Say Anything Family Edition- Northstar Games Review

Here is a review of another Northstar Games game-  this one is Say Anything Family Edition.  This game is for 3-6 players, ages 8 and up. We had 5 players playing at one time and they had a BLAST!!  The directions are easy to follow, the age suggestion is there because the player needs to be able to spell out their answer on a wipe off card.

Here’s how the game is played: One person is the judge for this turn.  They read one questions, each of the other players quickly write down the answer that pops into their head and sets their card down face up.  The judge then picks his/her favorite answer and marks it on the “Select-o-matic 6000” (a cardboard wheel with the players colors) and sets it on the table face down.  The players then try to guess which answer the judge picked.  They use the 2 tokens in their board color to “bet” on which one the judge picked on the “Select-o-matic 6000”.  After everyone places their “bets”, the judge turns over the “Select-o-matic 6000” to reveal their favorite.  The judge receives points for how many tokens are on that card and each player with tokens on the winning card gets points too.  The points are marked on the wipe off score board for each round.

This game makes you think about how the judge is thinking, you will earn more points by trying to think like them.  Say Anything Family Edition reinforces math skills when scoring the round and adding each round for the total score.  You could even work on spelling, since each word or phrase is written down.

The game comes with – 60 question cards which contain 360 topic questions, 6 dry erase answer boards, 6 black dry erase pens, 1 select-o-matic 6000, 12 player tokens, 1 dry erase score board, and 1 set of full color instructions.

This game is in a great, study box with game details on the “spine” just like their game Wit and Wagers Family Edition. You can see my review for this here.  We have been impressed with both games from this company.

Say Anything Family Edition retails for $19.95 and  can be purchased from retailers such as (currently $13.85), Target and other retailers.
