Try It Tuesday

I'm in a giveaway mood.  I think I'll have another one that I'm going to try every month - Try It Tuesday Giveaway.

For my very first Try It Tuesday I was lucky enough to be chosen through Biz2Blogger to test out a fun  award-winning word game called You've been Sentenced!  It's from McNeil Designs for Brighter Minds and can be played by 3-10 players ages 8 and up.

About You've been Sentenced!
You've been Sentenced! is an innovative language game which utilizes pentagon-shaped cards containing conjugations of funny words, famous names, and familiar places.  With a hand of 10 cards, players build sentences, challenging their ingenuity while trying to score the most points per round, constructing a grammatically correct and justifiable sentence.

So my kids aren't over the age of 7 yet but my oldest loves to read and I thought this would be a great learning game for him.  Here's what I got in the mail:

Not only did I get the game but I also received 5 add-on decks.

The cards are pentagon shaped and each side has a variation of a word - the original word, a plural version, a verb version, a past tense, whatever.  And each are associated with points.  My husband, my son and I played the game one night, not to its proper instructions, we wanted the 7 year old to get the idea of making sentences first before trying to defend them, and we all had a blast.  My son was in fits of giggles making up sentences with the cards he was given.  I've also found that I can take the add-on decks to my kids' sporting events and we can play while we hang out and wait for the duration of the game.

I highly recommend this game.  It's fun and educational!

But that's not all.  I also received another game from McNeil - Twisted Fish.

Twisted Fish is a similar game to Go Fish but has "13 unique, outrageously humorous fish characters in five different color suits that you must ask for specifically.  In addition there's 8 unique Zinger Wild Cards that all have a different wild function and makes the game FUN to the very last card every game!"

Twisted Fish is for ages 6 and up, but I've played it with my 6, 4 1/2, and 2 1/2 year olds, and can be played with 3-6 players.

Another fun game!  I've taken this to events and played it there too.  Great entertainment that keeps the kids occupied instead of the handheld ds systems everybody seems to have.  So if your kids like Go Fish, they'll love Twisted Fish!

Here's the giveaway:

McNeil Designs has been kind enough to provide the same You've been Sentenced! game along with the 5 add-on cards for one of my lucky readers!  They are also providing a Twisted Fish game for another lucky person.  So I'm giving two games away!

Would love to win the fish game! My 3 1/2 yr old is really into games right now. She'd enjoy this :)

My daughter has successfully played UNO since the age of 4, so we're always on the look out for new card games. You've been sentenced seems like a great one!
