Dividing into teams, players work together to act out the words on the cards while another team member tries to guess as many different words before the timer runs out. It's a little like Charades on steroids. The players act quickly and can act out together. There are two sets of cards in varying levels of difficulty. While it's not a totally new idea, it is a fresh spin on a classic game. It's also convenient to have a variety of words.
The first evening we played Rollick! was with adults and teenagers and ten year old Amberly. Let's just say some of us are better actors than others. We all had a great time and spent a lot of time laughing.
Amberly especially loved playing Rollick! and she insisted that we play it again for Family Home Evening the following Monday night. While the younger kids had trouble participating as actors they weren't really that bad at guessing. The game suggests over ten as an appropriate age but eight year old Thomas was especially good at guessing the clues and not bad at acting them out either.
Rollick!, a game from The Game Chef, is a family friendly, fun game for parties. I'm sure to throw it in the bag for all our holiday gatherings this season.
