Say Anything

Photobucket
Are you looking for a game that the entire family can play or one that the answers may never be the same. Then Say Anything Family would be a game for you. I have been enjoying 2 games from North Star Games with my family, Say Anything Family and Wits & Wagers Family.

Say Anything Family is recommended for 3-6 players ages 8+ with game time lasting about 30 minutes. It comes with a score board, 6 dry erase answer boards plus marker, question cards, Meeple coins, and the SELECT-O-MATIC 6000.

All the players get their dry erase board with two tokens of the same color. The SELECT-O-MATIC 6000 is a dial with each board color space on it and the judge gets to hold this. A question is read and everyone will answer remembering that the judge will select the one he likes best. The judge will then turn the SELECT-O-MATIC 6000 dial to the color he chooses then the rest of the players can place their coins on the one they think the judge has chosen. Both Meeple coins can be placed on the same answer or 2 different ones. The judge will then reveal his answer by turning over the SELECT-O-MATIC 6000 to show the players what color answer he chose. Points are awarded to the player who wrote the correct answer, one point is awarded for each coin that is placed on the correct answer and the judge receives a point for each coin that is on the answer he chose. There is a maximum number of 3 points per question.




We really enjoyed this game and it helps if you really know the people you are playing with because you kinda know what answer they would pick. For example one question asks, "Which store is the most fun to shop in?" Well it would depend on who the judge is to what answer you would write down. I played this with my daughter-in-law and all three of my girls ages 6, 9, and 10. There were a few questions that we had to explain to my 6 year old but for the most part she had fun playing also. While the girls waited for everyone to answer the question they loved coloring the Meeple that is on the back of their answer board.

North Star Games brings friends and families together with fun, innovative party and family games.

Meet the designers of North Star Games:

Dominic Crapuchettes
Dominic is the Founder & Co-President of North Star Games. In 8th grade, Dominic earned the much-coveted “bad boy” title when his first game, Kabloogi, was banned from school because kids were playing it during first period. It is because of his great passion for games that he stopped captaining a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska to start the most innovative board game company on the planet.

Satish Pillalamarri
Satish Pillalamarri is the Co-President of North Star Games. He was a cog in the wheel at a New York hedge fund when a life-changing event took place: he became a contestant on Jeopardy! This experience prepared him for his position as the Chief Question Writing Officer at North Star Games. Inspired by his love for having fun, Satish’s mission is to bring innovative games to every man, woman and child (and the occasional monkey).

Luke Warren
Armed with a Masters degree in Philosophy and a compelling argument, Luke Warren dedicated over a decade of his life to grassroots politics. Then he decided board games were more fun and joined North Star Games. By the way... if you are wondering if anyone has said to him, “Luke, I am your father”, yes, yes they have. Many times - So just stop it!

Say Anything Family can be purchased online at retailers such as Amazon or check your area for a retailer near you. This game retails for $19.95 but right now it is $13.85 on Amazon.

As a member of the TOS Crew I received Say Anything Family free of charge to use with my family in exchange for my review.
