Articulate for Kids Review and Competition

I have always enjoyed playing the adults version of Articulate, I took it to university and would play it in the student bar with my friends.  My complete lack of knowledge of places and people had my friends in fits of giggles.  So I was happy to be able to introduce my boys to the kid’s version of Articulate given my fond memories back then.


It is easy enough to set up and the rules quite self-explanatory, you move around the board so many segments at a time depending on how many words you can correctly guess before the egg timer runs out.  At best I think we managed four at worst we would get none right!  As the timer goes down you feel the bubbling excitement will you be able to describe the word in time!  You have to make sure you do not say a word that includes your chosen word in it or a word that rhymes with your word but I think that’s reasonable otherwise it would be too easy!


Playing the game is a great way to build on the general knowledge of your children; they will learn more about people and places from a younger age.  My eldest is quite strong on animals as a subject so it’s fabulous seeing as he develops in other areas too.  As its aimed at children there are lots of cartoon characters within the people category alongside historical figures, my dad bless him was a bit clueless when it came to those cartoon ones but he still had fun playing the game with us.  He might be more in the know now about cartoons then he ever was before...

It is aimed at children 8+ but my 7 year old was in his element playing it, the 5 year old started out but after a few guesses wondered off to do something else, which is pretty much what he does with most games at the moment.  So I think a mature 6 or 7-year old would really enjoy the concept of the game.

You can find out more about the game and stockists from the website.

I have kindly been offered a copy of Articulate for Kids AND a grown up version of the game (12+) to giveaway too.  If you would like to enter then please complete the rafflecopter below by the 21st of September.
