SHOUT! (rrp £29.99), the latest super-exciting family game from Drumond Park, is sure to provide plenty of fun for teams of family and friends aged from around 12 to 99! Suitable for 4+ players.
There are 167 double-sided super-size cards in the box, each featuring a set of nine Challenges on both sides (themed images, words, figures etc.) – that’s almost 3,000 challenges in all!
The game’s centrepiece is the unique 60-second timer stand, which displays the giant Challenge Cards to the ‘Answerers’ - and enables the ‘Askers’ to see the answers to each challenge.
This game is bursting with quirky questions and cunning puzzles where you have to look, link and think – making connections between what you see on the Challenge card and what the answer might be.
On the ‘Body Parts’ card, for instance, a picture of Concorde translates to ‘nose’, a photograph of Martin Luther King on the ‘Abba Songs’ card identifies ‘I Have a Dream’ and on the ‘Egg Things’ card, the image of a stop watch will bring ‘an Egg Timer’ to mind.
Play is fast and furious. Everyone on the team shouts out as many answers as they can in a race against the timer, while the opposing team keeps track of their correct answers by placing pegs on the scoring board at the base of the stand. The winning team is the first to reach 99 points.
Having played the game with a group of family members I felt it was perfect for a family gathering or party, and with the festive season on the horizon, it’s perfect timing.
An enjoyable and entertaining game for all, although we did get a little frenzied and loud at times – but after all that is all part of the fun of the game!
Played in two teams ‘Shout’ was perfect for all abilities as there were questions to suit all ages, which was ideal as we did have a mixed aged group playing.
