Drumond Park The Logo Board Game
Advantages: Good for all the family
The Logo Game is a recent addition to Drummond Park's suite of board games. It has been around for about 2 years and in that short time it has become a firm favourite in our Christmas Day board game list.
==How to play==
You have a board that spirals into the centre and pieces that you move around the board. The group splits up into two teams, it is better to have a few players rather than just two people playing. One person from the team agrees to be quizmaster (this can change in each round) and picks up a question card. The question cards have a mixture of questions on them, some are all about one Logo, some ask you to guess what the logo is by showing you part of it or sometimes it can be a Pot Luck question card and the questions will be unrelated and be about 4 different questions.
The questions are graded by difficulty, the first one 'red' is easy, then green, then yellow before getting to the most difficult, purple. Typically most people, even 10-12 year old kids can get the first two questions on most cards, but as they say, it is only easy if you know it! The purple question isn't impossible but does tend to be a lot harder.
When I talk about Logo's I mean branding, so you might be asked something simple like "What logo is this?" and shown a huge yellow M on a red background (simples, its McDonald's!), the green question might be "what is the name of the fish burger in McDonald's?" (i.e. fillet-o-fish), the yellow might be "how many McDonald's are there in the Uk?" and the purple might be "What year was Ronald McDonald brought out as the face of McDonald's?" - as you can see they get harder and harder and aren't all linked to the logo but are linked to the one brand.
It is good if you have a mixture of ages and talents on the team as some brands are a lot older like Bird's and others are difficult (for me) about cars, there is usually something for everyone.
If the team can't answer a question, the other team get the chance to steal. The other point is that the spaces on the board are colour coded so if you get a red question right you can jump ahead quite far as they don't go in order, the sequence might go red, green, yellow, purple, yellow, green, purple, red. As you can see if you got a red question right, you could jump ahead about six spaces.
==Why do I like it==
It is good for groups, everyone gets involved and good for a range of ages as usually someone can answer the question. It is quite up to date in terms of the questions which is also helpful. It is quite a lively and energetic game and I like that one team can 'steal' from the other and the way the board is set up, they can jump ahead quickly but also be caught up quickly.
At ~£25 this isn't a cheap game but the quality of the board, cards and items is really good and there is a lot of longevity in the game, plenty of cards so they don't get repeated frequently. I would highly recommend this game!
