Kids Say:


“This game is aimed at non-board game families. It belongs on the shelf with Sorry, Monopoly, etc. It is definitely approachable and easy to teach, even to stupid people. The pictures are the star of the game; They range from a girl with bacon earrings to a weirdly terrifying contortionist in patent leather boots. I play this every time I visit my grandma, but mostly because I don’t want to play bridge or mahjong.”


“Good for a few laughs. Something to fill the time if you’re bored, but overall, uninspiring.”



Adults Say:


“Picwits is one of a seemingly infinite number of commercial attempts to capitalize on the popularity of party games like Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity. In Picwits, one player draws a card with a phrase on it, such as ‘That’s my boy’ or ‘Born like this.’ Every other player has to choose a stock photo from their hand of cards that best represents the phrase. Maybe they’ll pick a pug wearing a bonnet or a fat baby with food in her hair, and the player will pass arbitrary judgment about which phrase/photo pairing is their favorite.”


“I tend to roll my eyes at games that dole out points based on opinions, but it’s a reasonable choice for small kids or non-gamers who are afraid of both strategy and creativity. This is not to say it fails as a party game. To the contrary, it is always worth a few chuckles, and has reasonable replay value if you don’t binge on it. I would be perfectly happy to spend 45 minutes playing this twice a year for the rest of my life.”
