Review of Blurt! The Uproarious Word Race Game6:04 PM
Finally, a game that challenges the mind, but is oh-so-simple to learn and play. Blurt! is that game, and it's so easy to master, that we opened it up late last night and played a quick game before we went to bed!
My husband, 11-year-old daughter, and I were able to read the instructions and begin in minutes. The pieces are nicely organized and contained within the packaging, and there were enough for the whole family to play. (And don't worry about younger players playing against older players, there are legal ways to level the playing field!) Suitable for ages 7 and up, it is fast and fun play for 3-12 players!
Each question in Blurt! seems almost too easy, but after you play for a while (literally shouting out the correct answer before anyone else), you get a little goofy, and find it even harder to think of the most obvious answers! This is where the real fun begins!
(In our jammies, playing Blurt!)
Because Blurt! packs up so nicely, it's great to keep in the car for trips to family get-togethers or vacations. (I can just see this on the dining room table at the next Thanksgiving dinner.) It's one of the games that there is no learning curve to start playing -- so everyone will feel welcome. (But yet it's challenging enough for the brainiacs to enjoy.)
