A game that everyone seems to be talking about at the moments is Esdevium Games Disney Pictopia. It’s won 6 different awards this year from the likes of Mum’s Choice Awards and Toy Tests TV Award. So it was time to see what the game was all about!
Disney Pictopia is aimed at children aged 7 years and over, so we were all aware that this might be a bit challenging for a nearly 6 year old Monkey. But we said we’d accept the challenge and see how we got on. You need 2-6 players, but you can also play in teams, with game play normally lasting for around 25 minutes.
The game consists of a game board, 200 picture cards, 6 game pieces with the iconic Mickey Mouse ears, coloured wager cards numbered 1-5 and 6 Mickey shaped answer cards.
The game asks questions that cover all manner of Disney trivia featuring characters old and new, making Disney Pictopia a real family game.
How good is your Disney knowledge? Are you willing to put down a wager to test it against the other players? If you are feeling confident wage 5 in the hope you can move 5 spaces along the board, but 1 if you’re really not sure.
There are a number of questions that can be asked by the host of each game, depending on the icon shown on the playing space. Can you be the first to reach the Magic Kingdom?
Monkey struggled a little with this game as an individual player, so we’ve played in teams, ganging up against Daddy P! The concept of wagers is new to him, but I know it’s going to be a hit. As his confidence grows, along with his Disney knowledge, I can see Disney Pictopia becoming a firm family favourite, especially during the festive season when we can challenge family and friends to join in too.
