Googly Eyes is the hilarious family game that challenges your vision and leaves you googling for more! Put on the zany, vision-altering google eye glasses and start to draw while your team tries to guess what you're drawing. Is that an igloo or a turtle? A birthday cake or a fortress? Players take turns drawing and guessing, so everyone gets a chance to wear the glasses. The glasses come with three sets of lenses that range from mild changes to mind-blowing fun, so no one can see (or draw) straight--your vision will bounce off of the lenses. Googly Eyes is a fun twist on classic drawing games that lets players of different ages and skill levels compete on equal terms, since the goggles make it fun and challenging for everyone. Unlike any other drawing game you don't need to be an artist, and the rules are simple. Just roll the die and move--the space you land on tells you which color lenses to use (easy, medium, or hard). Then pick a card, set the timer, and start drawing. If your team guesses correctly you get to roll and move again; if not, then you stay where you are on the board. The first team to reach Finish wins. For ages 7 and up. 4-16 players.

Fun Game. Great Company. Would By Again.
By Cooper the Beagle
Kids love the game. Kids are 6 to 10 yrs old. Adults liked it too. So it is not out of the realm of getting for an adult too. Seriously.
The only little thing you want to be carful of is with the lenses. This should NOT deter you from getting the game, just giving you a heads up. The game comes w/ 3 sets of lenses and one frame. Depending on the action required in the game, you may need to change out the lenses in the frame because the three sets of lenses give differently googly vision results (ergo the action required in the game is based on doing it with one of the lens types in the frames). If not careful, the lens edges can crack or chip from the stress put on them when changing them in/of of the frames.
I contacted company about this and they were very nice and really seemed interested in feedback. I suggested a different insertion method of the lenses into the frames and/or a dedicated frame/lens combination.
Goliath makes great games for kids and I highly recommend not only this game but any others that have their name on them. Goliath brand games are well thought out, well executed and fun to play.

A pretty fun game for the family. We played it the night we got it and our 5 and 7 year old cracked up! The board game aspect plays second fiddle to the drawing. Our girls could care less about advancing through the board, they just wanted to draw with the silly glasses on. The plastic glasses are of okay quality. I wish the lenses were engineered differently as it's a pain to switch them out and slows down the game play. It's not too difficult to see through them so even our 5 year old was able to draw relatively ok with them on. We like this because it's something diffrent then the classic Sorry or memory games we have. Overall a fun family game!

Fun for all ages
By Brad Presnell
We played this on Christmas with ages ranging from 7-50 something. From the minute we took the glasses out of the box we were all cracking up! The glasses really do make it hard to draw! Seeing the finished drawing when taking the glasses off was hysterical! Plus, the glasses make you look downright silly, but in a fun way. I see this game coming out at our next adult party, especially after a few drinks. Other games get boring for parents, but this one didn't. I highly recommend Googly Eyes!
