A few days ago, I did another review of a game by the same company, Northstar Games. Apparently, they major in great family games! Say Anything Family Edition is a fun family game that reminded us a little of Apples to Apples, and a little of Wits & Wagers, which I reviewed here.
The great thing about Say Anything Family Edition is that you can go from opening the box the first time to playing a game in just a couple minutes. It is very easy to learn how to play this game for ages 8+ and 3-6 players. They provide everything that you need, including dry erase markers for each player, a dry erase board to write your answers on, dry erase scoreboard to use over and over, as well as the tokens and Select-o-matic 6000 which is used by the "judge" to select their favorite answer. The Family Edition of Say Anything is brand new this year and provides a wonderful opportunity for your family to have a blast being silly or serious by guessing what the "judge" would say.
Here is how play goes:
Each player has a dry erase board, marker and 2 tokens.
The judge chooses a card and then selects one of 3 questions from the card to ask to everyone.
Players write their answer on their board secretly, then all show their answers.
The judge secretly selects the most correct answer on the Select-o-matic 6000.
Players then place their tokens on the answer(s) they think the judge will select.
The judge reveals his/her selection and points are awarded for those who selected the correct answer, wrote the correct answer, and even the judge can earn points.
Then the next person gets a turn as judge and play continues.
If your family likes to be silly, the answers can be quite a hoot to read! You never know what someone will come up with. The game is played very quickly, so you can fit several games in even if you don't have a lot of time. We had a lot of fun playing this game, although I have to admit that Wits & Wagers was favored in our house.
It is such a pleasure to learn about games for the family that are fun, wholesome and bring the whole family together for a time away from "technology-drive" things like computers, TV, video games, etc. Northstar Games has created some great games and I am so very pleased to have the privilege of reviewing their products!
I found Say Anything Family Edition over at Amazon.com, so go check it out! Regularly priced at $19.99, it is apparently on sale right now for $13.85!! It would be a great family game for the holidays, which are coming up very quickly now!
I received this product for free in return for an honest review. I have not received financial reimbursement for my review of Say Anything Family Edition by Northstar Games.
