This is a fabulous game for parties. Since we got the game we've pulled it out at every party we've had.

We love games that let you split into teams for a couple reasons - you can get some healthy competition going and it takes the pressure of the individuals needing to come up with every answer. If you can't get a good answer, someone else on your team probably will. So you can still carry on in the banter against the other team without the stress.

And it doesn't take very long to play - which is good because we can never stop with just one round. Someone is always calling out to play again.

Take all your consonants except for the ridiculous ones like Q, X and Z. Put them on your satisfyingly hefty bakelite tiles. Now, make a long game board, like a 4-lane highway with a divider strip just wide enough and long enough to accommodate all of your happily hefty letter tiles. Next, get together a deck of 216, often surprisingly laugh-provoking, double-sided category cards, like: "The Brand of Clothing Worn by One of the Players," and "Something that is Wasted," and "Something Used by Scuba Divers," and "A Word that Describes a Car Crash," "A Title Used for Males but not for Females." Add a cardholder and sand timer. And those are all the ingredients needed for a new and notably Major FUN word game called "Word on the Street" from those frequently Major FUN game publishers, Out of the Box.

Everything, of course, except for the rules. And there in lies the tickle.

Designed by Jack Degnan to give a couple or a couple of teams of word-lovers ample opportunity to demonstrate their brilliance and/or befudlement, the game is a contest to see who, in 30 seconds, can think of a word that 1) fits the category, and 2) has as many as possible of the letters still in play, many of which are doubled - as in MISSISSIPPI which would allow us to move the M one lane closer to us, the P two lanes closer, and the S clear off the board, which would put us one letter ahead. Only 7 more to go and we win!

Though Mississippi would in deed be a coup, it would not be considered a valid response to the category "A Brand of Clothing Worn by One of the Players." To which the best I could do at this time is probably MAIDENFORM (getting to move M twice as well as a D, N, F and R once). Or would MASSIMO with its two M's and two S's be better?

This game is one of the best I've ever played. It's perfect for anyone (especially adults) of all ages and can be learned in two minutes or less (depending on your groups attention span). Players try to earn letter tiles to their side of the street by choosing a word that includes as many letters as possible that are still on the board while also fitting a specific category shown on a drawn card. Each letter tile is moved one lane over toward the playing teams side of the street each time it is used in their word until it comes off of the board and then it is officially "earned" and is that teams tile to keep. But if it does not make it off the board, the opposing team can try pulling it back towards their side of the street if they can identify a word that includes it as well as fit their category. One of my favorite aspects of playing is that you can also try to heckle the other team during their turn to choose a bad word that won't be as beneficial to them while they have the pressure of a sand timer staring at them. Some of the most fun you can have playing a game in my opinion. I HIGHLY recommend it. Perfect for any get together or party and can be played as casually, or as competitively as possible (sometimes it's best if couples stay on a team for this reason). We often end up playing this game for hours!

I work with gifted and talented students, grades 2-6. At each grade level they have enjoyed this game. It can be played with a large group (I have had up to 11 players). This is a great price, with no shipping charges.

I played this game at a Meetup on the upper west side of Manhattan. I've always liked word games, and this one is fun. You have to think, but you're in teams and you have 30 seconds to discuss and come up with an answer. Mind you there are some topics that will make you think harder than others. But the vowels and more difficult letters like Q, X and Z are not included. There's 17 letters total, and you can try to get a letter back on your team's side of the street if it hasn't gone off the board yet. Capturing eight letters on your side of the street wins the game.

The game is easy to learn and takes about a half-hour to play. It's a fun game that makes you think, which I personally like. Plus it makes a great team party game. One tip - you might want to have the Scrabble dictionary handy in case of a dispute with a word's spelling.

Bought as a Christmas gift but have played it as well. This is somewhat different from most word board games - easy to learn, can play individually or as teams, will improve your vocabulary and spelling while still having fun. Would recommend as an entertaining game.
