Fun for the Family
Our kids (age 8 and 10)love this game, as do my husband and I and my mother. The kids enjoy winning and are learning about the US map and location of the states as they go, but the learning is fun and not painful. For adults, its a nice variation from normal cards. Because of the type of questions, kids and adults can generally play together without having to "pull your play" and everyone can have fun. Our kids like to show how much they know, especially about the states they have visited. I strongly recommend this game.

Fun and educational
Based on the hilarious book by Laurie Keller, this game works as a card game, a geography lesson, and an attribute game. One of the great things about this game is the way children of different ages can play it together, each at his/her own level. A four year old can look for a red state, or one by an ocean, while and older child can be taking in the capitals or other facts about the states. Deceptively simple, and a whole lot of fun. ...

Designed for competitive or cooperative play, Go Away Monsteris a delightful game for pre-school-age children. It gives them powerover fears they might have as they "rid their rooms" of scary monsters.By providing each of up to four players with his or her own playingboard--designed to look like a child's room--the game cunningly avoidspotential squabbles over sharing. Players take turns reaching into a"monster bag" and feeling for pieces of furniture needed for theirrooms. If they pull out a monster instead, they can hide it or throw itaway while shouting "Go away, monster!" Players may help one another orcompete to finish their rooms first. --Lee Strucker ...

Great first game for kids!
We bought this game for our son for Christmas and he loves it. It has really taught him how to take turns and cooperate with his sister when playing a game. It is also a lot of fun for him. Our son is has mild autism and the visuals of this game make it easy for him to learn and follow.

Go Away, Monster! is a great game!!
Our son, who is now 3 1/2, has been playing this game since he was 2 years old. It is so easy to learn. The play is so quick that it holds the attention of a 2 year old. It's just like the "grow-up" games with playing boards and pieces. Everyone with young children should own this game!!

very cool for speech delayed 3 year old, great first game
This is a wonderful first game....Be sure to make lots of high affect funny faces and sound effests...oh no...I picked a monster! and then in an exaggerated way take the monster and throw it to the side of the room saying "go away monster!!!!!!" and laugh..and smile. Very good for speech delayed or autistic kids that really need to develop shared attention skills...fun!!!!

JUST PLAIN FUN!!!
It is a great game to get a toddler started....you can make it as fun and funny as you want! There is no stress with complicated rules. A child learns to share, count, and recognize objects...without realizing it!

Takes the fear out of monsters
The silliest, friendliest monsters inhabit the bedrooms of Go Away Monster! My daughter loves this game, and her friends enjoy playing it together. They cheer whenever a monster is selected and thrown into the monster pit (box). It's great for matching objects, sharing, turn-taking, and lets kids feel in control of any monster fears. Sometimes we let the monsters hide under the bed, or pretend they're part of the wall, but they're always discovered and sent back to the box. ... Read more

Gamewright's Dog Dice, a Bingo game with a variety of lovable canine personalities, is an addictive pleasure for both kids and adults. Rather than numbers, the playing boards are decorated with squares depicting four dogs eating, frolicking with their child-owner, groveling for food, and getting into mischief. The title refers to the two dice that act as command central of the game: one die features the four distinctive dogs (Gizmo the mutt, Stretch the dachshund, Gigi the poodle, and McDuff the Scottie); the second die displays elements of a dog's life (pictures of a bone, food dish, the kid, a doghouse, plus the word trouble). Players match the two dice to a square on their boards--Gizmo in his doghouse, for example--then mark that picture with a small cardboard bone. The first to get a row of marked squares yells "Hot Dog!" and wins. In an ingenious twist, one can also achieve "Hot Dog!" by marking, canine-style, the four corners of one's playing board. The only drawback to this enchanting game is that there are only four boards in the set, thus limiting the number of players. Winner of awards from Dr. Toy and the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio. Dog Dice is for two to four players. ... Read more

Better than Bingo
Santa left this in our 3 year old daughters stocking (probably because he knew how much we enjoy Landlock, another Gamewright game). She had no trouble grasping the simple rules and yips with glee after every roll. The game has helped her with patience and turn taking and she was very happy to see that dogs can get into trouble too, not just 3 year olds. We've lost a few of the bone place holders but there are lots of spares provided and our dice have held up fine (possibly because we tend to play on the rug instead of at a table).

