To our surprise (and joy!) Briana has included both You’ve been Sentenced! and Twisted Fish as some of her favorites. Below is an excerpt, but you really should visit to see full reviews and some of the other products she mentions!

You’ve Been Sentenced is a fun game for the entire family. Using 10 cards, formulate a sentence from 50 random words. You will find yourself laughing at some of the sentence concoctions. You can also add on decks for more variety like Pop Culture, Gourmet Cuisine, Sports Highlights, and Sci-fi Fantasy.  Your children will be having so much fun they won’t even realize they are also building their reading, grammar, and vocabulary skills.

McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds donates a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this game to the literacy organization Success Won’t Wait.

Twisted Fish is a card game designed for ages 6 and up for 3-6 players. Basically it is the old favorite of go fish with a “twist.”  Twisted Fish was named Creative Child Magazine 2007 Game of the Year Award.

Card deck consists of 13 unique Fish characters in 5 colors, plus 8 unique “Zingers”. Zingers allow you to break the rules. A challenging game which will have the whole family “hooked.”

Twisted Fish Retails for $10 and can be purchased on This is a great stocking stuff gift! “
