Have you ever found yourself struggling over a game of charades? Maybe your miming skills are a little rusty or you wish you’d agreed to Pictionary instead, at least that way you get visual aids. Well you’re in luck, because Concept is the game for you.

Concept is a Pictionary style board game with a very simple premise; choose a word or phrase from a card and try to convey what it is to your fellow players.


This is done by placing pieces on the board that's covered in various images, colours, symbols and so on. Need someone to guess wine, well put one marker next to the liquid symbol and another next to the colour red. The phrases you choose can be as simple or as complex as you like, as can your path to explaining what you mean. The first person or team to guess the phrase will get 2 victory points, and whoever has the most points at the end of the game will be victorious.


4–12 Players

Game time: 40 minutes
