For mid 20's and up, the game just seems pretty immiture and unentertaining.
Ashley
I will say, if you're shy or don't like making odd requests or messing with someone a little bit, this probably isn't the game for you.

Pro: The game takes no time to set up and the instructions are quick and easy to learn.

This game is as good as your contact list on your cell phone. In order to win this game, you need to call people on your cell phone and ask them odd questions like, "How much money would I need to pay you to give up the internet for a month" or get a contact to tell you 2 ways in which they are like a blender.

If you are on a pre-paid cellular plan or a plan with limited minutes, then this is not the game for you.

Phone Frenzy is a party / social game published by Buffalo Games with the tagline is "It's not what you know, It's who you know!" which is dead on as you rely on your contacts to complete the challenges.

Teams are divided into two groups that compete against each other by trying to complete challenges from one of 4 categories of challenge cards. The are 110 cards which will keep you busy for a while. If Buffalo Games decides to, there is the ability to add more cards if need be in an expansion much like the party game Apples-to-Apples. The challenges and cards are broken up into four categories and a basic run down of their descriptions are as follows:

- Who Knows (Yellow): The only category where you can say its a game and its your basic time-based trivia question. Only the player who drew the card participates.

- Buzz (Red): This card has the player drawing it (no-one else) try and get one of their contacts to complete the task on the card under the time limit with-out giving away its part of a game and straight up asking them to do the task.

- Showdown (Blue): One player from each team participates by calling a contact off their predetermined list trying to get the friend to offer to do what is listed on the card for the cheapest amount, lowest amount wins the card for their team. This was the second funniest while playing with my friends who really got into this category trying to bargain on the phone.

- Team Challenge (Green): Everyone playing texts anyone you can think of asking what is requested on the card, the first to get an appropriate / correct response wins the card for their team. If you have quick-draw friends this ends up being the most fun nail-biting category in my opinion.

First of all, I think this game would be a BLAST for people in high school or people who just do a lot of texting. I would've loved it when I was in high school. The only real problem we had was that hardly any of our contacts were actually available. Some were working, some were busy... so we only had two people between the two of us that we could call and text. We had to check with them beforehand to make sure they were available, and because of this, they knew what we were doing and why we kept calling and texting them. The buzz cards were really the only problems though, because most of them make you "convince" someone to lend you something or to do something for you, so since our contacts knew we were playing a game with them, these cards weren't very much fun to play. BUT i do think this game is worth buying if you have more people that you can play with! the most fun we had was with this one card where my boyfriend ended up calling my mom and he had to get her to make an elephant sound. that was so funny :) and i think we would've had a lot more fun if we played with more people. also, i think the gameboard itself could use some work. it fits together like a puzzlepiece, but i think if it was just a folded gameboard, its durability would be better.

but i HIGHLY recommend this game to people who have a lot of texting buddies. it could be so much fun :)

Phone Frenzy is a hilarious game that you and your friends can have a really good (and fun) time playing. The point of the game is to call or text friends on your contact list and get them to do some of the most ridiculous things you've ever had someone try to do.

I originally saw this at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair, and I'll admit I was hesitant at first. But once you read over the rules, it's not as difficult or strange as it sounds. The main objective is to have you or your team win at least one of all 4 categories, and then complete the final Phone Frenzy challenge! Instead of utilizing your entire contact list, you select a handful of people from your contacts that you think will actually answer the phone when you call. This way you can avoid having to call your boss, co-workers, parents, or grandparents with hilarious requests. Although, you can use these people if you really want! At times you will have the option to choose anyone on your contact list, but again, you have the choice of who you message.

When I played with all of my friends, we had a really good time! Although some awkward conversations did ensue. I will say, if you're shy or don't like making odd requests or messing with someone a little bit, this probably isn't the game for you. However, the overall the game makes for a good night. There were a couple of times where we made some phone calls and some people weren't willing to participate, or your friends got mad, which made the rule of "You Can't Tell Them You're Playing A Game" a little difficult. Also, the speaker phone challenges are ridiculously funny, but it's difficult to do when you really get someone going and the rest of the room starts laughing.
