Emojito party game from Tactic is a fun family game where you imitate emotions whilst the other players guess which one you are trying to be. With a game board, set of full colour emotion cards and player pieces, it’s a fun, fast paced game that certainly brought smiles, giggles and lots of “Can we play again?” comments to our house.
Recommended for ages 7+ I knew my two children would enjoy Emojito. My daughter is 9 and my son is 6 but he is very humourous, funny and enjoys things such as making faces so I knew he’d be able to join in and we could accommodate the game around him. The children were eager to set the game up which consists of a game board, player pieces, a dial for each player to mark their guess on (this stops any cheating or people changing their mind) and a good sized deck of emotion cards. The cards are really bright and colourful using animals to demonstrate each emotion.
The idea of the game is to pick a card and that is the one the player has to try and imitate, and then you place that along with a further six cards around the board. The other players then have to guess which of the seven cards you are trying to be and put the relevant number on to their dial. Everyone then shows each other the number they have chosen and anyone that guesses correctly gets to move around the board. Each time you pass the chequered line you collect a ‘trophy’ card (any card that is in play on that round) and the eventual winner is the first person to collect five trophy cards.
Once we got into play mode, the kids loved it. Making and imitating faces was so funny and the other players were giggling away trying to guess which card they were trying to be. We had lots of fun and ended up playing this many times over consecutive days and it’s now a regular game that comes out to play several times a week.
We found the Emojito game to be really fun, creating great interactions with each other and caused lots of laughter and enjoyment. Both children loved creating different emotions and it was certainly a bit different from other games we already own which maintained interest and kept them engaged in the game play!
