Pictopia only arrived today sent over from our friends in Esdevium Games but eldest, hubbie and myself were eager to give it a try straight away. We had heard good things about the game and were keen to see if it would live up to our high expectations.
It proved to be a charming game that tests your knowledge in Disney trivia. It is not too complicated to get the hang of and the instructions were very clear. It’s pitched at the right level to be challenging but not too difficult if you love all things Disney, although some of the date questions we struggled with! The person whose turn it is becomes the host, it’s good that it’s structured in this way, as everyone can get involved in playing the game and not just being stuck in the role of host.
Hubbie surprised us all when he managed to get his final question right to win the game based on pictures of swirling princesses you could barely recognise!!! I did not know he was so well acquainted with the Disney princesses…
There are 1000 questions in total so plenty to keep the game fascinating, if you land on the Mickey face picture then the question revolves around YOU and what you think about the pictures or what you imagine the other players might do. It’s quite entertaining in that respect, hubbie had to pick out which cat I would most like, but everyone knew not to pick the girly ones with the pink ribbons (so not me!) when they made their guesses. It’s good to see how well your opponent knows you.
The wagering element is quite interesting, if you’re feeling confident then its best to use your highest coin so you can move on more spaces if you answer correctly. Although you do base your wager on a glance of the image alone, so when you actually come to hear the question associated with it you sometimes realise that you completely misjudged what you thought might have been asked! Suddenly you wish you had placed a low valued coin instead…
Pictopia has an RRP of £19.99 and is available to buy from Amazon; it really is a lovely addition to family game time. If you would like to win a copy of the game please fill out the form below by the 15th of February.
