Product Description

There are no dice. Teams can only advance by their quick wit and ability to think "outside the box." It's fast, fun and very addictive! With four different rounds and hundreds of categories, it's like playing four games in one...so it's never the same, as it changes each time you play. Here are some examples: Team Play - You have been chosen as the Captain of your team for this round. The category is: "Musical Groups and Rock Bands." The timer is set for 2 minutes, and the pressure is on! You must go, in order, A through Z, and name a group or band that begins with each letter of the alphabet. Your team may help you, but only by giving you clues. Your Captain is stuck on "H." You holler out, "What does an owl say?" ("Hoot") "What's the wooden peg you put your golf ball on?" ("Hootie and the Blowfish!") Volley Box - In this round, teams battle back and forth through the alphabet in a verbal hot potato! The category is: "Things you give or offer to others." The timer is placed away from view and is set for 1 minute. Again, going in order, A through Z, the first team could shout, "Alimony!" The other team might respond with, "Benefit of the doubt!" The first team says, "Condolences!" (or "Cup of sugar!" or "CPR!") The team that is stuck when the timer beeps loses the round. Just how far "outside the box" will you go to help your team win? To Each His Own - The category is picked and 4 letters are randomly chosen from the alphabet. Both teams secretly write down a response for each letter. Try not to match each other. If you're really good, you may just get the chance to "stump the Master!" Speed Round - You are the "Actor." You have picked a Speed Round card and the timer is set. You must go in order through the alphabet and get your team to say exactly what is on that card. Go ahead, jump around, sing, use props -- but you better not say any part of the words on the card. The timer is going! What are you waiting for?

This game is soooo much fun!
Susan L. Tanner
The only other criticism I have of the game is that the rules sheet really is not clearly enough written.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary game for review. I do not know the game's developers and only have brief contact with one of them in an Amazon Community where he asked for volunteer reviewers.

Outside the Box is a fun game to play, and there's no doubt about that. After having had my review copy for a few weeks, I finally had the opportunity to get together with a group of people to check it out. We were lucky to have a group, because it appears that the game is going to be more fun when there are more participants. Although you could play with two on a team, it would be a bit dry in that format in my opinion.

The game has four "mini-games". Each turn you play one of the mini-games depending on which space on the board your token resides on. Each mini-game is fun. The first time through a couple of them can take a bit of figuring to determine just how to go about playing them. However, once you've been through each of the mini-games once or twice you'll have a good grasp of them. The rules to two of them could have been made MUCH more clear, but you'll figure them out, and to be honest you only need to be acting in the general spirit of the rules if both teams are doing the same thing. This is not a game for the hard core. It's really a party game and the more fun the party, the more fun the game will be. It took our teams about two hours to play the game, and that included opening the various game components, feeling our way through the rules and learning how to play each mini-game. It might go faster if most of the players are up to speed before starting.

We had a group of seven, so we played with three on one team and four on the other. The imbalance of players had no effect on the game ... in fact the team with only three players won.

This review is from: Outside the Box - The NEW fast-thinking team and party game! (Toy)
Note: I received a copy of Outside the Box from Sugarman Games in exchange for an honest review.

I apologize in advance for the lack of dignity with which I will approach the review of the new party game "Outside the Box." I like to think that I stand for an underrepresented portion of the adult gaming market (or at least one that doesn't speak up enough). Namely, I believe any gaming function can be enhanced by the addition of liberal doses of free-flowing alcohol. The first step is admitting you have a problem! Don't get me wrong. I can sit down for an analytical war game or chess match, I can get violent with a video gaming console, and I can have a high-brow evening of cards. But when it comes to inviting a collection of people over in which we will attempt a communal game, you can bet it will lead to an evening of debauchery and next day deniability. Such is the case with my experience with "Outside the Box."

Let's be honest, any party game will succeed or fail based on the willingness of the participants to engage. I had friends who were smashing at raising the entertainment quotient of "Outside the Box" (myself included, I like to think) and those that were dreadful. That is not unique to this game, by any means, but there are different levels (or rounds) of the game and a certain sense of showmanship and/or a lack of inhibition truly is what elevates the actual gameplay.

Content: There aren't a lot of moving pieces in "Outside the Box," it is mainly a question challenge game and there are lots of cards, categories and answers provided.

This game is soooo much fun! Have played with many different people, lots of age ranges, and we all loved it! From my 8 year old niece, to my 90 year old mother, it was appropriate and applicable to all.

I have played this game twice. Here are my thoughts:
GOOD:
*We had a blast! Everyone was getting into the game and shouting answers. It was hilarious the things people came up with.
*Everyone was involved. No one was left out.
*Great family/party game! Can't wait for Thanksgiving-it is so coming with me to the folks house.
*A trivia type game that I felt somewhat smart (vs. the pursuit one that I feel like I am not as smart as a 2nd grader).
*Crazy categories - started laughing before I could even read it aloud-made the game more fun.
*Challenging! Made me think without making me feel stupid. Coming up with every answer from A to Z really does tax your brain but was easy to get creative with the answers (hence-thinking outside the box).
*We had so much fun, we didn't even care who won. Felt like it brought us closer somehow. Like we knew each other better.
*Like four games in one! Got my $ worth.
*I'm pretty patriotic and love the fact that it is made in U.S.A. also some of the $ goes to Lou Gehrig's (sp?) disease research.
NOT SO GOOD:
*When I opened the box it was pretty overwhelming. Looked confusing.
*Tried to read all of the instructions at one time-a lot to remember at first.
*The first time we played, there was too many people, too much noise and distractions-(I had about 40 at my house +kids). Second time kept it to 2 teams of 6 people, no little kids -much better -less noise.
TIPS:
*Read instructions ONE AT A TIME - read, then play that round. Read, then play the next round, etc.
*During the volley round - be thinking your next word during the other team's turn.
*Conserve your pass cards - save them for phase 3-it has the hardest categories. (shhh-don't tell the other team.
