Disastrous doodling

A hilarious game that exposes the questionable artists in the family.

Calling all family detectives!

This game doesn’t just involve the whole family – it includes the entire house! One player hides an item from around the house in the box, and the rest of the family have to work out what’s inside.

Now this is a real test…

This one’s for the relative that turns up to the family gathering armed with general knowledge – they may be smart, but are they smarter than a box of rocks?

For the trivia-obsessed and the self-proclaimed quizmasters, this present game is a hilarious challenge!
