When visiting Ross’ parents, there is nothing I love more than getting the kids off to bed and then sitting down with a glass of wine and a game or two – whether it be cards or a board game. There are plenty of family games to include younger members but I love the fact that Drumond Park have introduced us to a great fun challenge in the form of Who’s The Dude?
Details of the Drumond Park Who’s The Dude?
Charades is definitely one of my favourites. But have you ever tried playing it with a difference? Who’s The Dude? is the Drumond Park version of this age-old party game but in a much more grown-up fashion.
You play with the game with 3-8 players, either individually or in teams. The first player takes one of the 110 scenario charade cards, and chooses a heading from the four choices displayed. These include ‘what’s happening?’, ‘what are we doing?’, ‘where are we?’, or ‘what am I?’ and then brings on the Dude! The Dude is basically an inflatable man!
How to play
The others then have 45 seconds to guess exactly what is going on, in as many situations as possible! You can measure the timer by using either the downloaded ‘The Dude App’ or the timer on your phone. You have to act things like being ‘on a first date’ or ‘planking’, or ‘putting on sunscreen’ – all with hilarious consequences as you involved the ‘dude’! There are also simple descriptions of what the Dude is up to to act out. These include being ‘a Lifeguard’ or ‘a Sumo wrestler’. There are over 440 charades and, because of the potential for major innuendo, you will be highly entertained!
When someone gets it right then they receive a point. Then it’s the next person or team’s go. After 4 rounds, the person or team with the highest number of points is the winner – or winners.
There aren’t enough people in our family to play this game but I have had a look at what is inside the box and this is definitely going to be a hit in the evening at Christmas. The adults will all have had a drink or 3 and I can imagine the hilarity that will ensue when playing this game. There is plenty of chances for misinterpretation when one of us tries to convince the other players that we are ‘stuffing a turkey’, ‘pole dancing’ or ‘blowing The Dude’s nose’?!
