Wonder Forge Eye Found It! : Review

Recently we have been trying out a new Disney board game, from Wonder Forge, Eye Found It! A great game of working as a team to travel through 12 different realms of Disney, searching for 1,000 hidden objects hidden within the realms all across a giant 6ft board. Through this game you will travel through Radiator Springs, Never Land, Alice In Wonderland, Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood and much more.

Eye Found ItThe contents of the game (as pictured below) are;

  • 1 game board, separated into 3 pieces which easily link together like a jigsaw
  • 30 double sided search cards, red or blue.
  • 6 Characters with attachable bases
  • 12 Mickey Mouse ear markers
  • 1 spinner board
  • 1 sand timer
  • 1 set of instructions

Eye Found It 1Playing this game is really simple and so much fun.

  • To set up the game make sure the board is laid out and connected
  • Each player chooses a character, places them on start ready the youngest to go first.
  • Shuffle the search cards and keep them to hand with the spinner, time sander and Mickey Mouse markers.
  • Set the clock at the top of the game board to 1:00.

The object of the game is for ALL players to reach Cinderella’s castle before the clock strikes midnight.

Eye Found It 2The youngest player starts the game first by spinning the spinner. The spinner contains 3 different scenarios which would then possibly happen.

Eye Found It 3Land on;

  • Clock ticks 1 or 2 – Move the clock hand on Cinderella’s castle forward 1 or 2 hours. Then is the next players go.
  • Move (which are the coloured numbers) – Represent how many spaces you can move on the game board. Then its the next players go.
  • Search – These are the Mickey Mouse ears on the spinner. This is where the game becomes really exciting and all players join in! Read on for further instructions.

Depending which colour search you land on represents which colour search card to use. Then with a selection of Mickey Mouses ears to hand scour through the game board to search for the item shown on the game board, make sure you turn over the sand timer first and be quick searching! At the end of the designated searching time the markers are counted up and each player can move forward that certain amount of spaces, i.e. 4 markers on the board, all players move forward 4 spaces. One thing we particularly liked about the search feature is that the items you are searching for will not always look like the card, its really about being creative.

You will also notice that there are “search” ears on the game board itself. This works in exactly same way as above, the only difference is that its up to the player who landed on that search square which colour side of the card to use.

With the search sequence at the end, ensure that all the markers are removed from the playing board before proceeding onto the next player.

To win the game all players much reach Cinerella’s castle at the top of the board before the clock strikes midnight!

The game is really well built, with the board being so long but provided in 3 sections really does help with storing it away and protection. The graphics are wonderfully bright and the detailing is brilliant.

Aimed at children aged 4+ and 1-6 players can play, this really is a great game for all the family to play, Leah (aged 2) is too young for this as yet and really failed to grasp the concept of the game but with age she will learn how to play it. This game has been a great addition to Lewis’s board game collection and is currently played on a daily basis.

Available to buy from most high street toy stores or online with an RRP of £14.99.
