Are you looking for a fun family game that family of all ages can play around the table after Christmas Dinner? Then do read on. Here is our review of the new game from Gamely Games – Soundiculous Kids.
*Ad – we were kindly sent Soundiculous Kids to review by Gamely Games – but all opinions and views are our own.
Soundiculous Kids – Our Review
Nothing says Christmas more to me than being able to spend some time with all the family playing games around the table after the Christmas dinner.
Many a Christmas Day evening in my years gone by have been spent playing the board games of the day. Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Cluedo and Dictionary have been fiercely competed with friends and family over the festive period. And I am very keen to maintain that tradition with my daughter and my niece as they grow up.
However, a lot of games are a little too old for my almost 5 year old. We do need to find age appropriate substitutes. So when Gamely asked if I would like to review the new younger children version of their already successful Soundiculous game, I was very pleased to accept.
How To Play Soundiculous Kids
The game is aimed at ages 3-7, and for any more than 2 players. Each player takes it in turns to take a card from the top of the 2 piles of cards, marked “easy” and “hard”. They then have to make the sound depicted by that card. Players are not allowed to gesticulate or say words, only make noises. All the other players then have to guess what the noise is.
Once a player has correctly identified the noise, they win that card. And the first player to collect 5 cards wins the game!
Because of its easy scoring system, it is thus a brilliant game that the whole family can play. It does say on the box ages 3-7, but the three of us really enjoyed being able to sit and play a game together around the dining room table.
Making the noises makes everyone laugh. As soon as a child can understand what each picture is then it becomes a proper crowd pleaser of a game. They don’t even need to be able to read, as the pictures are clear and easy for even small children to understand and have a go.
More Ways To Play
As well as the traditional way of playing the game, there are also other alternative game suggestions for how to use the cards, including having a charades version where you could try and act the card out. Or for each player to do a drawing of the card to see who could guess what the drawing is first.
My gorgeous OH, who is a teacher, also suggested making up a story sequence with your winning cards.
It really is such a hilarious game that everyone can get involved in. And due to its small size and portability, it also makes the perfect travel game.
I have no hesitation in recommending this game to everyone. I know that this will be a family favourite and cannot wait to play it with some of my other friends and family once we can all meet up again. Why not try it too? Buy it here on Amazon
