therefore teamed up with family board game giants Drumond Park to give you the chance to win not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE copies of their fast talking description game Articulate for Kids. You can thank me later!
I’m a massive fan of board games and grew up playing them with my family. There’s something great about sitting down as a family and spending some quality time together over a dice, playing pieces and a board – plus getting one over your brother is always a nice added bonus!
At 10-months, Baby L is a bit too young for board games just yet, but I can’t wait to introduce her to them in the future. Until that point, the missus and I still enjoy cracking open a couple of bottles of cider on an evening whilst testing our knowledge against each other by playing the likes of The LOGO Board Game or His And Hers.
Anyway, that’s enough about me. Let’s get back to this awesome giveaway!
Articulate for Kids is based on the hugely popular Articulate! board game – this junior version comes with its own attractively designed board, has more than 300 cards with over 2,000 entries, is suitable for ages 6 to 12 and can have from 4 to 20 players. It can be played by a group of children with or without parent supervision and can even be combined with the adult version to provide hours of fun with friends and family. How great does that sound?
The game is not just fun though. Compiled by an educational specialist, Articulate for Kids provides children with the perfect chance to practice their communication skills, learn new words and express themselves fluently and confidently as they describe people, words and phrases as diverse as Mo Farah and Prince George, Nemo and a Fairy, a Piglet, the Daleks, a Jigsaw and a Cuckoo.
Played in teams, the idea is to describe as many cards as possible to your team mates in 30 seconds without giving “begins with” or “sounds like” clues. In each round, the teams divide their members into ‘Describers’ and ‘Guessers’. The timer is started, and the Describers take it in turns to describe their way through as many question card entries, from the six different categories, as possible within the time limit. Each team moves its counters around the board based on the number of words correctly identified.
Reach the FINISH segment before the opposing team and you’ve won!
