Rated 5 out of 5 by from educational fun for the whole family We have been playing this and Word on the Street Jr at our homeschool co-op and I loving it. I like that adults and kids from 4-14 were all able to play together at their own level. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game that encourages spelling. Word on the street is a fun game that encourages kids to answer a question - "name a player's family members" with answers that start with certain letters of the alphabet. You have to be able to read to use this game - my 6 1/2 yr old can read and come up with interesting answers. Some questions are beyond him like "name state capitols" but " list ice cream toppings" was easy. My 5 yr old twins don't quite get the questions, unless it's easy, but they help figure out what the answer word starts with "m for mommy" or "s for shoe". As the kids get older I'm sure we will continue to play and learn with this game. This is probably better for the 7 and up crowd up. My husband and I played it after the kids went to bed and had a great time trying to out think each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for the whole family! We love game night at our house and were in need of a new game. We decided to play (orange cards) after we finished homework tonight and I was excited to see the learning continue! It is usually a battle to get my son, 8, through his spelling words each night, so I was a little unsure of how he would react to a spelling game. I was so surprised at his enthusiasm throughout the entire game. Word on the Street combines fun, family time and learning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way more fun than I thought it would be! I love that this is a game played in teams! We were easily able to include both child by pairing each one with a parent (15 year old and 6 year old). The instructions were easy to read and follow. I like that there's a couple of different ways that you can play too. Always fun to mix it up. Kept us all entertained for at least an hour both times we have played so far! Definitely looking forward to having friends over to play it all together! Two of my favorite things blended - fun and learning! As a homeschooling mom, it is very much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home and the classroom! First off, the quality of this game is amazing! It is very durable. The directions are easy to understand and there are a couple different ways to play based on how much time you have. The box says it is for ages 10+. We played it during family game night and, because you are on teams, my 8 year old AND 5 year old had a great time playing. They came up with the words and attempted the spellings while my husband and I helped along the way. We loved it and had so much fun. We played the long version and the game kept everyone's attention for over an hour. So fun! I also took this game to my classroom. I teach first grade (ages 6 and 7). I played it with my higher group of readers. I was prepared to stay with them the entire time to help, but I didn't need to. They caught on quickly and ran with it. It was just the right amount of challenge. They played the shorter version and were incredibly bummed when the time was up. They have asked me every hour since when they will get to play again. Very impressed with this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good game for any group! This was a very interesting game. I'm a librarian, and my patrons really enjoyed it. They had a lot of fun coming up with new answers and trying to best each other.
