Drumond Park The Best of TV and Movies game review


Drumond Park sent us through another game from their Logo range of games for us to try out - you may remember we reviewed LOGO What Am I? last year -and it's been played non stop over Christmas.


The board is a simple linear track of different colours, relating to the different coloured questions on the cards. You can either play as individual players or teams, working your way around the board, answering the questions on the cards in turn or by "stealing" other players' cards if they don't get the answers right.


The backs of the cards offer you a clue - either a theme or a picture (often a series of cryptic images relating to one actor which are my favourites), unless you get a random "pot luck" question - and the questions are a nice mix of recent and vintage film and TV trivia. 


The box suggests that players aged 12+ can play, but we had younger players joining in alongside older team members (8 year old Juliette and even 4 year old Piere) and they were delighted to get some of the questions right, particularly about Disney and modern animated movies that the older players were totally clueless about !

The game comes with 400 cards, offering a total of 1600 questions, which sounds like a lot but once you've worked your way through them all, you'll know all the answers and have an unfair advantage ! There are bonus cards that you can use when playing in teams to spice things up - a 'mute button' card to prevent one player from answering, a 'fast forward' card and a 'change the channel' card to swap topics - but we haven't used these so far, as we've been playing with young children and wanted to keep it quite simple.

It's a great game that the whole family can get involved in and that takes very little setting up. It's nice to have a game that you can just enjoy without having to worry about strategy or scoring too.

If you like the sound of it, make sure you enter my giveaway to win the game.
