Yamodo Gizmos & Gadgets review & giveaway



THE 3 WINNERS ARE:

ANDREA

SHANDA

MARY J

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!



I received this game in the mail from Yamodo as I was driving out to take my son to the orthodontist.  Not the most fun place in the world to hang out on a cold winter afternoon!  I stuck it in my pocketbook to look over while waiting.  Boy am I glad that I did!  We spent the whole time drawing, writing and laughing :)  So much so that the doctor leaned over to take a look at what all the noise was about.  

As the picture above shows this a small spiral bound book. We received the Gizmo's and Gadgets book.  Inside are pages of very strange words at the top of the page like:
  • noobatron
  • ploober
  • grizlocker

Using this nonsense word at the top of the page, you create a drawing around the pre-drawn lines on the page and add a definition on the bottom. The fun part comes is that you pass the book around until someone thinks the drawing is completed.  Quite interesting when you think noobatron is a noisy robot who whacks at flies but someone else wants it to be a llama with antenna!  When the book leaves your hands, you never know what will on the page when it returns!

Here is our first attempt.....the word is gobblerbot!  Here's our explanation and picture of a gobblerbot:

A mouth with big teeth that eats small fish with his tongue while singing!

You will notice in the upper right corner a small box that shows what was on the page for us to start our drawing with.

The only change I would recommend to the company is instead of having "Yamodo! your mind...drawn out" on the back of each page put another crazy word.  That way we could have twice as much fun in this little book :)

I am a competitor, so I like a game where I not only have a lot of fun and laughs, but one I CAN WIN!!!  The makers of Yamodo have already thought of that.  They have a game called  Yamodo Party Time.  
Feel free to buy me one!

  15. These games are great! I've bookmarked the site for when I have a little extra time to really browse. I definitely am leaning toward getting the Yamodo Party Time after the first of the year to stave off that cabin fever that tends to creep in around February. (Oh, and I'm a GFC follower, too!)
