Our Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, what we have to say about the fun Disney communication game. This is a drawing title with constraints like many others but what makes this game special is that it plays into the Disney universe perfectly. If you want to entertain some Disney fans, this is a great way to do it. For each drawing you must do, you get a character (From Winnie The Poo to the legend himself Mickey Mouse) and a random action (like “blowing bubbles” or “growing a beard”). It is up to you to mash them up. Since a little Disney knowledge goes a long way here, being able to think about these characters is going to take you far in being able to play this game.

We took a look across fun, replayability, player interaction, quality and art & style to come up with the overall score for our Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review. See the breakdown by category below.

– CATEGORY BREAKDOWN –

Fun (7 out of 10)

For the fun section of the Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, we award a good 7 out of 10. The game is a drawing and guessing game that can hold it with the best of them. There is no crazy innovation or anything truly special here, but it fits in its own world very well. By bringing this into the Disney universe, the flow of clues and tasks fit really well (hopefully) with the people playing. By adding just a little bit of specificity while keeping things vague enough to be interesting, it makes for a fun experience for any Disney fan and definitely something that kids love.

Replayability (6 out of 10)

For the replayability section of the Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, we award a solid 6 out of 10. This could easily be the type of thing that gets old but the core mechanic of mixing one of the many characters randomly with one of the many actions randomly helps kick up the replayability considerably. With 60 different cards, there are thousands of different combination clues that could come up and that will keep many games to come interesting. Even if someone gets the same clue, how everyone attacks it and what they choose to the other players is constantly changing.

Player Interaction (6 out of 10)

For the player interaction section of the Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, we award a solid 6 out of 10. There is nothing groundbreaking here, but player interaction is pretty much everything you need to think about so it weighs heavily on gameplay. When it comes to drawing games, it is not about drawing something perfect, it is about conveying information to the other players and this game gives some great opportunities for players to do so. For fans of Disney, this is a great opportunity for a good back and forth and ensuing laughs and discussions about some of the most iconic characters in history.

Quality (6 out of 10)

For the quality section of the Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, we award a solid 6 out of 10. Whenever you are paying for a Disney license, you need to have a certain level of quality to appease them and put out a good enough product to make a little money. This game does that all just fine but it ends there. Everything could probably be kicked up a notch, from the box to the components, but it is all very fine. The components get the job done and in particular, the way the individual dry erase pads for clue drawing are made is well done. The included felt tip pens erase and draw and it takes a long time to start to be ineffective at the task.

Art & Style (5 out of 10)

For the art & style section of the Sketchy Tales Disney Edition review, we award a middle of the road 5 out of 10. This is all very average, but solid. All the Disney characters have a nice colorful illustration quality to them and everything has a touch of whimsey, but that is about it. The art and style was never the most important thing about this game, but that is ok, because it is mainly about creating it for yourself. The box art is a little generic, but that is not the most important thing.

This is a drawing game with constraints like many others but what makes this game special is that it plays into the Disney universe perfectly. There are many options out there in this space, but this title fills a niche very nicely and given the mashup of clues, lends itself to replayability and general fun that might last longer than one would have thought.
