Gift Guide: Morphology Games (Review and Giveaway)

"Morphology is a fun, creative and challenging party
board game combining simple shapes, words and
players’ imagination and creativity.
Using wooden sticks, glass beads and colored cubes
“Morphologists” build words such as butterfly or
airplane for their teammates to guess.
The board takes unique twists turns challenging
players to build their eyes closed or using only the
string--leaving everyone laughing out loud!" 
I grew up playing a lot of games, and loved the feeling of coming together as a family. Morphology is a great family game that will get everyone laughing! I had the pleasure of reviewing Morphology over the holidays and was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was!
 Even if you don't think you are very creative, this game will pull it out of you! Learning how to play takes no time at all. 
Here is how you play the game:
1. DIVIDE INTO TEAMS.
Each team chooses a Morphologist. The Morphologist is the builder each round and rotates with each team.
2. DRAW A WORD FROM THE DECK.
Without talking, the Morphologist must ‘morph’ the pieces into the word.
3. USE THE SHAPES AND PIECES TO BUILD THE WORD.
4. GET YOUR TEAMMATES TO GUESS WITHIN THE ALLOTTED TIME.
Each time the team correctly guesses the word in the 1 minute allowed, they move forward one lily pad. Then the die is passed to the left.
5. IF YOU GUESS CORRECTLY, MOVE YOUR TEAM FROG FORWARD ONE LILY PAD. THE FIRST TEAM TO REACH THE FINISH WINS!
But be ready-the board will take twists and turns as you hop your way through! When you land on a lily pad that says roll, you must roll the die and watch your creativity and laughter grow!   
 The Rules When You Roll The Die!
Roll a 1: Everybody plays: each team chooses a Morphologist to build (they are limited to 5 pieces each). 
Roll a 2: EYES CLOSED: BUILD A WORD WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED! 
 Roll a 3: tuck your ‘dominant’ hang behind your back and challenge yourself to build using only one hand! 
Roll a 4 String only: Build using only the string. 
Roll a 5: Your Pick 5: Before looking at the word, pick 5 pieces and use only these five to build the word. 
Roll a 6: Interception: You can use all of the pieces, but guess well because if you don’t guess, the other team will get a chance to guess the word correctly and steal a point.

 When I took all the pieces out of the box, I was thinking there was no way these pieces could create what was on the cards and that it was going to be too hard! As we began, yes it took a little bit of time to get the brain going, but once the creativity started we were laughing so hard! A lot of the lily pads on the board are labeled roll. When it is your turn to be the Morphologist, you roll the die and follow the rules for that number. My husband rolled 2 so many times it was hilarious. He had to build the word with his eyes closed, and of course it did not look anything close to what he thought he was building. It was very funny!
The only change I would make to the game is, it comes with a string but the string is too stiff to bend into the shape you need, so we switched it out for a more flexible string which worked a lot better. Other then that, the game is perfect, and a blast to play!
 It was a really close game, but unfortunately my team lost! Everyone had great things to say about the game, especially my brother who is very picky when it comes to playing games!

  38. Really nice post. My family and I have game nights often and I must say they are really fun! Lately, we've been trying to do a game night at least once a month. We try to mix it up by playing anything from board games to using Lottery Wheels for trivia. Maybe next month we can try Morphology- I think the family would enjoy it!
