The thing that we all found most disappointing was the DVD. Given that the game is centered around a TV show, and it comes with a DVD that you use to play the game, we all had VERY high expectations to be watching a lot of little scenes from the show, and to have to answer questions based on that. Or at the very least, little scenes showing parts of the skit once we GOT the answer. Boy were we mistaken. The DVD, although it does contain a few portions of skits, and a few sound bites here and there, is LARGELY just the questions being shown on TV, instead of being on a card. VERY disappointing there.
Playing the game creates many "laugh out loud" moments, as the architects selected some of the funnier skits to test viewers' knowledge. Many of the questions will result in exchanges where players who remember the skit will fill in the rest of the table and everyone will get a good laugh. Sometimes, the humor explains itself, like during our game, when the question was, "Who played Mindy Cohn in a spoof of the former `Facts of Life' star?" When the name "Chris Farley" was read, the answer set the table on a roar.
As many people have already noted, the crowning achievement of the game lies in the craftsmanship of the playing pieces. Skillfully designed in a manner that nearly rivals those Civil War chess pieces of the 1980s, the little figures exude such a degree of adroit fabrication that many people will want to display them on desks or mantels. Players can select from such iconic characters as Beldar Conehead, The Landshark, Chris Farley's "down by the river" van dweller and my favorite, The Ladies Man (complete with his own glass of Courvoisier).
With all that going for it, however, degree of difficulty really harms the experience of playing the game. Lorne Michaels himself couldn't answer these questions. My family contains many members who frequently watch the show (although one player guessed "Mango" for nearly all questions), but our game slowed to nearly quagmire status, as correct answers were rarely achieved.Read more ›
Game Pieces: The game pieces are ingenious! You can play as one of several classic SNL characters such as landshark, Conehead or the Ladies Man. The pie pieces slide into the base of each piece and stay put even when the piece is turned upside down! This is great for us since we sometimes like to stop a game and pick it up on another day.
Game Board: The creativity in the game pieces ended there. The board looks really dated with graphics that look like they fell out of the 80's. They had the opportunity to design a really cool bored and I thought it fell short.
DVD: I love the addition of the DVD for "pie" questions. The navigation is a little jerky and hard to scroll from category to category and at one point, I accidently pressed stop and we had to start over again (and got some repeat questions.) We both loved the feature that you can "steal pie" if the person on the pie space doesnt know the answer or guesses wrong. It makes the game go much faster.
Questions: My husband and I consider oursleves die-hard SNL fans but were really surprised at how difficult the questions were! The game focuses on really specific details, lines, etc. from characters that were not just the mainstream characters. We got a lot of laughs remembering the episodes, but were stumped on a lot of questions. Also, the game includes characters and sketches from the show's beginning all the way to the current season. We were surprised to get a question involving Fred Armisan since he is a fairly new cast member.
Overall: Entertaining but definitely for the true-blue fans. The very difficult questions got a little frustrating!
We returned the game the following day.
