A Family Friendly Thinking Board Game That is Fun for Family & Friends or as a Holiday Party Icebreaker

WIN this game! Details below post
Few family friendly board games are as fun or suitable for holiday gatherings and other celebrations for parents and kids where everyone knows each other as they are for those parties where people get together who may not necessarily know each other. Say Anything, an innovative game from NorthStar Games, is one of the rare examples of non-electronic entertainment products that actually appeals to both types of crowds.

Families and friends that play this who know each other well will be surprised at all they really don't know about how each other thinks.  While those meeting each other for the first time over this game will likely have just as good a time since this is the perfect ice breaker for parties, too.

For sure Say Anything is an amusing game whether you know the other players or not. I found this out first-hand by playing this game in both settings.

The first time I participated in the game was at a party sponsored by NorthStar Games during SheCon New Media Expo in Miami earlier this year where I met many new people for the first time. Then just recently we played Say Anything at a party at home that I held for friends and my own kids in conjunction with the consumer food brand Sabra and House Party.

As these situations demonstrate this game is entertaining no matter what the occasion. My fellow players and I were talking, laughing and having fun in no time whether it was a group of us adults playing this hilarious game together at a business party or a more casual gathering at home with a mixture of friends and family -- both adults and teens -- enjoying this.

For 3-8 players, ages 13 and up, this game is as easy as 1-2-3 to get up and running
1. Ask one of the 5 questions from the card you draw
2. Everyone else writes their answer on their dry erase board and turns it face up in the middle of the table
3. You then secretly pick the answer that you think is best, marking it on the spinner which you turn face down. Then everyone else bets on the answer they think you picked.
