Play EXTRA Sudoku and win Logo – the UK’s number one best-selling family board game

We love our brands, and the logos that symbolise them. We’re even prepared to be walking adverts by wearing logos on our clothes, shoes and bags. Everyone in the family, young and old, can spot a Shell petrol station or a Burger King at 500 metres, just from the sign. And while we may not consciously realise it, we all know much, much more about these essential marketing emblems than we think.

 

That’s what makes LOGO, the brilliant, highly popular picture board game from Drumond Park (rrp £32.99) such a sure-fire winner. The game features recognition and knowledge questions based on hundreds of the UK’s best loved and most iconic brands – from the AA, Bird’s Eye and BMW to Walkers crisps and Wrigley’s gum.  There are 400 question cards in three categories – 200 Pictorial, 100 Themed and 100 ‘Pot Luck’. Each Picture card features full- or part- logo images to identify, coupled with questions relating to the brand. The answers on the Themed cards relate to the headings, such as ‘Birds’ (eg Kiwi Shoe Polish, Penguin, Swan Vestas) and ‘Relatives’ (eg Aunt Bessie’s, Daddies, Uncle Ben’s).

 

Each player is making for the Winning Zone. Each round, the questioner picks a card and asks a player four questions about the logo or product pictured. For every correct answer, the player moves their piece around the coloured board.  Progress is straightforward and speedy – everyone loves this game!
