Starting the new year can be great, its a fresh new way to start setting new goals, making new friendships, and best of all, starting a new family tradition!! And what I mean by starting a new family tradition is to start a family game night every week. This is a great way to keep communication with family members alive in your home and helps keep your home stress free. Besides all that, it's super fun!!! I found the perfect game to help kick start your game collection this year, let me introduce you to "You've Been Sentenced!" by McNeill Designs!!
You've Been Sentenced!, is a seriously hilarious Award-winning game, that will give you a LAUGH OUT LOUD good time! It comes in two different Main Sets, You've Been Sentenced! and You've Been Sentenced! Country Music Edition, along with 6 awesome Add on Packs that can be added to bring new words for a more exciting and challenging game!
Each You've Been Sentenced! Game includes, 540 - 5 sided card word deck, a score sheet, sand timer, pencil and rules sheet. It is great for 3 to 10 players and for ages 8 and up. Each game lasts about 30 to 45 minutes. The Add on Decks, includes 80 - 5 sided new word cards, that consist of the title of the Add on Pack, for example, The Gourmet Cuisine Add on Deck contains Famous Chefs, Food icons, ingredients and other title related words.
I was very excited to try out You've Been Sentenced!. I have always loved games growing up, you could always find my sister and me in the kitchen playing a board or card game. I think the more my sister and I got older, the more competitive we got, so playing games with her is a lot of fun and very interesting!! On Christmas Eve, we decided to make an adult family night and play You've Been Sentenced! We started by reading the directions, which was very easy to understand and also came with other fun ways to play. Then we shuffled all the cards and placed them back into the deck holder. That's when the Fun began!!! We all drew 10, 5 sided cards and placed then upside down in front of us, then we turned them up and started to make a sentence (Building a Clear Case). The first person who finished got to flip the timer on the rest, making it a challenge to come up with a legit sentence before the time runs out. (who ever flipped the timer is not allowed to alter their sentence). Court is in session once the timer runs out, this is when we read our sentences out load to be judged by the Jury (other players), if it is grammatically correct the player gets his or her points, how ever if it doesn't make sense, another player may issue an 'Objection". Then the player will be able to defend their sentence, and explain how it makes sense, this is the Sentence Justification stage. Just like a real Jury, votes are counted and the verdict will be either an "Overruled" meaning the won and will get their points, or "Sustained" meaning the player was defeated by the jury and will not be award points. Play then proceeds to the next player.
Sentences may be as short as two words or as long as all 10 cards. Points are based on the words used in a sentence, and wild cards or worth 0 points, there is also bonus points awarded for a single player and can receive up to a 20 point bonus, 10 for the first person to flip the timer, and an extra 10 points of you use all 10 cards in a sentence!
Overall, this is an AWESOME game and I LOVED it!! We had so much FUN, and gave us some great laughs! The best part was calling out my sister to the jury even though her sentences made sense, I just loved hearing how she had to justify the meaning, not all laughs though, after a while she started to do it back to me lol!! We ended up playing for hours and hours, laughing and having a great time, we did play both You've Been Sentenced! and You've Been Sentenced! Country Music Edition, each fun and challenging!! I loved how each set of cards, had the same color face as the rest in that series, making mixing the cards fun, and easy to separate after game play. One day soon, we are going mix up all the cards from all the games and add on decks for a super all night long game night!!!
This game can also be educational and broad your vocabulary!! I would totally recommend this LOL Fun game!! P.S. The shipping box is super funny, I am not going to give it away, so you will just have to either win it or buy it :)!!!
