My family and I love playing board games together because it’s a great chance for us to all bond together and have some fun. On Valentine’s Day, we decided to try our hand at Morphology, which, is a board game that allows you to use your creativity and guessing skills to try and win for your team. This game requires 4 or more players and is recommended for ages 13 years and up. My twin girls played with us and they are only 9 years old and were able to play along with the adults just fine.
The game comes with word cards that are marked easy and hard, a game board, dice, timer and lots of small and unique pieces to create with. How does it work? You first select your teams, the team with the youngest player goes first. The board is clearly marked with instructions on your next move, depending on where your pawn lands.
You will pick someone (from your team) to be the “Morphologist”, who will pick a card and then try to create the word from the card into a picture by using the unique objects in the game. For example, my daughter picked the word “tiles” and then decided to use short sticks to make a house with a roof, she then used red stones on the roof of the house to look like tiles. If anyone from your team correctly guesses the word, then you move forward on the game board.
The game does become a little trickier as you move closer and closer to the finish line. For example, one of the challenges was to create your word by keeping your eyes closed until the timer runs out. It was very difficult to find objects to use and make sure it was turning out the way you wanted it to, but, there were so many laughs and giggles through it all. We had so much fun, that we are going to play this game again after dinner time with the kids.
