Good concept, poor execution
on January 13, 2012
The idea is fun. I played with 6 people.
When you land on different spots on the board they'll have special 1 on 1 challenges. We eventually just ignored those, because there were too many of them and it's more fun when everyone gets to play.
The board itself is kind of daftly designed, because it's difficult to see the game pieces or the direction you're supposed to go.
The gameplay has a very odd kink where it's easy to cheat (if anyone were so inclined). None of my friends are going to cheat, but it's a poorly designed game where it's so easy to.
When we finished the regular game, we just ignored the board and rules and just started reading off the cards and singing songs. That was more fun.
Also, it was surprisingly difficult. We could rarely get more than 3 or 4 songs for a word.
Then sometimes you get a category instead of a word, and it's so broad that you can simply go forever.
Poorly designed game, but you can make it fun with your own rules. The rules for the final round are fun to just use on repeat.
The good thing about this game is that it's all inclusive and people can participate to whatever degree they like. You can just sit and watch if you want, and still feel like you're part of the game.
Fun concept, but poor game design.
