Peanuts Memory Master and Scooby-Doo! Spooky Journey Board Game Review
If you want to play a game that features some of your favorite characters, then check out two new games featuring the Peanuts characters and the gang from Scooby-Doo!
Peanuts Memory Master is a game of matching and memory like you’ve never played before. In this game, you’ll need two teams of two players, with teammates sitting opposite each other. Each player gets five face-down cards in front of them. Cards feature images of favorite Peanuts characters, such as Snoopy, Linus, and Charlie Brown. Each player has 10 to 15 seconds to secretly look at their cards. Then teammates exchange cards and get another 10 to 15 seconds to pick a card from their newly exchanged hand that they think their partner will choose. Once you have your card, place it face down in front of you. Now compare the chosen cards. You score points by matching the same card color and/or the same character. The game comes with scorecards to help you keep track of your score. Continue the game with five new cards to each player, and the first team to get 12 points wins. The game is for four players ages 6 and up, and it comes with 108 game cards and four score cards.
Become one of those meddling kids when you play the Scooby-Doo! Spooky Journey Board Game. You can play as Velma, Daphne, Fred, or Shaggy and Scooby together. Take turns rolling the die and moving around the game board. Sometimes you’ll land on a Mystery Inc. space. That means you draw a Mystery Inc. card and follow the instructions. You might have to move forward or backward, roll again, or lose a turn. If you land on footprints, follow them up or down. A Swap means you change places with another character on the board. And whenever you land on a space occupied by another player, you’ve got to have an Eating Contest. This means that both players roll the die, and the player with the highest roll wins. The player with the lowest roll is sent backward on the board the difference between the rolls. The first two players to reach the Finish space compete in a final best-of-three Eating Contest. The game is for two to four players ages 8 and up. It comes with a gameboard, game rules, 42 Mystery Inc. cards, four character pieces, and an eight-sided die.
Should I get it?
What’s great about both of these games is that they feature images of favorite characters. So whether you like Peanuts or Scooby-Doo, you’ll enjoy these games.
The Peanuts game is definitely a new take on a traditional memory and matching game. We like its unique team challenge, though you could probably play the traditional way, too, if you wanted.
The Scooby-Doo! Game’s different board spaces keep the gameplay exciting. It’s an easy-to-learn game that the whole family can play. Although, it is a bit weird to play competitively as individual characters when usually the four-person-one-dog team works together.
