We are a gaming family. I mean, we have basically every gaming console ever made (yes I have the original NES still – although it is in the attic and not set up – but that is another story). When we first heard about Scribblenauts Showdown, we knew it was likely be an instant hit with our family. We love battling it out with each other and are constantly playing games like Mario Kart, 1, 2, Switch, and Bomberman. All four of us have some competitiveness about us, so this game was right up our alley! Luckily for us, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gave us a copy to check it out the day it came out – and we fell in love right away!


One of my favorite things about this game is that we can play together as a family – all four of us – if we want to. No taking turns to battle it out one on one (unless we want to in versus mode). Which brings me to another point, having three different modes to choose from is truly amazing. This game has brought hours and hours of laughs to our family already – in just 4 days! I highly recommend this for families and people that like fun. But if you aren’t a fan of fun, you can skip this one.

My five year old’s favorite came to play is the eating game because she likes to purposefully make her Scribblenaut throw up. Which is NOT the goal of the game. But watching her giggle as she does it is fantastic. My older daughter likes the racing game. And if we come across a SWAP OBJECTS game (where you make objects for the other person), they are really good at choosing bad items that can actually hurt their opponent. Girls after my own heart….


This game is for families that love to have fun together! It has been less than a week and Scribblenauts Showdown is already one of the most played games in our home. We have been battling it out in showdown mode nightly! My daughters love playing versus mode together – and trust me, it can get pretty competitive. The girls also really enjoy sandbox mode. This game truly is fun for all ages!


Use your imagination and go head-to-head in the ultimate multiplayer showdown! Enjoy a party-style Scribblenauts experience, conjuring from over 35,000 objects from the vast Scribblenauts dictionary to outsmart your opponent in over 25 mini-games!

  • Showdown Mode – Up to four players compete against each other in “Wordy” mini-games, which challenge players to outsmart their opponents using words from the game’s vast dictionary, and “Speedy” mini-games, which pit players to race against the clock to finish.
  • Versus Mode – Two players go head to head in more than 25 different timed mini-games: a madcap medieval duel, a ferocious tower battle, a fast-paced eating contest and other fun challenges involving items they conjure up.
  • Sandbox Mode – The series’ cherished creative playground, where two players can conjure nearly any object imaginable from an expansive dictionary of 35,000 words – and watch them interact in hilarious and unexpected ways!

Scribblenauts Showdown is available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Personally, we own it for the Switch, but I think it would be great on any of these consoles!
