Rapidough – Review and Giveaway

Rapidough is a great fun family game from Drumond Park, for ages 8+ playing with two teams (minimum of 4 players) and has a RRP of £24.99. The boy was excited to play Rapidough as I had told him how we had played this game many years ago with friends, and just how bad Dad Dragon was at making things with dough!

So with Bingo Granny arriving for Mothers Day dinner, the challenge was set to play Rapidough. Bingo Granny was keen to find out more and had a little practice with the boy before he decided on teaming up with me, against Granny and Dad. Rapidough is such a simple game and such laugh out loud fun that I knew everyone would enjoy it.

Setup: The box contains two of each, mats, dough, knife, plunger as well as a box of 300 word cards. Choose your teams, and dough colour from the blue and yellow. Then decide from the packs of cards which ones you are going to use. There are three packs Pack one has only one word which must be modelled. Pack 2 has three words and you can choose which you make. Pack 3 have two words on coloured backgrounds which you model the word the same colour as your dough.

Modelling rules are simple as anything goes, and you decide before the game if you are happy for modellers to animate their creations. Modellers start at the same time and race the other team to make and get the correct guess before their opposing team. Sometimes this happens very fast other times it can be slower as more detailed modeling is needed. The first team to model and guess correctly win and steal a plug of dough from the other team. The winner is the one with dough left when the other team run out!

Rapidough has to be a game I remember being fond of playing as I love the dough modelling, and the creations can be so funny. Especially Dad Dragon as he is not the most creative person. The boy is always keen to win and we set of at a great pace winning the first two rounds and stealing dough from a reluctant Bingo Granny. Our opponents soon pulled back with the next few rounds and for some time it was pretty level. Then the boy made a fantastic Statue of Liberty, which even Dad had to admit was very creative. I think however our opponents were cheating a little with less modelling and more gesturing going on.


The boy and I won the day with a final flourish, and I have to say it was lovely to see him so happy and engrossed in a game. There was much laughter mostly at Dad trying to make an animal, and then trying to stop the boy from taking dough. Rapidough is defiantly a game for stay in-doors family fun. So if you are stuck for something to play with your family on a wet day we can thoroughly recommend Rapidough. If like us you are a smaller family of 3, then don’t worry as the boy invented his own modelling guessing game. He modelled the words and I had to guess the answers, the rules can also be adjusted as suits your family, and even little kids can team up with grown ups to be guesser’s.
