The first game in history to turn making sentences into a very funny, playable, and challenging game. Using a unique word deck of pentagon shaped cards containing conjugations of funny words, famous names from history, familiar places, and wild cards, players have to make grammatically correct and justifiable sentences. The real fun begins when players have to read their sentences out loud and explain what they mean to the rest of players. They form the jury and vote thumbs up or down on whether the sentence and justification stand and the points are scored. 540 cards with over 2,500 words insure billions of possible sentences so the game is never repetitive and has unlimited replay value.

Less easily fixable: The name cards (each offering five choices based on an initial letter) are skewed towards someone's favorite population of celebrities and historical figures -- 85% male, in terms of real-life names used in the game -- plus some silly alliterative stereotypes on male and female names (Superior Scott, Roaring Ricky, Gorgeous Gina, Pretty Paula). Thankfully, there's always a wild-card option on each name card. Still, this makes me less enthusiastic about playing, especially with kids, because of the implicit message that of course it's more fun to make up sentences about men.
Edit: a picture summarizing one comment on my review, using the cards.
The only 'mushy' part of this game is that there's no way to prove that any given sentence is grammatically correct, since there's no reference that can determine that. The game's rule is that, if the group agrees on the correctness of the sentence, then, it is so. Kind of chancy, I think.
All in all, the game is a lot of fun.
Thanks to McNeill designs for the opportunity to try out and review this fun and educational game.
