Crayola 3, 2, 1 Draw! Game – A Fun Family Board Game for Christmas
My family is crazy about board games. When we get together, we nearly always end up playing a game after enjoying a meal together. We love games that can include the whole family and there’s usually three generations at our get-togethers so there’s always people of varying ages — my sister’s kids (4 & 6 years old), my kids (6 months and nearly 3 years old), my sisters and their partners, my husband and I and my mum.
We need games that appeal to nearly the whole range of ages (the babies can’t always play!) and one of our new finds is the Crayola 3, 2, 1 Draw! game.
It’s a fun and simple game with a “doodletastic difference”. It’s suitable from around 6 years and onwards but depending on your children’s interests and skills, younger ones might enjoy it too.
To play the game, team up and just pick a thing — anything — to draw. Draw on the white board and let your team mates guess before the time runs out. There’s a sand timer that you can attach to the pen to keep an eye on the time.
To make the game more challenging, there are three inspiration dice that can be thrown to create new ideas and narrow the choice down. The Silly dice makes it more difficult by suggesting things like draw with your eyes closed or no pen lifting. One side gives you extra time though! The Theme dice gives you a category to choose from and the Letter dice gives you a starting letter to stick to when choosing what to draw.
When your team has guessed correctly or you’ve run out of time, just wipe the board and hand it over to the next team.
It’s a great game to play at home or on the go. The dice and the little wiper fit into a storage compartment on the side of the board and the sand timer and pen has a holder on the side too. It’s about the same size as an iPad Mini so doesn’t take up much room at all in a backpack or at home.
Most of all, it’s a fun game! We love drawing in my family too so it’s perfect for us. It’s great that the game can be enjoyed by a wide age group and that you can play different difficulty levels. To make it very hard, you can play with all three dice at the same time. It’s definitely a game that will keep making regular appearances at our family table.
