Don't Say It Game £6.49 @ Amazon
It doesn't take a genius to figure out the object of Don't Say It! just from its title alone - you have to describe something to your team without saying the key words.
For example - could you describe a balloon without saying "pop", "inflate", "bang" or "float"? Or get your team to correctly say the word PIG! but without you having said 'sausage', 'sty' or 'pork' (I'd say: it's a pink animal that makes the sound OINK!).
You and your word-guessing team are up against the clock - if you beat the buzzer you score points, if you don't then you score nothing and if you SAY IT! then you're out.
The reviews for Don't Say It! are very good and range from parents who bought it for their children, adults who've 'borrowed' it from their kids to play after dinner at dinner parties, through to English language teachers!
"Great fun. Played it with the family, and we are all adults! See it being a success at Christmas/New Year parties,either with or without alcohol!! Will take it into school to use too, obviously without the alcohol!!!"
"I have twin 6 year old boys and an 8 year old girl and the whole family can sit down and play this game together. With differing levels of difficulty available for each individual player it is challenging for everybody and really expands your vocabulary. A really good game that can be taken anywhere (adding the scores also helps with basic addition and multiplication) Hours of fun for the whole family."