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun Family Game
Our daughter received this game for her 5th birthday. We've enjoyed many hours of playing it with her. It is fun and easy enough for her to play well and win (without cheating). Grownups get into it too! A worthwhile investment and a great edition to your games cupboard!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great hit in school-based use!
Overall, I have to say this is a great game that kids of all ages enjoy. I recommend Dog Dice to anyone - whether you are a parent looking for a fun game for your children or an educator looking to expand your classroom repertoire of games. Get this game, you won't regret it!

As a speech-langauge pathologist in an elementary school, I am constantly looking for fun, durable, and educational games to use in therapy. Dog Dice has met all my requirements - at least to some degree. This game is one of the more popular games with my students. It is played by at least 3 kids four or five times a day. The kids love this game and don't realize that they are learning to attend to details as well as improving visual discrim skills. My one complaint is this - the bones are somewhat fragile and I've had to staple the middle of several to prolong their lives. Is there any way I can get some more to supplement the original supply? The dice have held up well and still have all the colors intact - unlike other people's dice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun but it doesn't last
We borrowed this game from a friend and the kids (ages 4 and 6) loved it. We played continuously. The problem is that after a few days, the pictures of the dogs painted on the dice begain to flake off. Within 2 weeks, the dice were totally unreadable. We used a magic marker and drew little pictures on the dice but the kids didn't like it after that. So, they quit playing with it and it has sat in the closet ever since. If you get it, you'd better cover the dice with clear tape before it is too late!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Dog Dice Game
Bought this game ......for my 6 yr old son. He loved it as well as his older brother (11) and sister (9). It is not complicated, requires no reading but you need to be attentive to the roll of the dice. Even us parents are having fun with it. Highly recommend. ... Read more

A Great Gift For A Horse Lover
My 10 year old daughter received this as a gift; of all the games she got for birthday/Christmas, this was in the top five. The game requires some strategy -- at the random draw of a card, you must choose which horse to compete in that event. Each horse has varying degrees of strength in four different categories, but can only be used once in the game. As the players progress through each event, they must use weaker horses -- this is where the strategy comes in, as players must think in advance about the best way to use their stable of horses. The "right" answer is not necessarily to use the strongest horse each time. For additional complexity, there are also equipment cards that boost the strength of a horse in a single turn. Adults won't find this game particularly hard, but interesting enough to make it fun to play with your kids.

Fun
This is a really fun game. It has stratagy and beautiful horse pictures.
You'll love it!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Very Fun Game
I love this game! Although it doesn't teach much about the horses themselves, players can learn about the different disciplines. Very cute pictures of the horses! Like Herd Your Horses, this deserves to be a classic horse game that you can play again and again with horsey or non-horsey friends. Use strategy to determine which horse to enter into which class with which accessories. 'Horse Show' takes a little while to learn, but after that it moves quickly. If I could change one thing about this game, I would put information on the personalities, talents, etc. for each horse on the backs of the cards, like Herd Your Horses does. But it's fun to make up personalities, breeds, experience levels and other things for the horses and pick your favorites. If you're looking for an exciting horsey game to play, try 'Horse Show'.

