My husband works almost 300 miles away and is gone throughout the week, so we do not get as much quality time as a family as we would like. On the weekends we try to fit in as much family time as possible. One of the ways we do this is to have a family game night every Sunday, since playing the same games every week can get a little boring we are always looking for new games to add to our arsenal. One of our newest additions is Blurt!, we had the chance to give it a try this past Sunday and we had a blast playing it.
"Blurt is so simple, yet so fun. It’s a vocabulary builder for kids and a riot for adults. Will your mouth keep up with your mind? Just play it once and you’ll be a fan for life!"
"Think fast. What word means "a partially dried grape"? Be the first player to say "raisin," and you're on your way to winning this riotous game of rapid word recall. Players take turns reading clues aloud, competing to blurt the correct answer first and move ahead on the board. The first person or team to circle the board is the winner. Sounds simple, right? But as the race for the right word heats up and the blurting gets boisterous, it's easy to get tongue-tied. Blurt is a great vocabulary builder for the kids, a hilarious addition to adult parties, and a must for a family game night. For 3-12 players. Ages 10 and up. Includes a Junior version for ages 7-9."
I really cannot say enough good things about this game.. It is fast paced, exciting and educational an all around great game for people of all ages! I would highly recommend this game for anybody looking to have a good time. Don't want to take my word for it? Check out the reviews on Amazon.
Blurt is available for purchase at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, your favorite specialty toy retailer or from Educational Insights.
