Drumond Park Mask ‘N’ Ask Review and Competition

My boys had fun playing this game from Drumond Park, they loved how versatile it was so many different masks in the box.  It is aimed for children 7+ which I would say is about right because this game does require some reading ability really so you can read the questions on the board.  Although when youngest wanted to play we just forgot the board and improvised using just the masks and taking it in turns to ask a question until someone guessed correctly.  So it is good that you can use the game when they are younger in that format before advancing to the board when they hit 6 or 7.



The board has two sides depending on if you are using the animal masks or the people masks.  We did find the masks slipping off a little so you do need to make sure you attach them on correctly.  The plastic glasses you stick them on to are a novelty in themselves and the boys liked putting them on and looking intellectual!

My two are little monkeys and are prone to looking in any reflective surface to try and see what they have on their mask.  So if you are playing this game and losing a lot, do check around to see if your children are close to a mirror or a window they can spot themselves in!  I think its handy having the board to work round as it does help children with suitable questions to ask.  In these kinds of games it can be tricky when they tend to base all their questions on whatever mask the other person is wearing!  That is what youngest tends to do anyway, so I am hoping the structure of moving around the board will stop him giving the game away for other people…



The masks cover a wide range of animals or people, so its a helpful way to learn more about each.  You can see a list of stockists at the Drumond Park website.  The game has an RRP of £16.99 but is available cheaper if you shop around.  I think it is one you would enjoy over the Christmas period.
