Review:

Mad Libs: The Game, a fun spin-off of the traditional Mad Libs word game, includes 200 Word cards and 42 Sentence cards. Players use their cards to create grammatically correct, yet hilarious sentences.

The Word cards display form one to five variations of a single word. For example, the card with the word "Wizard" can be used only as a noun, but it can be used as singular or plural. The word "Waste," however, can be used as a noun or a verb (waste) an adverb (wastefully) or two adjectives (wasted or wasteful).

The Sentence cards contain a single sentence-in-the-making with up to four blanks requiring different parts of speech. Each player is dealt seven word cards; the Sentence cards are placed in the center of the table as are the remaining Word cards. In each round, the top Sentence card is turned up and read aloud. Each player chooses the necessary number of Word cards he/she is holding to make the "best" sentence. When everyone has selected her/his Word cards, each player reads her completed Sentence aloud. Once all Sentences are read aloud, players vote for their favorite sentence. The first player to win three rounds wins the game.

Parts of speech has never been this fun, or funny or fun-filled. Designed for 3-8 players, ages 10+.
