UK Alias Game from Tactic Reviews

Catia Awarded The UK Alias Game 5/5 

Nice box with good pictures of things related to the UK. In my opinion the concept of this game is great. It’s fun and at the same time educational for anyone that plays it. It is based on how much we know about the UK in various aspects like sports, culture, history and much more. Instructions are straightforward and the game is very easy to play. Good quality overall for all the contents. 10 is a good age but I think some children at a younger age can play, my 7 year old boy had a go playing with Emily and he enjoyed playing. Maybe 8 years old would be a good starting age for this game in my opinion. Emily found the game easy to set up, understand and play. We have played it in the evenings several times and also Emily played it few times with friends that came over. My child had fun and she was competitive about it. Good game to keep kids entertained. I would not say it helped improve her vocabulary as it is already extensive. Very educational would recommend to any parent to get it for their children. We played it as a family and we all enjoyed it. Good to keep kids busy over the summer holidays. The first two weeks we played it more often every 1-2 days and then maybe every 3-4 days. I agree. This is an ideal family game to be played at major gatherings. It’s fun. No fault to it, it is a good quality product indeed. It is good value for us but in my opinion because it is over £20 I think maybe not affordable for everyone. What I liked the most was that it is educational and fun at the same time plus easy to set up. I would buy this because kept kids entertained and interested at all times. I would also recommend because it is fun and educational. Overall this product is 5 stars; from as it is present to how easy it is to set up to how fun is to play with the bonus that it is educational. Great experience playing this game including Fun times with the family to remember and on top learning interesting facts about UK. Catia Rodrigues – Emily 10 Years

We as a family love playing games so we were very excited to receive this. Our first impressions were that we’d have to get our thinking caps on and we found that very exciting. The concept is so simple but so much fun. I used to play a game similar to this when I was in school! I love the fact that it requires concentration and brain power! The instructions were very clear and easy to understand. The contents were perfect. Very simple but everything you needed to play the game. I do agree it is targeted at right age group 10 years plus. My son did find this game easy to play, although he did not understand what some of the words were. My son loved this game. I definitely agree this game helped improve his vocabulary. My son did not know a few of the words so we would discuss the words, look them up on a search engine and show him what they were after the game. We all played this game and all really enjoyed it. My son has played this game with us three times so far, and I expect many more! This is an ideal family game and I cannot wait to take this game along to our next family gathering.  It is right up our street.  The game is excellent quality. Excellent value for money for many fun evenings.  I loved the timer! Nothing makes a game more fun than the pressure of a sand timer running out. I would buy this as we loved this game and would use it many times. I would recommend as I you would be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t enjoy this game.  5 out of 5 for an excellent family game. This is an ideal game for families particularly at family gatherings. The words were all fairly simple but it’s surprising how difficult they can be to explain in less than a minute! Not only did our kids enjoy this but my partner and I enjoyed it so much we got this game out while having drinks with our friends and everyone had a fantastic time playing it! I think everyone would love this game. Lauren Mackay – Logan 12 Years

It looked interesting and it was well packaged and sturdy. It was similar to Articulate but with slightly different rules and a different game board. We all thought it would be fun and it would help us with our own knowledge. The instructions were easy to follow and understand. Instructions can be a difficult thing to follow with some games but we were all clear on exactly how to play the game as soon as we read them and started playing. There were sufficient number of word cards included and the counters were good. It was nothing fancy or complicated which we liked. My daughter is 12 years old and she was able to describe some of the words well but there were some that she did not know. For teens and adults it is ok. I think it would be too difficult for children under 10 but they could play as part of a team. My daughter understood the game and had no trouble playing it. She liked that she could really challenge the adults with trying to describe the word. This was entertaining because she could learn more about the UK and she could find out what the adults really knew about the UK. I found it slightly disappointing as my younger child wanted to sit at the table and play but he could not describe some of the words so that made him feel left out. The game was also quite long especially if we played it exactly to the rules and took steps back for every missed word.  My daughter found that boosted her vocabulary and it helped her learn more about different types of things. She found that if she did find a challenging word that she could not describe, she could look it up in a dictionary and use it for her writing at school and for when she next plays the game. I did find it educational; it helped us adults to find ways of describing words and meaning that the children would understand. we played it as a family and we enjoyed it but the team that had my younger child did not really have as much fun as he could not describe anything and by the time he found a word to describe, the timer would be finished.  My daughter played this twice a week and some weeks more. This game would be ideal for the whole family, as you have more people to play with and the bigger groups would make it easier to guess the words. The game board counters and cards are all well-made and sturdy. After all the gameplay they have had, they are still in very good condition and the kids can be quite harsh in packing it away! It is a durable and enjoyable game where you can get quite a bit of gameplay out of it. It does seem somewhat more expensive than other more popular games though. The game really made us all use more brain power, whether we were guessing the words or describing them. It brought us together as a family and we enjoyed playing it. It is a game that I would look at buying but the price would be something that may make me resist. As I have tested it I know the game is worth playing. I would recommend because it is a fun game to play with the whole family. We had some laughs playing the game as well and it tested our vocabulary as well as UK knowledge. I think other families would enjoy it as well. It was an enjoyable game to play which challenged us as well. The more we played it the better we got at describing words. It did get quite long and frustrating when we didn’t get so many words correct. I feel that this game really makes you think about what to describe/say to your teammate because if the word was Christmas pudding you would not be able to describe it as “This is a desert you have on Christmas” so then it does challenge you and you also have the timer running in the background. The most funniest and stressing thing about this game is that once the timer runs out, the opposing team has a chance to answer the question if you are still on the question when the timer runs out. We did tweak the rules sometimes as taking steps backwards for missed answers was making the game go on for too long and quite frustrating at times. If all older teens or adults were playing then they would not need to tweak this rule. It was a fun and enjoyable game and we will continue to play it frequently especially when we have family gatherings, as it is more fun with more people. Iram Ramzan – Hafsa 12 Years
