Say Anything Family Fun


What hilarious things will YOUR family say?

It seems like I am constantly reminding my kids to "Think first, Speak later."  Most of the time we have to use our internal edit buttons to make sure that what we think doesn't come blurting out.  Can you relate?  How refreshing it can be when we can literally SAY ANYTHING!  We have had the MOST fun sitting around our dining room table playing a new game entitled just that -- Say Anything Family (a family-friendly edition of the Say Anything game).


What has quickly become one of our VERY FAVORITE family night games, Say Anything Family can be easily explained and set up.  In just a few minutes, you can have your family laughing out loud at each  other -- in a good way! My son fancies himself quite the comedian these days so this was RIGHT UP HIS ALLEY. He spends the most time coming up with "just the right answer" to every question and has us in stitches every time we play!

So, HOW do you play?  Each player receives a mini dry erase board and a dry erase marker.  Starting with the youngest player, each person takes a turn as JUDGE and asks one of the 360 available questions on the question cards.  The other players each answer the question and place their answer boards face up on the table.

If two or more players write down the same answer, the player who placed their board on the table first gets to keep it.  Others must think of another answer.  (I guess some of us think a lot alike because there were several times the race was on to put the board down first!) That's when the fun really begins.

When we laid our answers down for all to see, the laughter started immediately.  We got quite a kick out of seeing how each family member answered the all-important questions like:

  • Which superhero outfit looks the most uncomfortable?

  • What did I dream about last night?

  • Which book character would I most want to hang out with?

Once all of the answers have been revealed, each player takes two color-coded tokens and makes a guess about which answer they think the Judge will choose as the BEST.  (You can even split your vote if you're indecisive!) The Judge then uses the Select-O-Matic 6000 (okay, so it's really just a colored spinner that matches each player's tokens -- but don't tell my kids!) and marks whose answer is the best.  The person who wrote that answer gets one point and anyone who placed their tokens on that answer gets a point for each token -- with the maximum points possible being three per person per round.

Points are added up each round and once every player has had the opportunity to be the Judge and ask two questions, the game is officially over . . . BUT don't be surprised if your family wants to start A-L-L over and play again.  Say Anything Family is a GREAT way to spend time together.  We laughed and had such a fun time getting to know lots of silly little things about each other.

Designed for 3 – 6 players ages 8 and up, Say Anything Family is sold online and will soon be available in major retail stores like Target for $19.99.  Order yours today so you can find out just how funny your family can be when they are allowed to SAY ANYTHING!
