Say Anything Family is the newest family-friendly game from award-winning Northstar Games.
For 3 to 6 players, Say Anything Family is for ages 8 through adult. Say Anything Family includes 360 thought-provoking questions on 60 game cards, 6 dry erase answer boards and pens, a dry erase score board, 12 player tokens, a full-color set of rules, and a "Select-O-Matic 6000'.

Like Wits & Wagers, Say Anything claims it takes a mere two minutes to learn how to play. In each round, one player is the judge, while other players answer the question for the judge. At the start of the round, the judge reads a question from the game card. The other players write their answers to the question on their game boards, and then place them in the middle of the table.
The judge reads the answers, then, while keeping his/her choice secret, turns the Select-O-Matic 6000 to his/her favorite, and places the Select-O-Matic 6000 face-down on the table.
The players in the round then place their player tokens on the answer.
Now, the Select-O-Matic 6000 is flipped over and the judge's choice revealed. The person who wrote the selected answer receives 1 point; players receive 1 point for each of their tokens that are on the winning answer; the judge receives points for each token placed on the winning answer. The Select-O-Matic and the job of judge then moves to the left for another round. Play continues until all players have asked two questions.  Typical game lasts 30 minutes but can be longer or shorter depending on the players.


As you all know I am a huge fan of board games and Family Game Night.  Now this game is geared a little older for my two daughters so I cannot  wait for a few years so we can all play it together.  I plan to bring this game out for the Holidays to play with the adults.  Now the game is fun for older kids and adults alike.  Just member they will need to write answers so they need to be old enough for that.  One of the things I loved most about this game was the fact that you can play it several times and have a different outcome every time.  So this game is not one of those that gets old or anything.  I also loved to find what answers people would come up with for the questions.  This game will have you scratching your head at some of the answers and rolling on the floor at others if your family is like mine.

This game is perfect for game lovers and would make a great Holiday gift for them.  Also it would be perfect to bring out when the whole family is together for the Holidays like I plan to.  You can purchase the game at retailers where games are aold and online at for $13.85.
Also right now Northstar Games has a contest going on on their Facebook page for an iPad til the week of November 14.  So hurry over there now and "like" their page to enter.  Also you get to stay up to date on their products and promotions.  You can also follow them on twitter to stay up to date.

So rush out and grab a copy of Say Anything Family Edition and see what funny answers you get to the questions in the game.  It will make a great gift or addition to the holiday festivities.
