OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Waldo has always been an elusive guy to find, and now he's hidden himself inside the Where's Waldo? Find It game. In this game, you're looking for Waldo, Wenda, and more hidden inside a clear tube filled with thousands of red, blue, and white pellets. Spin the tube, twist it, shake it or tap it to find the 40 items. You'll find the hidden items listed on top of the tube or in the instruction booklet.

You can play the game solo and see how long it takes you to find all 40 items, or set a timer and see how many items you can find in a set amount of time.

But this game also comes with 27 double-sided playing cards so that you can play with more players. Playing with Side 1 means that players take turns flipping over a card and finding an item that fits the description shown on Side 1 of that card. For instance, "Find an item that you'd see at home". If you find an item, you keep the card. If you can't find an item in a reasonable amount of time, you pass your turn. Once all the cards have been played, the player with the most cards wins.

With Side 2, you lay out all 27 cards with Side 2 facing up. Players then take turns getting 10 seconds to find an item that matches three of the characteristics listed on the cards. For instance, "something round", "something hard", and "something you can wear". The player picks up those cards. As the cards dwindle, the items get harder and harder to match. Once all the cards are gone, the player with the most cards wins.

There is also a third way to play. Each item is worth a different point value. Players take turns finding items in 30-second increments, and after five rounds, the player with the most points wins.

Is It Fun?

We like that there are many different ways to play this game. You might even come up with some of your own. And it's a game that you could play at home or on the go, solo or with your friends and family. It's a real challenge to your visual skills, but that's all part of the fun.
