IDEAL Classic Catch Phrase Review

This game arrived in suitable timing for an afternoon
session with the boys grandparents.

It’s a good mental workout trying to fathom what on earth the card is
trying to say! My mum and I remember
fondly watching the show together when I was a child, so it was great

It is aimed at children 8+ but eldest surprised us by being a very
capable player, he actually guessed the card correctly a number of times with
remarkable speed!

would recommend this game as you have the excitement of guessing each card but
you also do the big board true to the ITV show whereby you reveal the main

with as many lights as possible still on the electronic timer. If you think for too long your prize fund
dwindles considerably!

need to work on my “say what you see” skills as often my mum and I would over
complicate it. My dad was funny he
struggles with most board games, but its hilarious watching him play as he always
has an interesting take on things. I
think as family time together goes you cannot go wrong with this game from
