Once a week, sometimes more, we get together as a family and giggle our way through family game night. We play games from Dad and Mom’s childhood (Sorry, Monopoly, Clue, etc.), the kiddos have introduced us to some of their favorites and recently a new game, Morphology has become a favorite for EVERYONE!
Morphology is one of the most unique games we’ve come across and it engages everyone! It uses random items like string, glass beads, cubes of colors and wooden people to create an object from a deck of cards. A game of teamwork, where one person is the Morphologist and makes the magic happen and the other players are the ones guessing what the card says from the creative depiction of master Morphologist.
We divided into teams and picked the Morphologist. Then the fun began as we drew cards from the deck and tried to guess the word being created from the pieces. We moved along the Lily Pads on the board. We groaned when the Morphologist was challenged to create with his eyes closed, with only one hand, with 5 pre-picked items and so much more.
The kiddos all caught on fast to the game, which includes 480 cards, 50 pieces of creative material, a timer, a die and team pieces.
I admit, when reading the instructions, I was worried, Li’l Man wouldn’t catch on and understand. It’s recomended for ages thirteen and older. He begged to be the morphologist and while siblings on his team rolled their eyes, it turned out Li’l Man was Champ! He drew the word “ANCHOR”. The timer was set and with glass beads he made an anchor in perfect form. To add to the great visual he used the string and a wooden person to make it look like the anchor was being cast from a boat. Team guessed the word without any issue!
The game is small enough we took it with us over the weekend to a hotel. It was a big hit when the kiddos saw we brought it. The game offers a lot of variety and the more creative the players the more hilarious the game!
Morphology also offers two levels–an easy level, perfect for the kiddos and a Hard Level making couple’s game night a stroke of genius!
Check out this game for your next game night and let the creativity fly! It’s available at: www.barnesandnoble.com or www.morphologygames.com
