RandomLine Squiggle Game Beats the Rest- Hands Down! Review + Giveaway

 We love family game night. We also have a problem finding stuff that is fun for us, and the kids. As a mom of a gifted child, finding a game that he likes, that's not too babyish or too advanced, is a struggle. Also, he hates to be creative, but given the right opportunity to, he's extremely creative. While looking for games for the kids for the holidays, I happened to find this amazing company called RandomLine.

RandomLine products encourage just the use of your imagination- no batteries, no noises, just pure fun. Travel pads are available for long trips, birthday favors, or stocking stuffers. Whether your child is 4 or 40, this line of games is sure to be a hit.


Alphabet SQUIGGLE is a unique, educational board game that introduces letters to children in a fun and creative way. Kids will learn and improve letter recognition and handwriting while strengthening their vocabulary and building self esteem. This item is geared for children 4-7.

Approx. Retail Value: $20
Available at Randomline, Amazon, eBeanstalk, and more. A travel version is also available.


Kids that are 8 and up can enjoy the traditional Squiggle game, Squiggle Connect, or the brand new Hurry Up! The Dice Game. SQUIGGLE CONNECT is a hilarious drawing game where players compete by changing a squiggly line into a picture. No artistic talent required . . . just your imagination!

It all starts with a roll of the “dot” cube and then the dots are connected by random lines using the “connect” cube. Once everyone has their unique squiggly line in front of them, play begins. Players have 60 seconds to transform their wavy and wacky line into a picture. They can be as simple or detailed as they want. When time is up, each player explains their drawing to the other players. This is where you may fall over laughing as you listen to some real nonsense! Once each player has had chance to explain what they drew, voting begins. Each player votes on only one other players drawing using a voting card.

The voting cards offer either a descriptive praise or a nuance of criticism such as "put that in a doggie bag" or "a monkey can do better". Each card also has a point value and players give them to each other based on their picture and description. It’s hysterical!

We were recently given the opportunity to review the travel game, Squiggle Mix Up. I introduced it to my friends at a ladies night get together to get their opinions on it. We took turns spinning the wheels and creating hysterical hybrid animals, then trying to guess what the animals were, and create names for our creations.


You start off by spinning the wheels of animals. You then take the pad and start your drawing with the squiggle on the page. It's much harder than it sounds, especially because normally the squiggle doesn't look like it can belong in any of your animals without difficulty. Once you get over the fact that working with the squiggle is going to be tough, you get crazy creations like the ones pictured on the left.

The best part is that it doesn't matter whether or not you can draw or not, you just try.. that's what makes it even more fun. As you can see, there were varying levels of artistic ability at the house that day, but I truly believe that spinning the right type of squiggle truly makes the difference. If anything, the varying levels of creativity definitely makes for an afternoon or evening filled with laughter!!

We laughed so hard at points we were crying! We play a lot of games on ladies nights, and let me tell you, this game has been requested multiple times!

What I love about the travel version is that I can bring it in the car, grocery shopping, where ever, and no matter where I am the sound of the kids cracking up is all you hear. Abbie can't really do it well right now, but she loves watching Alex draw "the crazy animals".

I also love that there's no pieces to lose or misplace, as the wheels are attached to the cardboard backing, and so is the pad. It comes with a little pencil, but you can use pen, pencil, marker or crayons on the paper.

It sells for approximately $8 and makes a great stocking stuffer, grab bag gift, or gift for the people, kids or families that seem to have everything. I'm thinking about picking a couple up for my nieces. Everything they own is electronic. I like taking it back to the basics.

Our new friends at Randomline have offered one of our readers their chance to WIN a Squiggle Mix-Up game for themselves!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER!!
Please refer to our WINNERS PAGE for more information on how to claim your prize.

We're taking a loooooooooong road trip from Rhode Island to Florida in the spring. These would be GREAT for my two older kids!

I would love the Squiggle On-The-Go for my 4 (will be 5 by then) year old and the Mix Up pad for my 8 year old daughter!
