We love to play games together as a family. Game time makes for lots of great family memories. As part of the Homeschool Crew, I was sent the game Say Anything Family. Say Anything Family is made by the same company that made the Wits and Wagers game I recently reviewed.
From the game insert:
Say Anything is a light-hearted game about what you and your loved ones think. It gives you the chance to settle questions that have been hotly debated for centuries. For instance, “What magical power would be the coolest to have?” or “What would be the most fun thing to throw off a tall building?” So dig deep into your heart or just come up with something witty – this is your chance to Say Anything!
Say Anything Family is for 3-6 players, ages 8 and up.
Say Anything Family is a very easy game to learn. There are 360 questions so you can play numerous games without repeating questions. And there are no right answers to the questions! That makes it a great family game. It’s not like a trivia game, where you have to have the right answer. All players are on a level playing field, no matter their age. Yes, little kids can beat adults! Maybe that’s why my kids loved this game……
One player asks a question, the other players write down an answer, then everyone turns their answer cards face up. The player that asked the question picks his favorite answer. The other players can all try to convince him to pick their answer, “I wrote you cookies, you know how you like cookies!” “You know how much you love internet access, choose my answer!!” This is fun and can get loud at times. Or maybe that was just my family.
He then uses the Select-O-Matic 6000 to record his answer. It looks like a game spinner, and the player turns the arm to the color of the answer board that he likes best. Make sure you don’t let the other players see the answer you chose! (I won’t tell you have many times I said Select-O-Matic while playing, just because it’s fun to say.)
Now the players put their Meeples, game markers, on the answer they think the question asker will chose. Points are awarded to the person who wrote the chosen answer, as well as the players who put Meeples on the chosen answer. The game is over when everyone has asked 2 questions. The player with the most points wins. In the case of a tie, all tying players win! Another reason it’s such a great family game.
Our family loved Say Anything Family. If you have more than 6 players or players under 8, I think it would be fun to play as teams, also.
Say Anything Family retails for &19.99 and is available online and in stores. Visit the Northstar Games website to find a store near you.
