It is actually challenging! My husband and I play it with our 7 year old daughter and almost 6 year old son, and while our son is a little slower at drawing, we just have to give him a little more time at the end to draw out everything he remembers. We've all won rounds and lost rounds. It's amazing how much you can forget once the card gets turned over!
It levels out the playing field and you don't have to be a good artist at all which is great for my son who is just learning to draw more complex things and good for my husband who is a stick figure only kind of guy. You just have to be able to get the basic shape; like a round head, two nostrils, bunny ears, mouth with a tongue and a bow. As long as the general idea is there you get a point for it. The features are all different enough that you can tell what the person was trying to draw.
We've really enjoyed this game and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play something fun with the kids, or something fun for the kids to play on their own that won't get boring. It's also great to work your memory muscles...and us adults might need that more than our kids! :)
The game begins as each player is given 30 seconds to memorize the features of a cartoon character on a card. When time ends, the player turns the card over and uses the "Features Board" to assist him in recalling all the parts of the cartoon. He draws the cartoon with as much accuracy as possible. Points are awarded for number of correct features; a bonus point is given to the player who finishes first.
We played this for the first time over Thanksgiving break with a mixed group, ages 5-adult. One adult was always done first, so we quickly decided to forego giving a bonus point for finishing first. If we allowed players the time they needed, all players got full points every time. (It's slightly embarrassing to admit that the 5yo often remembered as well as the adults. I shouldn't be surprised considering the fact that my kids regularly beat me at Memory.) Since everyone was successful, it became less a competitive game and more of an opportunity to work on drawing and memorization. We experienced amusement, merriment, and occasional awe as we viewed all the drawings. When the rest of us quit, the 5yo kept drawing on his own, using the cards and the features board. I could see it inspiring some children to draw more often.
I think this is the perfect game for the right person/group. It's a great little tool for children to practice memorization and drawing skills. I like the visual/spatial qualities. I could see a group of slightly older children having an uproariously good time, comparing their cartoons to the originals. The game fills a unique niche in the market and could be a fun group activity for holiday play, games nights, or parties. It would also make a fun classroom game for early finishers...especially those who like to draw.
Your drawings come out different (of course) than what's pictured but it is not so "hysterically funny" as the box leads you to believe. Will now retire this into the game closet either for future use or future garage sale.

This was a fun game that can be played with children that are on lower reading levels, and the adults can have fun as well. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Ellen Miller
I bought this for my girls, when they opened it up, there where missing pieces. I contacted the company , they totally ignored me. I am so upset with this game and company. Read morePublished on December 31, 2013 by Barb W
This is a great game for a group since you can have 6 or 8 kids playing at once if you want. You don't actually have to be able to draw all that well, it is as much a memory game... Read morePublished on November 6, 2013 by gopms
