Hasbro Gaming Pictureka! Game
About this deal
The other players decide you - you could lose a card... or maybe you have to howl like a dog or perform an "I'm So Sorry" dance. The problem with the four games is that they aren’t that different when you really think about it. The only differences between 8-Away and Alphabetti is whether players have their own cards and if you match a mission or a letter. The non-speed games are a little different. Matchureka adds a matching/memory element to the game but uses the same basic gameplay from all of the other games. I didn’t particularly care for it since I don’t really like memory games. Finally Cow’s Creative Combo just has players find three cards from their hand that match a mission.
The other reason I didn’t enjoy the game as much as I would have thought is the game feels mostly like a family/children’s game. I like plenty of family games but the Pictureka! Card Game felt like a game that you should play with children since the game gets kind of dull if you only play it with adults. If you have younger children you should enjoy the game more than I did. Mix together the red and green cards from both games and shuffle one red pile and one green pile. Put them face down on the table. Two teams of three contestants (consisting of two kids & a parent) competed in this crazy game of hide & seek.
To begin the game each player is dealt eight cards facedown. Each player shuffles their cards and forms four piles in front of them with two cards in each pile (cards face up). The first mission card is flipped over and the game begins.
Cheating may be a bit extreme, but to keep a lighthearted tone include those who are also mistaken as well.If the current letter is A the player could point to the red card and say “ankle”. The player would then take the red card to indicate that they won one of the rounds. If you’re looking for a game to play with your kids that can help with their cognitive skills, then look no further than Pictureka.
This card requires the player to find all of the listed objects before the included timer runs out. Players who draw these cards perform the required action as soon as players draw that card. Pictureka Missions Rules I do give the game credit for creating four different games that you can play with the cards. This gives you some options on how you would like to play the game. In particular I liked that it included speed games and games that give you time to think without having to be the fastest player. This is good for younger children and people who don’t like speed games. I personally preferred the two speed games but there are a lot of people that hate speed games.Keeping score in Pictureka is a simple task, the winner of a game is the player who has the most cards at the end of the agreed-upon rounds. If a player shouts at ‘Pictureka’ and then fails to point out where the mission objective is, this would be a good example of a player ‘cheating’. Pictureka did not start out under the name “Pictureka”. In fact, it was launched by Lauwers Games under the name ‘Project X’. The game was invented by Belgian game inventor Arne Lauwers. It was a multilingual version intended for the European & US market.
