## Editor's Review

If you love playing games, then check out these two new games from Fireside Games.

If you like Pictionary and Charades, then you’ll like the challenge of Stringamajig. There’s a loop of string and 140 word cards. Draw a card, pick a word from that card, and then draw, move, and animate the string to get other players to guess the word. When you draw a card, look at the back of the card now showing on the deck. If you see, for instance, 1 and 4, you can only choose between the first and fourth words on your card. If a person guesses the word correctly, they earn that card. Try to get through as many words as you can before the 60-second timer runs out. Drawers score one point for every word guessed, and each guesser scores a point for every correct guess they made. Keep track of the scores on the scorepad. Each word card also has Challenge words. If you choose a challenge word, not only do you have to act it out with the string, but you might have to do it with another player, with your eyes closed, or avoiding forbidden words. Because of the extra challenge, these words are worth two points to the drawer when guessed correctly. You can also use the four blank cards to add your own favorite words! If you’re playing with four to six players, each player takes two turns as the drawer, and then the player with the most points wins. If you have seven to 10 players, each person gets one turn as the drawer before you tally up all the points to determine the winner. The game instructions provide rule reminders on the back, as well as alternate rules to change things up, depending on who you play with. This game is for ages 13 and up.

## Should I get it?

Both of these games are very different but very fun. For Stringamajig, players will like the challenge of using the string to convey a word. We like that the game has alternate rules to change things up and that Challenge words offer another level of difficulty. This game will be fun for people who like Charades, drawing games, and word games.Â

Here, Kitty, Kitty! has a nice level of strategy and is perfect for cat lovers. (Bonus – no one will be allergic to these cat figures!) The cards have fun illustrations, and there’s a nice variety of cards with different actions to make gameplay different every time.Â
