What It IsGet ready for a new way to play with color thanks to Crayola and Wild Planet who have teamed up for a new line of Crayola-themed games. The new games focus on recreating images and matching and mixing colors, all without the use and mess of traditional art supplies.
Doodle Match is a memory game in which players practice matching colors and objects. The game involves artistic set-up as players color images outlined on 12 specially coated cardboard tiles. Once the tiles are colored, they are shuffled and laid face down on the floor or table.
The game has dual spinners: one points to a color and one points to an image. Players turn over a single tile, hoping to find the color or image on which the spinners landed. If there's a match, they keep the tile. If there's not, the tile is turned back over and the memory portion of the game begins. Once all the tiles have been collected, the game is over and the player with the most tiles wins. Tiles can be wiped clean with a tissue or paper towel. The game is for two to four players.
Doodle Match brings a new challenge to memory exercises because the colors of the images change from game to game—the car that was red and blue in one game might be green and yellow in the next. It all depends on how the child colors the tiles from one game to the next.
