My Thoughts

What happens when you put a fun game with a popular movie together?   A fun blasting card game for everyone to play with.  And as if this wasn’t enough, this card game contains not one, not two, but four games to play with your family and friends.

As in all Pictureka games, when you find a match, you need to yell PICTUREKA!   (yes even the app for iPhone and iPad yells the name…!).

The game 8-away is quite simple to play.   If you are the first player to get rid of all your card you WIN!    Each player receives 8 cards and place them to see 4 face up and 4 face down.   The player who makes the best car noise goes first and turn a mission card.    After reading the mission everyone has to look at their own cards to find a picture that match the mission.    If you find one, you pick it up as fast as you can and slap it on the mission card and yell… you guessed it – PICTUREKA!

The fame Alphabetti consists of a race to find pics starting with a series of letters.   The player with the most cards at the end wins.   You will need to decide a start letter and an end letter.  You don’t have to go through the whole alphabet though I think it would be an interesting challenge…   

The game Matchureka will test your memory.  This time the biggest Cars fan starts the game.  Turn a mission card, read the missions on it and pick two cards from the setup.   Compare them with the 2 missions.   If there is a match yell Pictureka!  The first player that collect 4 mission cards win!

Finally, the Pass the Pics game is won when someone collects 3 mission cards.   Each player receives 4 picture cards in their hands and when a mission car is read, you have to look in your cards to see if you can find 2 cards that show show what is mentioned on the mission card.   

This game is perfect for vacation as it is easy to pack and doesn’t take much place.    You can even include it in your purse or carry-on if you like.     However, this particular game needs at least two players to play minimum.   

And to add to the fun, if you get a spare tire in your set for any game you can use it for any picture card you want.

This card game would make a perfect stocking stuffer for your kids, niece/nephew, or anyone who likes Pictureka!
