Morphology game #Review

There is nothing better, than sitting around on a weekend night with your family playing board games. I would like to introduce to my readers this really neat board game called Morphology. This game is NOT your ordinary board game. This is a game where you will have to use your imagination. Morphology really showed my Drama Queens creative side and had her imagination running wild. We have played this game at least once a week since it arrived at my house. The game brings a board and a box full of string, wood sticks, glass beads, deck of cards and color cubes. The point of the game is to use the items in the box to help your teammate figure out what the word on your card is. However, you are not allowed to use your body or speak to help them guess. Depending where you land on the board you will have to create the word on your card with your eyes close or with your non- dominant hand. Morphology is a very entertaining game and fun too. Morphology was awarded 2012 teachers choice award for the family. The game is for ages 13+. The Drama Queen is 9 and did pretty good. However, I did give her extra time to create her words. I would totally recommend this game, especially for teens. The game will for sure bring the family together for some family fun. My favorite thing is that this game is for 4 or more players (perfect for big families).

Price: $29.99

About Morphology
From their site

The idea for Morphology first emerged during a snowstorm in Minneapolis, MN. Morphology inventor and recent Macalester College graduate Kate Ryan Reiling and two of her friends were stranded in their apartment and decided to play a board game.

They wanted to do something creative (and help their friend learn Spanish) so they opened a Spanish-English dictionary and built words using Jenga® blocks and Pente® pieces. Inspired by how much fun they had and how amazed she was at what they could build, Kate spent the next years prototyping what would soon become Morphology.
After graduating from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, Kate realized she had something special on her hands. “People kept asking to buy the game but I only had my prototypes which I had to beg to get back.”

When a Tuck professor wanted to purchase games to give out as gifts, Morphology Games was born. “I knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to follow that little voice in my head telling me that I had something special and it was worth chasing.

Morphology Games launched in late fall of 2009, quickly selling out its original units and in 2010, went to the New York Toy Fair where it received two “Top New Toys of 2010” nods. In the fall of 2010, Morphology was selected as TIME’s Top Ten Toys list as the Number 2 Toy of the Year.
