To play the game, you roll the dice to find out how you are going to reveal the idiom to your team. Depending what you roll, you could be drawing it, acting it out, shouting it or guessing it one letter at a time. The other die determines how many point you get if your team is able to guess the phase correctly. Although you could time the game using the timer, we opted not to do that with DD. It's a little too hard for her to work under such time constrain. Instead, we allow her to take as much time as she needs.
It is a lot of fun seeing her acting out or drawing out the phases. It's interesting to see how a 6 year old try to convey words through images and actions. But, more importantly, my favorite part is that it is also very educational. As we went through each idiom. We would explain the meaning of each one and sometimes we would never look it up online to figure out where it came from or if it has changed meaning over time.
I think it is fantastic to have a game that both kids and adults could enjoy. If you have game nights at your home, or if you are traveling this holiday season, I recommend picking it up. It's small enough to keep in your luggage. Instead of spending hours playing games on your iphone or ipad, why not take a break and spend some quality time playing with your kids. They will have fun and learn new things at the same time!
