Dingbats is a highly enjoyable game where you attempt to make sense of words and/or pictures to create words or a well-known phrase. The game includes three difficulties of puzzle, from Thingbats (easiest) through Dingbats and Kingbats (hardest). The board included gives the game a bit more structure than just picking cards at random and trying to guess the meaning. The replay value of the game is somewhat limited because there are only 399 puzzle cards supplied with the game. One hour's play could easily use half the cards. If you play it more than occasionally, you'll quickly start remembering the answers rather than working them out, and the fun of the game will be worn out. Overall though, the game is very worthwhile and even if you finish using it yourself can easily be passed on to a friend or neighbour to enjoy all over again.
This is a great game for all ages and all numbers of people (from 2 players upwards). One of the best things about it is that you can play for as long or as short as you like, it doesn't take long to set up and doesn't need much space either. It's not too complicated to play but it does get you thinking. The timer (which makes excellent sounds!) means it keeps a good pace too. An excellent and fun game!
