From the Manufacturer
On each turn, one team flips over a category card. Team members frantically brainstorm words that fit the category while the opposition tries to sidetrack them. The team must agree on a word and pull each letter of that word one lane closer to their side of the street, all before the time runs out. Word on the Street will have you in the fast lane to fun.

I would have given the game 5 stars but for one reason: the game desperately needs a referee. If the topic is "Pizza toppings" and one side chooses "blueberries" it's a theoretical possibility, but would you really do it? You might like anchovies while others hate it, but ... blueberries? The game's one flaw can be cured with a ref. Then it's fantastic fun.
The board is set up with the less common letters going down the middle with 2-3 (can't remember right now) spaces going to the left and the right. The object of the game is to get the most letters on your side by spelling the words out and moving the letters a space for each use. It may not sound like a game you would end up screaming over, but it really does turn into one. There are cards in the box that give you topics for the words you will need to come up with and you will have a blast getting creative.
I have played this game with 2-20+ people and I have to say the more the merrier!
Everybody that I've played this game with loves it, despite otherwise wildly varying tastes in games. Highly recommended.
The basic game is as follows: Each team has 30 seconds to think of a word that fits the category on the card and spell that word CORRECTLY while moving the corresponding tiles on the 'street'. The goal is to be the first team to get 8 tiles(letters)on your teams side of the board. Oh, and the opposing team can try and distract you during your turn!
As more and more letters are removed from play it becomes more difficult to think of a word that fits the card category and contains letters that are still in play.
The recommended age is 12 and up, but I honestly think younger kids would benefit from the game as well. After all, you don't have to use the 30 second timer, and they can be part of a team and help move the letters as someone else spells.
