Pass the Pen Review

We were lucky enough to receive a copy of Pass the Pen from Wicked Uncle.

Wicked Uncle

Wicked Uncle is a website of fun, unusual and different presents for children. They can giftwrap your presents, send them direct with a handwritten birthday card and even send you a birthday reminder every year.




Pass the Pen (Family game Ages 8+) is a super fast drawing game with a special pen that retracts the tip on a timer.
This game is fun and simple to play. Pick a card & roll the die to determine what your drawing challenge will be, then press the pen timer and start to draw. If someone guesses correctly what you've drawn you both get points, but if your nib disappears before they can guess, then you have to ‘Pass the Pen’. The pen timer can be set to 10 or 15 seconds.  There's 500 subjects to draw.






My children are 9 & 6 and both loved the game although we needed to adjust it slightly for the younger one and doubled up the time limits.



It is a quick easy game that takes up minimal space and could be easily transported.  My children loved the retractable pen. I must admit it was a little harder than it looks to get a meaningful picture done against the clock but it was good fun & we ended up with some funny pictures. It was nice to play a proper game instead of the kids being glued to YouTube or computer games. I would happily recommend.

Disclaimer: We were sent Pass the Pen to review.  Opinions are 100% my own.

  1. It's great to play real games as some kiddies do spend a lot of their in front of a screen whatever mode of technology it may be! On a sunny day when there is time fresh air is best too :) as long as games aren't too complicated I'm in :) :) the game sounds fun xxx
