I don't know how educational this game is, but it certainly does focus on reading and making sentences, and the words are all clean (though some combinations can definitely have a double entendre effect) so it's safe for even young kids while still fun for adults-only use too. The only real drawback is the lack of any way to incorporate punctuation, especially commas, but you make up for it in the way you read your headline, providing the right emphasis to make it funny and make it make sense.
Man Bites Dog is an extremely small (about the size of 2 1/2 decks of playing cards) and easy game with which to travel. We slip the cards into our luggage when we leave on vacation. All you need is a scrap of paper on which to keep score and a pen/pencil, plus the cards, and viola! Instant fun.
Beware, some of the words might be considered a little risque by some parents; but then, those are the words that make the best headlines! The headlines are intended to replicate those in a real life tabloid, only even more humorous. Please note, you may have to help younger players prepare headlines appropriate for a newspaper, since kids may be used to writing in complete sentences. You may arrange your headlines any way you see fit, so if you're in a "family setting" you have the opinion of toning down your headlines... or if you're with your drinking buddies, kick it up a notch. This game makes a nice addition to a family's games, and is easy to take on trips.
Love that "bizarre" is worth 50 points and "Wall Street" 0!

Some grammar was discussed, imaginative story-telling and negotiation encouraged. Highly recommended to encourage word play even among reluctant readers, and fun for adults too!
We thought it was a fun game, but it wasn't fun for her at all and we couldn't help her get past that. The game was quickly set aside for a more traditional board game.
It comes in a small box that fits in any backpack. My friends and people at gaming conventions have all loved this game. I keep hoping University Games will put out a new edition of this game soon. Cheap enough, around $10, and definitely worth the money. Provides lots of laughs, a great party game.

Our family really enjoys this game. It is one of the first games we have found that my seven year old can play, and my husband and I still enjoy. Read morePublished 21 days ago by A. Lautenschlager
