This has been a fun review year for our family, with so many games to review. As I’ve said before, we LOVE games, so we were excited to receive another game from Northstar Games to try out, Say Anything, Family Edition.
Say Anything, Family Edition is for ages 8 and up and can be played with 3-6 players. Since my older kids are away at college right now, leaving only 2 of us living here full time, we had to wait a bit before we could get a group together to play Say Anything. Finally, after about two weeks of the game sitting on the kitchen counter taunting us , we gathered my parents, John Michael, Emily, and me together to try it out. The next week, Katie was home for fall break, so she and my father-in-law joined us for a game.
The rules are quite simple—One player serves as a judge for each round. He draws a card, reads one of the 3 questions from the card, and the other players answer the question on their mini white boards. The object is to choose an answer that the judge will consider the best. After all players have answered, they may use their tokens to bet which answer they think is correct. After the judge picks an answer, points are awarded for the winning response and for correct bets.
We had a great time playing, “Say Anything!” It was fun to guess which answer the “judge” would choose and we had fun picking imaginative or goofy answers that would attract the judge’s attention! I think this is a game that will get even better with time as we learn to be more creative with our answers. Questions like “What would be the weirdest secret to learn about my mother?” and “What would be the worst job ever?” kept us laughing.
5/5 stars for this fun family game!
I received this game free for review purposes as a member of the TOS Crew. Please visit the Crew Blog to read more reviews!
