Ideal Telestrations Review

This is my new favourite board game.

It was tricky playing it with our immediate
little family, as it’s for 8+ children. 
We were trying to play it with a four year old who can only read a few
words and the six year old who reads well but is not the best at spelling
words! So I cannot wait to play this
again over the Christmas holiday with my parents and brother too to really do
it justice (maybe with some wine for good measure!).

It
is just so much fun, even with our boys we had a giggle. It’s like a sketching Chinese whispers. You roll the dice and then write your secret
word on the sketchpad, you then draw that word before you pass it to the player
next to you.

They then write what they
think it is, before passing it to the next player to draw that word and so
on. It is very entertaining because
somehow along the line of players the original secret word changes
completely! We had hammock, change to
sausage change to worm! Then we had Snoopy change to a rat change to a rocket with legs on another sketchpad!

You
do not have long to draw your picture as the sand timer soon tells you to
stop. This means its still quite fast
paced, you have to draw as best as you can in the time you have and quickly
pass on the sketchpad to the next player. 
Handily it comes complete with the dry-wipe marker pens, erasable
sketchpads and clean up cloths, so it’s a game you can keep returning to again
and again without needing extra supplies!

I
think if your willing to give your children a little helping hand you can still
have lots of amusement even if they are not quite 8+ yet. You can find more about this game on the John
Adam’s website and I would highly recommend it for Christmas. With an RRP of £24.99 it offers lots of
entertainment for the whole family at a decent price.

One thought on “Ideal Telestrations Review

  1. That looks a lot of fun and a good game to play, I don't think I'll be buying it though as I think £24.99 is a lot of money. John Adams have a lot of good products but they do advertise a lot on Sky and I think this cost is passed direct to the consumer. My daughter asked for one of their games which she had seen on the television adverts and when I checked it was £50!! Managed to buy a just as good home brand version in Maplins for £15 though.
    Not knocking them as the games and ideas are good but I do find them expensive when trying to raise a family on a budget.
