Where’s Waldo? The Amazing Picture Hunt Game Review (Techno Source)

What It Is

Where's Waldo? The Amazing Picture Hunt Game is a fast-paced scavenger hunt game. Players start by putting the 138 object chips on the board to create a Waldo scene. Each player takes a search card, which will tell them what objects they need to find. One player yells, "Start!" and everybody begins searching for the object chips that match the objects on their search card. There is only one object chip for each picture, so everyone is looking for different items during the game. If you find a chip that matches one of your search card items, pick it up and place it on your card. There's a Waldo picture on each search card, but each has a different color background so don't grab the wrong one. The player who completes his entire search card first yells, "Waldo!" and wins the game. The other players can keep searching to see who comes in second place, third place, and so on.

The Amazing Picture Hunt Game comes with a game board, 138 object chips, six double-sided search cards, and two Where's Waldo? postcards that kids can send to friends or collect. It is for two to six players.

Is It Fun?

This game is very easy to learn, but finding the pictures can be very challenging. The game board without the object chips on it is cluttered with pictures. When you add the object chips, it gets even more cluttered, so you'll really have to look closely to find the objects on your search card. And everyone searching at the same time adds a level of excitement to the game.

Who It’s For

The Where's Waldo? The Amazing Picture Hunt Game is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The pictures on the search cards are different sizes, so it might be helpful to start searching for the larger pictures first because they will be easier to find on the board.

Additional Where's Waldo? games include Where's Waldo? Join the Search and Where's Waldo? Mixed-Up Match Up! Card Game. Each is sold separately.
