Hope you all had a super great Thanksgiving! We did! Plenty of food and friends to share it with! And I managed to stick by my diet, other than a small helping of mashed potatoes!
I have worked with Out of the Box before and we always LOVE their games! I have never been disappointed and they have done it once again with Faux-cabulary, the outrageous game of wild new words! This one can get rather silly at times, which is perfect for our family.
|Forming a word.|
|Trading a die.|
|Forming a word!|
|Card reads:The smell of an old person.|
|Here are the words created.|
|The words created.|
For example the card might read: Slowing down to below the speed limit when you see a police car. The other players then start working with their die to create a new word. Maybe, "robotronicuber" or "bagcopation" or "antitechdis". You do not have to use all three die for your word, and you may trade 1 die if you wish. So maybe it could be "digifunk". The "wordmeister" then reads the words out loud, and chooses which one they believe best goes with the definition. That player then receives the card, and play continues around with the next person becoming the "wordmeister". The winner is the player with the most cards at the end of the game. What a great game from Out of the Box!
Sometimes it is hard to be the "wordmeister" as some of the words really don't fit the definition, and you just have to choose one, but sometimes you would be amazed at the words created. We were all laughing throughout the game. This would also be a great icebreaker at get togethers. What a great gift idea, for teens or families.
Faux-cabulary ($29.99) is recommended for ages 13+, but my 11 year old played and enjoyed the game. You can play with 3-7 players. We actually played with 8, because the "wordmeister" did not compete, and we did teams, working together. So if you need an extra gift idea, be sure to consider Faux-cabulary!
