Get Ready To Play With Tomy’s Ultimate Gaming Selection!


Good Morning Lovelies, 

In our house and on this blog, you all know that my family loves a board game! We try to play them as much as we can, especially when it comes to gathering together at Christmas. There so, when Tomy kindly offered me the chance to test out some of their new and much-loved classics, I had to say yes! 

In a big brown box, I later found myself faced with some amazing gaming delights. Three of the best around at the moment. Upon opening it, I was greeted to the delights of the legendary Articulate, before uncovering the newest one, The Game of Saying ‘Huh?!’. As well as a revamped version of the brilliant Screwball Scramble called, Screwball Scramble Level Up

Deciding to put the oldest to the test first, we gathered round our dining room table to play Articulate. Known as the fast talking game, the aim is to describe what is on the card to your team members, getting as many right as you can in 30 seconds. However, you cannot say any of the words on the card. 

I absolute adore this game. When me and my friends used to have dinner parties or gatherings in sixth form, I can remember us all playing this. We would spend hours enjoying it. Something I recreated with my family. Honestly, I forgot how good Articulate was as a game. I now want to get everyone round again for another games night to play this. It is a game that brings hours of fun for all ages, which makes it fantastic when you have all the family over at Christmas. 

The next game we tried was the revamped Screwball Scramble. Much like the classic game, this one had been remade to literally level up. Now in a vertical position, players have to get their marble to the top, using only three controls to do so. However, if you fail to get to the top, you have to start all over again, until you get there. Something I really loved about this game was that it could be played alone or with others. The challenge was on for myself because of this and once I started to play it, I couldn’t stop. The same goes for my mum, who I’m not scared to admit as worse than me with how competitive she was. Even when trying to beat her previous own high score. 

Finally, we settled down to play, The Game of Saying ‘Huh?!’. In the game’s box, you are faced with a set of task cards, each having a set of letters on them, as well as a phrase at the top. Each player is then given a letter and must say the quote in the way the letter says. For example, the player may be asked to say it like a cowboy. All motions and actions are banned, with players losing points if they use them. Team members must then guess who had each letter, when the time is up, to be in with a chance of winning. The player who has the most points wins in the end. 

The game is best played when lots of people are playing I found, as there is a lot of wit and silliness to be had. It’s a bit like charades but with your voice doing all the actions instead. At first, the little ones in our family didn’t quite understand, but once they saw us adults being silly they couldn’t wait to give it a go. There was a lot of laughter over this I have to admit. However, I would still say that this is best played by older children and adults to work well. 

Tomy have produced legendary games for years! Whether it be a new discovery or a classic, I am certain that you will love their selection. There is literally something for everyone to enjoy. I can’t thank them enough for helping us to play just what we will be playing with guests over the next month. It is going to be hilarious for us all. To find out about these and other games Tomy has created, head to their website, which has tons of fun to be found. 

Right who fancies a game then?
