Board Games Critic calls the You’ve been Sentenced! word game “addictive”

January 4, 2012

I checked Google Alerts for the first time this year (doesn’t that sound funny?) and found a fabulous new review for the You’ve been Sentenced! word game at Board Games Critic. here’s a brief snippet, but you can read the review, as well as reviews for dozens of other board games, card games, and educational games at Board Games Critic:

You’ve Been Sentenced is a board game we were sent to review a couple of months back and in that time we’ve played the game more times than I care to count – it really is that addictive.

Overall we felt that You’ve Been Sentenced really deserved the awards it’s received. It’s hard in this world and in this board game market to create a word game which isn’t boring and which offers something different to what we’ve all seen before, You’ve Been Sentenced does that.

…The game requires very little preparation and the rules of the game are written in a clear, concise and simple to follow format which will allow you to play the game within minutes of opening the box.

The Final Verdict

You’ve Been Sentenced is a surprisingly fun and educational word game which can be enjoyed by the entire family and which we will continue to play again and again.

The overall look and feel of the game is simple but attractive, the packaging is sturdy and well made.

The addition of expansion packs by McNeill Designs is, in our opinion, a brilliant move since it provides much more variation to the standard game. On it’s own we found the game quite challenging and sometimes a little intense but by adding in expansion packs pertaining to our own areas of interest we felt the game immediately become much more fun.

Overall, if you’re looking for a game which is fun but also offers good educational value for the whole family the “You’ve Been Sentenced” game is the one for you.”
