Articulate is a really fab game. It's not really suitable for children, but great fun for older teenagers and adults. It's easy to learn and simple to set up. The idea is for teams to describe words from differrent categories, it gets everyone talking and thinking fast and can be hilarious. It has been the number one game in our family for years.

We get this game out at EVERY opportunity. We have had so much fun; I would highly recommend this game to anybody that enjoys a seriously good laugh. To listen and watch how people describe and act out in so many different ways. We have had great fun with people from 15yrs to 78, believe me we have done the rounds with all our family and friends. I still find I have to describe things I have never come across before and I have had the game for 5 years. An absolute must! ( Warning: alcohol can often prevent you from finishing the game due to too much laugher )

This is one of my very favourite games to play and we always bring it out when friends or family get together. The great thing about the game is that there isn't really a limit to how many people can play as you have to play in teams. The premise of the game is that you have to descirbe the word on the card without acutally saying the word. There are several categories of words including, object, action, people and places etc. You have to describe as many words as you can for your team to guess beofre the egg timer runs out. It sounds easy but it is amazing how people react under pressure and how people describe certain words. This has produced so many moments of absolute hilarity for us, I don't think I will ever tire of it. A must have game in my opinion and would recommend it to anyone!

This is a great game but dreadfully over-priced for what is just a board with spinner and set of cards in a box. Compare it with something like Really Nasty Horse Racing which has a lot more in the box for a much lower price.

Consider Taboo as an alternative to Articulate. Articulate is fast-paced and probably better for children, but most adults seem to prefer the greater depth of Taboo - certainly I do!

this game is amazing. it is suitable for all ages and can end up being hilarious. it is majorly competitive and is definitely not another 'quiet' board game. it is soo good and i played it for the first time the other day and it was the best fun I had had in ages!

This is a really amusing game and one that never fails to get everyone in the family involved; good at bringing together even the most distant of relatives! It's also good for younger children to improve their lateral thinking, problem solving and verbal skills. The only down side being that you can only really play it with 4 or more people, otherwise it simply isn't as enjoyable. Overall though a classic!

Excellent! This game is not like other board games which take ages and make you even more bored then you were when you started. It is great. It is fast moving, Frantic and a good laugh. One of the people on your team is trying to describe to you and to get out of you a word without saying that word themselves. A bit like verbal Charades or Pictionary. A great buy. I strongly recommend it!!

This game is fast and full of fun. It can involve the whole family, groups of friends or it would be a good party game at a work night out. Although it recommends being over 12 we played with kids younger than this and they loved it. It is a team game which heightens the fun and while competitive it is not taken too seriously. One for Christmas and any family get together.

This game is a must have in your collection. It manages to bring together charades with fast talking description. I personally believe it's suitable for all ages, but if there is a younger player I do suggest that they team up with a teenager or adult when it's their turn, as they can be quite tricky.

The game is hilarious, for example on one turn my friend had KING KONG. He ran out the room doing a monkey impression they jumped on the sofa and clung onto the bookcase while banging his chest and letting out a few monkey shrieks.

I would recommend this to everyone and anyone, it's certainly a classic in my household.

I love this game!!! We always get it out at Christmastime when all the reletives are over. It can be quite hard, but that just adds to the fun. Hilarious watching people struggling to describe something difficult. And you learn things while playing!!! Well worth getting - it's really really good.
