I’m an only child so growing up board games were never my favorite pastime. It’s kind of hard to play them with one or two people-me and my mum. James however has 2 siblings so he grew up loving them and his love has forced me into many a game of Scrabble!
So when Nuffnang contacted me to test out the new incarnation of Pictionary I was well… apprehensive. I’ve never played Pictionary before so I don’t really have anything to compare it to but I took it along to our romantic getaway at the Langham to see if we could have some fun. That’s what happens on romantic hotel getaways right? People play board games? Uhuh. Well this is what happened…
Of course we totally read the instructions. James and I were Team Awesome and Shakespeare and the apple were Team Not As Awesome. The game was fast paced and full of smack talk. Some of the clues were very hard, we considered switching to the children’s deck of clues.
So the idea is that you roll the dice, move your piece and then pick a card. You have to draw the item on the card with the corresponding colour for your partner to guess. If you do it within the time limit you get to roll again. There are several versions of the game but this seemed the simplest to me XD
Unfortunately we are both very competitive with short tempers.
It’s all done in 60second time limits but considering we were the best, most awesome Pictionary players ever that didn’t bother us!
Who knows what James was trying to draw there! Try and guess in the comments if you want, I bet no one gets it mwahaha!
We would definitely never let a game effect our relationship…
Luckily, when you’re playing with fictional opponents you are pretty much in control of the outcome…
And we were very gracious winners.
For some reason everyone left after that… noooooooooo idea why.
So competition time!
