The Guess My Picture game is fun and educational. It develops problem solving and hand-eye coordination skills in an entertaining manner. The game comes with one hundred photo cards and eighty-two multi-colored shapes used to build the pictures found on the photo cards. The photo cards have pictures of a variety of items such as animals (i.e. crab, rabbit, giraffe…) and objects (i.e fire truck, skate board, table). The players use the shapes to "build" the picture. There are many different shapes in a variety of colors. Each player takes a turn being the artist and designs three of the six pictures they have chosen. Then the other players have to guess what the artist made. The players get a star card for each correct guess (as does the artist), and the person with the most stars at the end wins.

This is a game that the whole family can play. Our young testers liked it, and they agreed to play it repeatedly. The game keeps them engaged, and play usually lasts about 45 minutes. Children under 10 will enjoy it most, as older children will probably become bored with the concept. It is usually easy for an older child or an adult to guess what picture has been made. We love that it promotes good problem solving skills in young children.
