Disney Pictopia – Review

Disney Pictopia is a fun family game with many awards to its name and we were excited to find out if this game would be as fun as it looked from the box. Available now RRP £29.99 for ages 7+ and 2-6 players.

Disney Pictopia is a picture based question game, but unlike other board games where you play as an individual the great part of this game is that you answer a lot of the questions as groups. This makes Disney Pictopia a great all ages family game. The box contains: 6 mickey counters, 6 sets of wager coins, a dice, Mickey answer dial, board, rules and 1,000 picture question cards.

We found the rules and game play very easy to learn, and the game played well in our little family of 3, as well with more people as we tested this game on granny too! Each player starts choosing a coloured mickey playing token, 5 wager coins, and the answer dial. cards are shuffled and placed picture face up and you are ready to go. The person with the next Birthday starts as the question master. they throw the dice and move their token this number down the board. The square they land on will show which question from the card will be asked. If the question master lands on gold silver or bronze, then the other players will answer as a team. the solo pick spot and spotlight squares you will need your mickey answer dial.

Before the question is read out you place a wager coin on the board depending on how confident you are that you will get the answer. These are placed face down on the bottom of the board, and then the question is read out. Depending on the square as to how many answers you have to give, and we loved the fun spotlight rounds. These are questions where you have to match the question masters answer using your mickey answer dial. If answered correctly each player moves the same number of spaces as they wagered. These tokens are then put to one side and play continues with the player on the left becoming the next question master.

On first glance I thought Disney Pictopia might be a little tricky for the boy as he has seen lots of Disney films but maybe not as many as I have in my lifetime. I needn’t have worried as I had the tables turned on me when it came to the newer films and Disney characters. The questions cover lots of the Disney TV shows as well as films so there are some I had never seen before. The questions are sometimes challenging, but we found others which looked hard could be worked out with a little thought They are not always the question you think will be with the picture either so this will keep you on your toes!

We have loved Disney Pictopia ( I knew we would) and I think for any Disney loving family this is a must have board game. Games are fun, inclusive of all ages, and get you talking about your favourite characters, or even why you chose Merida to guide you through the forest. I would say our only disappointment is that we cant understand how Dad has managed to win at every game we have played? I think maybe he is a secretly watched more Disney films than we have? The quality of Disney Pictopia means that it will last as a family game, and there are additional rounds and content via the free app.

If Disney is not your family thing, then keep your eyes peeled as the Star Wars version is due out later in the year. I was lucky to have a go of the prototype at the London Toy Fair, and it looks like a winner especially as you can play as Yoda, but beware the questions looked super tricky.

  1. I would love to have tea with Snow White as I would love to hear more about the seven dwarves and their different characters.

  2. It’d have to be the Mad Hatter
    As he says “It’s always tea time”
    He’s intuitive, insightful & annoyingly crazy – just like me
    We’d get on really well 🙂

  3. Mickey Mouse, he has been a cartoon character for such a long time now. He is likely to have lots of tails (tales) to tell.

  4. I would love to have tea with Sleeping Beauty it would be so interesting to discuss her life in the castle and how she fell asleep only to be kissed by a prince.

  5. I would love to have tea with Minnie Mouse so that we could have a nice chat about Mickey and if he helps around the house!!!!
