I can honestly say I’d never played Articulate before, which our friend laughed at as it’s 1 of their favourite family games to play and they usually end up laughing so much they can’t actually speak!

So Thursday night I took it with me to the cricket club and we started to play and I can understand what she meant, oh dear me we had so much fun. 

All of a sudden you seem to go completely blank, then boom your mouth can’t keep up with you trying to get clues out. Although I will admit there was the odd word that got us completely stumped. 

 

Articulate for Kids (rrp £19.99, age 6 to 12, for 4-20 players), is the hugely entertaining junior version of Drumond Park’s perennially popular and hilariously raucous Articulate! board game (rrp£32.99, age 12+, also for 4-20 players).

Articulate

 Articulate for Kids can be played by a group of children by themselves (or with grown-ups), or alongside Articulate! for hours of multi-generational family fun.  Many educationalists also choose to incorporate the game into entertaining learning strategies in the classroom to promote speaking skills – adapting game play according to small or larger numbers of children in play.

Compiled by an educational specialist, Articulate for Kids is the same fast moving, lively and thrilling fun as the adult version – providing youngsters with the perfect opportunity to practice their communication skills, while learning new words and expressing themselves fluently and confidently.

GAMEPLAY

Both games follow the same simple format… 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 different categories, as possible to their team members – the Guessers – within a 30-second time limit.

Each team moves its counters around the board, based on the number of words correctly identified – and the object of the game is to reach the FINISH segment before the opposing team. There are clear Description Rules included in the Instructions. For example, Describers mustn’t give hints such as ‘begins with’ and ‘sounds like’…

When playing the Articulate for Kids game, children will have lots of fun and also experience a sense of fulfilment – digging deep to describe people, words and phrases as diverse as Mo Farah and Prince William, Nemo and a Fairy, a Piglet, the Daleks, a jigsaw and a cuckoo. The game, which has been completely updated and refurbished for Christmas 2014, provides a superb platform to encourage vocabulary extension and distinct, clear and confident speech, as well as effective communication among children of all abilities – particularly those who are in need of a fun confidence boost.

If you’re one of the very few people out there who haven’t played Articulate! already, you really, really should!  Perfect for players aged 12 and upwards, it’s an absolute riot and a hilariously raucous team game. Speed is of the essence here, and the more words your team can guess from your descriptions before the timer runs out, the quicker you’ll cross the finishing line!
