Morphology {A Timberdoodle Review}


“The hilarious guessing game where creativity wins!”

Morphology is Timberdoodle’s 2011 Game of the Year and when offered a chance to review it, I was game to find out why!

“Morphology is the perfect balance of competition and collaboration. Using wooden pawns, glass beads, small colorful wooden blocks, a bit of string, popsicle sticks, and more, Morphology asks players to create an image for their teammates to identify.”

We were able to play as a family, while baby was sleeping. The game has a lot of small pieces that could be a choking hazard or easily get lost!

And while it is designed for ages 13 and up, it is fun for younger ages, especially when more time is given. Wish I would have read that on the website before we played!  Our youngest player (age 4) had the same time limit as the older {and, ahem, more competitive} players. It would have been more fun to double the time for the little ones. They still had fun, though!

We divided into two teams and took turns creating and guessing.

At first the game is easy. Then it gets harder. You have to roll to determine how you play.

Roll a:

1 – everybody plays

2 – play with your eyes closed

3 – play with your weak hand only

4 – play with string only (The string was the most coveted piece! Although, I think it would be more fun with a wired string to make shapes easier).

5 – you pick 5 objects to play with

6 – interception (guess the word if the other team fails to guess)

Playing with his eyes closed!

Create pictures of the word using the components.

There are 600 cards with 60 building components. The cards have both an easy and a hard option. You are not given a category and that was on my mind the whole time – what sort of word am I trying to guess? Most of the words are nouns, but some are action words. It is similar to Pictionary, and not at all like Charades, although you can “puppeteer” the components. And you cannot spell out the word.

Almost to the finish.

Even though I was on the winning team (with Jordan and Eliana), I stopped enjoying this game towards the end. The “Pick 3” rule was hard and made this game ultra competitive – too much for me. Everyone else gave Morphology two thumbs up and said they thought the game was great. . . I think the game would be GREAT if next time they play without me! (LOL)
