Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Fun Bought this a few months ago and played it last night for the first time. We had eight of us playing so we kept score on paper. It was hilarious. Hopefully Mattel comes up with an expansion pack. Btw - we were all adults ranging in age from 23 to 63.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game! We purchased this game and have had the best time playing it. We have family game nights frequently. We also invite friends over to play with us. This is a game that we always want to introduce to new people. There has not been one person that we have played this game with that has not loved it just as much as we do. I highly recommend this game for everyone!! My family LOVES it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for groups A good game played best in larger groups (4+), especially teens and younger adults. While it was interesting to start off, some members got tired of the game after just a few rounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Teens and Young Adults What a great game, especially for a large group. We played it during our monthly family/mom's group meeting which also happened while we were celebrating my now 13 yr old's bday. Well it was a hit with the teens and young adults. The adults liked it but felt that the focus was better geared towards the younger members. Its fun and allows for creativity and improvisions which helps teens and young adults think outside the box. It was cool to see how much our kids actually know. I liked that it encourages large group play although it isnt the game for those under 12. Nice quality and well made doesn't seem flimsy and its compact but is a lot of fun [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wordplay Fun I enjoyed playing this game with my husband and son. My husband, a stick in the mud at times, laughed and had a good time. He even encouraged us to keep playing after the first few rounds. The instructions were difficult to understand, so I'm not sure if we played correctly but we enjoyed it nonetheless. We all enjoyed the fact that this game teaches us new, random facts and words. We love learning new things. I plan on taking this game to our family game nights with the in-laws and my extended family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game My family and I played Balderdash last night and we had a blast! The idea of the game is each card lists people, words, initials, movies, and laws that you've probably never heard of. From there you get to make it up and be as serious or silly as you want. You score points for guessing correctly or for successfully bluffing the other players. I would recommend this game to anyone 12 and older that loves an awesome game night filled with fun and laughter! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most Fun I Have Had in a Box This game was easy to set up and play. I am never good with reading instructions and putting things in motion. That is not the fault of the game producers. I am a hands on learner. Recruiting players was another problem. I believe my family thought it was just going to be another cheesy, boring board game. Once the teenagers saw how much the adults were laughing and having fun, they wanted to play. You definitely need to choose your opponents carefully as some people are just not good at playing this type of game and could be very boring if you are not with the right group of people. Also, two players is definitely not as fun as 4, but any more than 4 and the game would probably take far too long. Even just reading the cards and answers is fun, but making up answers and sharing them is urinate your pants hilarious. I love the part that is even educational as my husband thinks he knows everything, but this put him right in his place. The writing on the cards was a bit small for older players who have problems with eye sight (blame the husband for that complaint). It did not come with pencils like many other games. That was disappointing since all my writing utensils have run away with socks, pacifiers and sippy cups. The scoring is a little complicated and I found myself looking up how to score it many times. The sheet that you write your answers on is small and I wonder if you can order replacements when you use them all? An erasable board would be easy and fun. It is easy to tell whose handwriting is on the cards, so you eventually figure out whose answer it is. My younger children wanted to play, but this is definitely not age appropriate for anyone under 12, so the age recommendation is accurate. Many other games my family has memorized the answers. I believe there are enough cards to play this game for years to come without that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun family game night! We have been looking for fun family game nights. It tools us a bit to get the game figured out but once we did we were all having fun. This game give you lots of good laughs for sure. Some of the answers that our family came up was so great. There are not many games out there that are truely ment for family game night or if you have your friends over for game night. This game is suggested for 12+ but a couple of my children are below and some are above. We all had fun either way. We are looking forward to thanksgiving and Christmas when all the family get together as this will be so much fun. The instructions are set up very simple and the game set up it great. With the small size of it all you can take on road trips. We plan that when we take our road trip to take it with us and have the kids play in the car during our long time that we will be in the van. We look for games that are easy to take along and this is perfect. This is worth getting for your family is you are looking for something new and different for family game night or special occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best game ever this game was great it was a nice addition to our adult game night. if you like fun interactive games then this definitely is the game for you. I would highly recommend it. we have game night once a week and I think I can speak for us all the this was by far the greatest night with this new game. the fact that you get to make up your own ways to get people to figure out the answer is by far way better then just reading things off a card. if you have not tried this game is would definitely recommend you go get it you will not be disappointed and you will have hours of fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Game time I've played this game before but it's been a while. We are always looking for new games to play with family and friends. I love words and games like charades so this is right up my ally. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars in all categories is because you get out of this game what you put into it and some people just don't care for word games or creative games. If you are more of a numbers person and enjoy things like cards better it might not be for you. If your children are younger it might not be as easy for them to play. I think a lot of it has to do with personality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly great board game I'm a board game junkie. I bought this game a couple of years before my son was born. We were able to get together with other couples and singles before the kiddies came along, and this game was a big part of that time. It's a game of bluffing and who can keep a poker face, who can't and who has the most creative mind. It was so much fun!
