Twisted Fish and You've Been Sentenced Review & Giveaway




We try and play a lot of games. We like the fun we have. It's hard for Avery to get involved because she's still so young. I try and play Candyland and Memory and such with her, but those aren't very family games. We received 2 games for review from McNeill Designs. We got to try the Twisted Fish and You've Been Sentenced. 

Jon and I played Twisted Fish the night we got it. We LOVED this game. Even though it's targeted toward a younger group we had a blast. Avery wouldn't get it quite yet, but I think in 2 years or so, it won't be a problem at all. It's like Go Fish, but takes so much longer to finish the game. You have to ask specific colors and kinds of fish. So it's a little more drawn out, but I liked the game a lot. 

Sadly we haven't played You've Been Sentenced yet, but I think we're planning on playing it tonight. I hope it will be fun. He said that it can get kind of 'dirty' when playing with adults! Can't wait to play it and see how fun it is. Basically you make up sentences with the cards that are dealt to you. 

Price: You've Been Sentenced is $24.95 and Twisted Fish is $10 which are reasonable prices. 

Overall: ***** so far! Can't wait to try YBS.


 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products*
