LOGO What Am I? is a fun game and the first in the best-selling LOGO series of picture board games to be made for children. It combines the branded picture cards of the original LOGO game with new and exciting family-friendly challenges. What makes it different from LOGO itself is that now there are three activities built into the game: so the participants get to use their guessing, drawing and describing skills in a fast and furious race to the finish!
Included with the game are a colourful playing board and playing pieces, 60-second timer and hundreds of question cards featuring really well known companies and brands. Game play is simple. Each card has three different categories – Draw It, Describe It and Guess It – and the activity to be carried out relates to the icon upon which the player’s piece is resting.
Draw It! The ‘Draw It’ rounds give the player two options – for example, Hunter Wellington Boots and iPod, or Raleigh Bicycle and Hot Chocolate. The player sketches away at their chosen subject within the 60-second timer limit. Sometimes only a few strokes will do (a quick triangle may be quite enough to depict a Toblerone, for instance). Everyone can pitch in and call out as many guesses as they like, and whoever gets it right jointly wins the round, alongside the sketching player. Both of them then roll the dice individually, and move their piece forward. If no one guesses correctly, play simply passes on to the next player.
Describe It! In this round, echoing Drumond Park’s highly popular Articulate! and Articulate for Kids games, the cardholder has 60 seconds to describe the three products or brands shown on the card. These are all everyday items like a Baby’s Bottle, Sausages, a Comb, an Apple, Gloves, Coconut, Saucepan, Carrot, Watch and Fish Tank or ‘of the moment’ products or brands such as Coca Cola, Speedos, Ugg Boots, Twitter, Uncle Ben’s Rice, Smarties, Sky TV, Specsavers and Starbucks. The players must avoid saying which letter their word begins with, or any part of it – and they mustn’t give any rhyming clues, or perform or gesticulate while doing their describing.
Guess It! The ‘Guess It’ side of the card shows a picture of a well-known product or brand, and you keep it hidden from the other players, who have sixty seconds to identify it by asking questions. Examples range from Crocs, Anchor Butter, Waffle and Maltesers to Volkswagen and The Battersea Dogs & Cats Home! Again, players can make as many guesses as they like, and the card also includes a ‘Hint’ option which can be used to help the younger players. As previously, a correct guess means a joint winner with the cardholder, and both roll the dice and move their pieces on accordingly.
A race to the finish! The first player to throw the dice to move them onto or past the LOGO What Am I? centre zone wins the game – jointly with the player who guessed with them correctly on that turn.
Multi-generational fun… For children on their own the hugely entertaining LOGO What Am I? draws together many crucial aspects of communication and gamesmanship. It is also perfect for the youngsters to play with their parents and older siblings or at multi-generational gatherings. Absolutely everyone will be able to relate to the famous name products and brands – and join in the fun.
