We are a game playing family.  We play together, we invite friends, and when asked, we take our games when we visit others.  The boys especially love laughing games, so  Say Anything Family has been a perfect fit for us.

Modeled after the company's popular, award winning, Say Anything party game, it has all the fun, and nothing to censor.

In these pictures, we are playing the game with my sister and niece.

Say Anything Family Edition

This was the first time we played.  We opened the box and found:

  • 6 dry erase boards in an array of colors
  • 6 dry erase markers
  • 12 tokens in colors to match the boards
  • a score board
  • a select-o-matic 6000
  • a packet of 60 question cars (which contain 360 topics in all)
  • a large, sturdy, full color instruction booklet.
Everyone got  card, a marker, two colored tokens, and a napkin. (napkins are not included)  Here is how the game is played.

To begin, a player pulls a card from the deck and chooses one topic to read aloud.  Each card begins with the words, In my opinion... and then lists 3 questions.  Some examples are; What is the best dessert? What is the coolest car? or What would be the weirdest job?

After the question has been read, the other players write their answers on the cards and place them in the middle of the table.

The person who asked the question now discretely moves the arrow on the Select-o-matic 6000 to the color that matches the card with their favorite answer, and then places it face down on the table, so that nobody can see.

This is the cue for the rest of the players to look at the cards and decide which answer they like best.  Each player has two tokens to vote with.  These tokens are placed directly on the cards, and they can go on any answer.  (it doesn't have to be their own)

Once all of the tokens are placed, the select-o-matic 6000 is turned right side up to reveal the favored answer, and points are awarded.

It's always fun to play as a family.  Some of us are silly, others are serious, but we all laugh and have a lot of fun.

After each player has had a chance to read two questions, the player with the most points, wins.

Say Anything Family is definitely a hit.  The rules are easy, the questions are mostly funny, and it moves quickly.  It is also great when kids and adults can play together and have fun.  I was not surprised by how much we loved this.  We had the opportunity to review NorthStar Games Wits and Wagers Family last year.  It was wildly popular and we still enjoy it.

The Say Anything Family game is available for purchase in stores, or from Amazon.

I was given this game to use with my family in exchange for my honest opinion expressed in this blog post.  I was not paid to write this post.
