Say Anything Game Review

Heather —  October 27, 2011

 

Want a new family game that gets people laughing and is hard to cheat or be aggressive about? Do you just want to see people have fun without strategizing for ages?

Then get Say Anything Family this Holiday Season.

Seriously. This family and party game is hilarious and easy to play. In a spin on giving your opinion, in this game, you must talk, write and vote on opinions and guess how others will vote.

The game is good for multi-age play and for lots of players. We played a few times with just three players, but, the more the better. If you have more than six, you can make teams.

Pieces are all included and pack back up nicely. Kids seem to love the little dry erase boards and pens. I liked the bright colors and modern look to all the pieces. The cards cracked me up!

Say Anything Family Edition game retails for $19.99.

I received Say Anything Family Edition through the TOS Crew for review purposes. I have given my honest opinion.

Cranium Brain Breaks Giveaway!

Heather —  October 5, 2011

Oh, this game suits me perfectly! Years ago, we got our first Cranium Game. The kids have always enjoyed these…but this new one is fun for all of us (even Mom, the multi-tasker).

Cranium is known for super creative game play and this version is no different. The difference?

 You only need a minute to play Cranium Brain Breaks! Or, play for an hour…your choice. But you have to go quickly either way.

There are 200 mini-games, outlined on little cards with super easy directions. Now, just because the directions are easy, doesn’t mean all the games are. But, many had us laughing, rhyming and having a blast. Much of the content is educational as well—because you need to think and create as you play.

The game includes classic cranium categories:

  • Creative Cat
  • Word Worm
  • Star Performer
  • Data Head

Seriously, this family game is adorable.

What else did I love about this?

Well, the players work together. Yeah for the no-fighting aspect as I have some super competitive kids—where DID that come from??

And the game is neatly packaged up in a permanent brain shaped case. And it stays neat. There are little spots for all the pieces. It is so nice when things work and do not get lost!

My original thought when I got to review this was that it would make a great Christmas gift (and it would) but now that I’ve seen the case, well it would also be a great non-sugar treat for Halloween! Ha. Love it.

Even little ones can play

  • Players: 2 or more (although my daughter likes to complete activities all by herself against the clock)
  • Ages: 8 and up
  • Approximate Price: $14.99
  • Available at mass merchandise retailers nationwide, or online at Hasbro Toy Shop.
