Everyone gathers round the TV with a score sheet and pen at the ready. Start the DVD and the first thing you see is a blank screen. then Little by little a hidden image appears on the screen. As the round progresses more of the hidden image becomes visible and by the end of the round the picture is completely revealed.
Everyone plays at once. The aim of the game is to guess what the hidden image is as quickly as you can and ideally faster than the other players. The earlier you guess, the more points you score.
All kinds of trick photography, unusual camera angles, odd lighting and special effects spice things up a bit. So the simple task of identifying everyday objects is suddenly a whole lot trickier and more fun than you ever thought possible.
This game is amazingly simple to operate, no special equipment needed other than a normal DVD player. Each player needs a pen and paper. With eight rounds per game and twenty games on the disk Gardeners Guesses offers hours of quality fun.
This is instant and intriguing fun for gardeners and non gardeners alike . Challenging yet simple to play,full rules included on the disc, aimed at ages ages 9 and up.
