Playing the You’ve been Sentenced! word game? You’d better “think fast!” recommends Lisa Martin

November 30, 2009

We always love a great review, but sometimes, they are really exciting. Lisa Reviews is a great site run by Lisa Martin, a Chicago mom and blogging pro. And when I say pro, I mean it! Lisa has participated in several exclusive media projects, including the Sony Mommy Bloggers Event in April of 2008, the Pampers Mommy Bloggers Event, the Epson Event in Chicago, the Stouffers Event in April 2009, and 1-800-Baskets in October 2009. In addition Lisa’s blog has also been quoted in The New York Times, she has been interviewed by The Chicago Sun Times, and Inside. She also spoke on the doterati panel Blog Marketing Demystified just last month.

An excerpt of Lisa’s review follows. You can read the full piece at Lisa Reviews

You’ve been Sentenced!

“A great fun game to play with your family has to be You’ve been Sentenced! It’s for 8 and up, but with some help, even your new reader can play it. Each player gets 10 cards. You take your ten cards and make a sentence that makes sense. Your sentence then goes to the jury — that is, your fellow players. You have to justify why it makes sense to score. Some of the sentence you are forced to make up are pretty funny. It really makes you think fast and having to justify your sentence makes you have to think even faster! The game comes with 540 cards that are five sided, so you have hours and hours of unique games ahead of you! If you manage to make it through all of the cards, there are even add on decks! You can add on the Reader’s Digest National Word Power Challenge, Gourmet Cuisine, Pop Culture (this is our personal favorite), Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and Sports Highlights.

You’ve Been Sentenced is a game that is fun for any child or adult who can read!”
