not as fun as it sounds
on January 10, 2012
bought this game on a black friday whim based on all the good reviews. however, it wasn't as fun as the high reviewers say. we found that some of the word phrases just don't sound like the intended phrase, while others are blatantly obvious. also, several of the word phrases are celebrities that our kids had never heard of. the game allows for a 'coach' to help the reader know what syllable to stress--this was fairly necessary, or some of the word puzzles would never have been solved. We also found that the timer is REALLY loud and sort of annoying--the rattling clicks made it a little hard to hear the phrases, and we finally played without it. Overall, it's ok. Sort of fun when the word puzzles are written well, but not really the rollicking good time I expected from the 5 star reviews.
