Review And Giveaway: "You've Been Sentenced " ENDED

I recently received some games from McNeill Designs. Which I was very excited about reviewing and offering one lucky reader a chance to win a set in a giveaway.

I was excited about this, because my family and I really love to play games. For the past 3 days we have been testing out these games. The games we got are "You've been Sentenced," including 5 add on decks:

Reader’s Digest National Word Power Challenge Deck
Sports Highlights Deck
Sci-fi and Fantasy
Pop Culture Deck
Gourmet Cuisine Deck

Also included was a fun card game called "Twisted Fish." and the "Wheel of Chore-ture.

Information about You've been sentenced:

The latest in the evolution of games, “You've been Sentenced!” is the first game in history to really turn making sentences into a very funny, playable, and challenging game. Using a unique word deck of pentagon shaped cards containing conjugations of funny words, famous names from throughout history, familiar places, and wild cards, players have to make grammatically correct and justifiable sentences. The real fun begins when players have to read their sentences out loud and explain what they mean to the rest of players. They form the jury and vote thumbs up or down on whether the sentence and justification stand and the points are scored. 540 cards with over 2,500 words insure billions of possible sentences so the game is never repetitive and has unlimited re-play value.

My take on the games:

We first played "Twisted Fish." Here's a picture of my daughter playing it. This is a fun game similar to Go Fish, but with a twist. She wants to play this again soon.

Twisted Fish

Last night my son, daughter and I all played "You've been sentenced." Here's my son getting his cards ready to play:

You've been sentenced

The kids really enjoyed playing this. And were really getting a kick out of making some very silly sentences. Any game that is fun and includes learning is great in my book. The kids liked it so much, they wanted to play again and weren't concerned about watching TV, playing video games, or anything else last night. So to me that says it all!

And don't forget the Wheel of Chore-ture. My daughter has been spinning this and has even been doing some chores using this.
