North Star Games has family and party games that help bring everyone together!
Their game, Say Anything Family Edition, invites you to think about how you and your family would answer various questions. You have the chance to be witty, cunning or serious as you play with your family members. Say Anything Family Edition is geared toward ages 8 and up and for 3-6 players.
The game itself contains 60 question cards with a total of 360 topics, 6 dry erase pens and 6 dry erase boards, 1 SELECT-O-MATIC-6000, 12 player tokens, 1 dry erase score board, and 1 full color rules booklet.
Basically, Say Anything is a simple game to play but lots of fun:
1. Each player at his/her turn asks a question from the currently drawn card.
2. Everyone else writes their answer on their dry erase board and turns it face-up on the playing area.
3. The current player secretly chooses their favorite answer given by the other players.
4. The other players choose which of the answers given might be the one the current player guessed and place their tokens on the appropriate
5. Each player gets points based on who selected the current answer and according to the scoring rules.
North Star Games suggests that it takes approximately 2 minutes to learn the game and about 30 minutes to play.
TOS Crew members were given the Say Anything Family Edition to review just as the holidays are fast approaching!
Say Anything Family Edition game retails for $19.99 and can be purchased from places like Amazon.com, Target and other retail stores.

Thanks for the review! We are excited to see what the ToS crew thinks of this game.
One small detail to point out. The Select-o-Matic 6000 is a “select”-o-matic, not a “spin”-o-matic. It is used by the judge to ‘select’ their favorite answer. No spinning required.
This misunderstanding comes up more than you would think! I guess people just like spinners!

Did you play the game? I’d love to hear what your family thought of it.

I thought I had linked up last Wednesday. I guess I didn’t check carefully enough. Sorry! http://briana-icantdecide.blogspot.com/2011/10/tos-crew-review-wits-and-wagers-family.html

Ok I have egg on my face. That is what I get letting my husband read the directions to me and telling me wrong about what the Select-o-Matic 6000 was used for. Then it got stuck in my head wrong when I finalized my blog post. Removing all that egg on my face now. Now that use of it makes sense. We originally had the player who was selecting their favorite answer write it on their board before everyone voted. The spinner way really did not make sense to me so I think its intended use is way more awesome! Thanks for pointing out my confusion! 🙂 Our family adores each North Star game we own. My kids request those the most on our game nights.
Late linking up – SO sorry!
We *loved* it!
