Product Description

From the Manufacturer

To paraphrase the great John Lennon, “a game is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” Such is the case with Sounds Like a Plan, the latest party game from the creative minds that also brought us the million-selling In a Pickle. As so many inventors tell us, the best ideas come not when they are focused on trying to make something, but when they are busy doing other things. So if you want our advice about how to make the next great game, don’t plan for it and it will certainly happen. What's the best plan for climbing Mt. Everest? How about the worst plan for making a million bucks? Find out in this party game that's all about giving outrageous advice. Select a card containing a piece of advice that best fits the judge's chosen activity. Score points if the judge takes your advice, but keep in mind that plans change with the roll of a die… You might have to give out bad advice, your grandma's advice, or even advice from a psychic. Take our advice and play today.

I opened up this game and played it over Thanksgiving weekend. It was a smash hit. There are three "to do" lists on each card. The chooser (or judge) picks. Here's a sample:

How to make a million
How to fix a flat tire
How to find the perfect mate

The chooser then rolls the special die, which will land on:

Best - give the best advice
Worst - give the worst advice
Kid - give advice a kid might say
Grandma - give advice your Grandma might say
Psychic - the chooser secretly selects one of the other options and everyone turns in a card without knowing. (the chooser might want to write his/her choice on paper, to make things legit)
Wild - the chooser selects an option and tells the others what it is

The chooser then says which of the three lists he/she has chosen, except if the Psychic is rolled. Read above.

Based on this, everyone hands in one of their five advice cards, hoping the chooser selects theirs. Players should take an advice card after each turn to ensure they have five cards. The chooser selects up to five cards. The player whose advice the chooser likes best will move five spaces on the board. Others will move one space less, from four to one space(s). Note that up to eight can play, so if there are more than five choices, some players will not advance on a turn. When you're the chooser, you don't move. The first one to reach the finish wins.

A fun game with simple rules, and everyone is involved on each turn, so there's no sitting around and waiting. Good game for a large group, and you'll have a few laughs along the way from some of the advice players hand in.

Our family loves the game Apples to Apples where one person serves as a "judge" for each definition so when I read that this game might be just as much fun, I had to buy it. We have played with family members ranging in age from 12 to 49 and had a blast each time. Even our teenagers love it. It is great fun to try to determine what each individual "judge" might choose and I think it's great for kids to try to learn to understand other perspectives--hilarious as well!

We played this game a couple of times during a family reunion vacation. We had players from age 10 to adult. Some of the topics were unfamiliar to the younger players but they still had fun. Most liked it better than Apples to Apples.

Our family of four LOVES this game. My 10 year old requests it regularly, and her 12 year old sister also gets into it. From an educational standpoint, it encourages kids to use a thinking process, "what would a 5 year old's advice be?" and "what would my grandma suggest?", as well as best and worst. It gets them to think a bit outside of themselves, which is healthy :) We always have good laughs too, as some of the suggestions are hilarious. I highly recommend this for both mixed groups of kids or adults.

We have a big family and this game suited all from age 10 to 70 (and probably beyond). We changed the kid dice roll to be "anyone at the table" advice because there weren't enough kid-like sayings in the deck. Was nice that you can play many many times and card possibilities are endless. Great game!

I received this game for Christmas and so far have played it once with a large family group. Being familiar with Apples to Apples, everyone easily understood the gameplay. As a group, we haven't laughed as much as we did at a game in a long time. I had the most fun giving the "worst" advice for a Plan.

Recommend playing with at least 6 people; we had 10 and it was a longer game, but nobody complained.

I rarely comment on items I've purchased or had given to me, but this is a great exception. With more than 4 players, this game caused so much laughter that it brought everyone at the table to tears at one point or another. Having a wide range of players with different backgrounds (different ages, boys and girls, etc) makes it all the more interesting and entertaining. Really good game to understand others' mindsets.

Its a fun game to play and provides plenty of laughs. My family are Apples to Apples fans, and this is a refreshing alternative! Alot of fun to play with the entire range of ages. Simple rules and even simpler to make up your own to shorten or extend the game. Love it!
