If you haven't played Articulate before, it's like charades, only you're able to speak. Each team has a nominated 'describer', who takes it in turns to describe a number of items from the supplied cards - these fall into categories such as 'people', 'world' etc. The more items you can describe before the time runs down, the more spaces you move around the board.
The younger children in the family really like to be involved as 'guessers', and actually get along better than some of the older family members (just try describing Henry Hugglemonster to an eighty-year old!).
For small families, or those with younger children, it is worth noting that you need a minimum of four players, so we only get this out at family gatherings.
I like this game. It's a fun game to play. Lots of laughing and a fair bit of friendly shouting and arguing. Funny playing with kids who use THE most bizarre descriptions for the easiest objects!
Pros: Easy to learn and fast paced game
Cons: Some categories (eg. working life) can be difficult for younger players
We have been playing the original Articulate for a couple of years now and it never gets old - it does always become incredibly silly though. When we saw the Articulate Phrases version it was a no brainer to get it. However, because we have a rather large board game collection we bought it with the intention of playing over Christmas and it stayed nicely wrapped until last weekend (only 4 months later than we intended!)
Although we had a lot of fun playing somehow it wasn't as joyful an experience as the original. I'm not sure why, maybe it was a mistake to it so late in the day when we were getting tired and suffering from the effects of Hanger.
We play just with three people (myself, my husband and our adult son) so the rules always need tweaking for games like this that are more geared towards team play. It is easy to adjust though and we just used our tried and tested method for this style of game - the questioner rotates like the players do and then it is best of two so if someone is useless at describing both of the other players get to suffer. I didn't describe that very well I know but it works for us.
It is a lot of fun and you certainly need to think, just not quite as fun as the original game.
Where Pictionary uses drawing to describe and Charades uses actions to describe, this uses words to describe. The rules are simple and gameplay flows well. Apart from the odd answer, it was mostly within their capability and we had a good few games one after the other that were well balanced as to who might win.
There are enough permutations that it should have very good replay value for a time to come.
We weren't sure whether to go for the adult or children version - this was the right choice and even for an adult, it was fun to play.
I would say that this is mainly for families that want to play with young teenagers that struggle at the original game.
Otherwise, it hold true to the normal style and offers good family fun.
This game is one of a kind and really fun to play all the time.
Play over the Christmas period alas it was a big disappointment. We didn’t find it flowing or interesting just quite hard to get. It’s probably better for older people rather than with a younger family.
