Chicken Charades Review

This University Games version of charades is a little bit quirkier than the usual kind!

Every time you act out a clue you have to incorporate the squeaky chicken into your efforts!!!  

The charade cards cover items, actions, body parts and so on, you can imagine you need to get quite creative with the chicken for it to work!  It is hilarious, uncomplicated amusement for a rainy day.

It is aimed at children 8+ I assume that is for the reading involved on the card, so if you have a confident reader they could happily join in I am sure.  Personally I think this game would be even funnier on a drunken night out with a gang of mates.  As it was we had a very sober game of Chicken Charades and to be fair it is still quite entertaining!  It is very fast paced; you only have 10 seconds to guess what on earth the chicken is attempting to describe. 

Can you guess the charade from the chicken here?

It was meant to be temper tantrum, seeing as my boys in the past have been face down on the floor, I thought it summed it up quite well.  Although everyone thought it was a dead chicken instead…

It’s novel having a chicken twist of an old favourite game.  The only problem we had was Summer thought it was a dog toy, so if you do have a canine companion watch they do not try and claim the chicken for themselves…

I would recommend this game as a bit of affordable fun over the half term, it has an RRP of £19.99 but you can shop around and find it considerably cheaper (for example its only £12.99 on Smyths).  More information regarding stockists is available from the University Games website.
