Colourbrain, Disney Edition from Big Potato Games : Review
I just love anything Disney, I have done since a small child but more so now being an adult as I am reliving all my enjoyment of my favourite films with my kids. We love watching the classics just as much as enjoying the newly remastered films which are being released at present. So when Big Potato Games wanted to test my knowledge of all things Disney with their new Colourbrain, Disney Edition game I knew I had to give it a try!
Contents Of The Box
- A Large Selection of question cards
- 44 Colour Cards – a set of 11 Colour Cards for each player or team.
- 4 – 8 Card Steal cards
- Score Pad
- Multicoloured pencil
Aim Of The Game
Show off your knowledge of all things Disney by answering (or guessing) correctly the questions on the card. Using your colour cards, you answer the question on the card by selecting colours your question is about, for example; From Winnie The Pooh, what colour is Pooh’s t-shirt?
On the question side of the play card it will tell you how many colour cards it wants you to pick before turning the question card over to reveal the correct answer.
From here the aim of the game is to not only answer the question correctly. But be the only player/team to get the question correct. Being the only one to answer correctly wins you points (1 point for each player/team to get it wrong). The answers are always provided for you, they are on the reverse of the card.
The first player/team to get to 10 points wins!
An Added Twist
There is one sneaky twist to this game, to help the player/teams which are not in the lead. This player/team can use their 8 Card Steal card to disarm the leading player/team of 8 Cards to help them gain an advantage.
This card can only be used once per player/team during the game and the colour cards will be returned after the next question card has been played.
Initially, Leah and I played this game alone, and it went really well (for me). This game is recommended for players aged 8+, Leah is aged 7 and although she understood the game rules wonderfully her only floor to the playing the game was her knowledge of the colours of characters. Although her favourite films, Aladdin, Finding Nemo and Toy Story were her strong points.
Since then we have played as a family with 2 teams, girls vs. boys which was great to play as a team rather than playing individually where we try to prevent having upset children.
We are certainly going to enjoy playing this game for a long time to come.