5-0 out of 5 stars Horses, Fun, and Cards mixed together
Yes, Horses, Cards, and Fun all mixed together is definetly what I would call this masterpeice in Family Games. Illustrations are detailed and beautiful. Although you don't learn very much about the horses themselves, you can determine the four main classes of Showing. Horse Show will get you more interested in horses tham you ever have before, and I assure you any horse enthusiast, or someone who doesnt even have anything to do with horses, would spend hours of fun competing in Dressage, Equitation, Jumoer, and Hunter events.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down once you start it!
My 10 yr. old daughter got this game last Christmas, and really enjoys it! This is a card game format and players draw horse cards to use in game play, for different horse show events and competitions. Players need to use logical thinking when deciding what card(s) to play during the various events of a show (each horse has strengths and weaknesses). Each game is fairly quick (another plus!), but once players start, it's hard to stop after just a couple of games :-) This game would be especially enjoyable to horse-lovers! ... Read more

I have boys age 7 and 11 and both love this game. It's a great family game for all ages. I can play with the kids and they have as much of a chance of winning as I do. Our 7 year old often wins and we don't have to go easy on him.

frog juice
this is a great game to play at any event I first learned it at my softball summer camp. We played every night it was very very fun. its easy to play and u can play for hours

This game rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Frog Juice is a really fun game for the whole family. There are witches, witch wash, and spells. My family could play it all day. It is very fun. That's it.

Why did you change this game?
We have been playing Frog Juice since 1995. I have introduced the game to my nieces, nephews and godchildren. I purchased additional games and found that the game had been changed. The cards are different and the children tell me that it isn't as much fun as the original 1994 version. I have been searching for original copies. If anyone has one we would love to have it. I always look in stores to see if by chance one is there.

We have had so many hours of fun with this game. Now the

kids are older and are going off to school and would love to take the game along.

Bring back the original version. ... Read more

It's a shrimp-eat-plankton world out there, and small fry will easilyget hooked on Chomp!, the fast and finny food chain card game from Gamewright.With this deep-sea deck depicting sharks, seals, and assorted big and littlefishies, players can engage in several versions of the card game War (as inPortuguese man-of-) by flipping over a card from their school and being thefirst to devour something lower on the food chain played by an opponent. Anelectric eel instigates a feeding frenzy whereby even a little crawdad gets totake a bite out of a great white, but beware an Octopus Ink-Out--it muddies thewater enough to penalize any player who attempts to chomp another. Versatile andeasy to learn, Chomp! provides some silly sequencing fun for kids to sink theirteeth into. --Tony Mason ... Read more

Fantastic for all ages.
We have been able to play a simplified version of this game with our 4-year-old (either by working together against the game or later, by playing each other). However, we're not at all embarrassed to play this with adults. The rules are simple enough for young children to understand, but there is enough strategy involved that really mastering the game can take a while. Even my 64-year-old mother loves to play!

Not just kids stuff
My family has an entire closet dedicated to games but Landlock is the one we reach for the most. From the toddler who enjoys making maps with the sturdy little pieces to the grown-ups who hold grudge matches in the evenings, everyone loves it. Adult guests might look at you funny when you bring out the "gnome game" but only until you've whipped 'em a few times. The game box is also small, making it easy to toss into a suitcase or picnic basket.

Love this game-- all ages
It took a while to get the scoring and the strategy down, but my 8-year old and I would list this among our favorite games. Our family is a BIG fans of most all of the Gamewright games, but this one in particular manages to put an 8-year old and a 40-year old on the same playing field, so to speak. In fact, he has learned to take advantage of me by switching "Land vs. Water" positions every other game so that I become confused whether I'm trying to build "islands or ponds." Get the game. You'll learn what I mean.

Major Award Winner
Although I work for Gamewright, I wanted to mention that Legend of Landlocke has won two awards: Mensa and Games Magazine Top 100 Game.

It's a great strategy game for two players or teams. We hope you enjoy playing Landlock.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Card Game of Intrigue, Honour, and Shame
As an avid collector of board and card games, I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of this title. While not as educational as some family games available, there are significant lessons to be learned. Younger players can build skills such as basic strategy and understanding the value of diplomacy. Older, more serious players can appreciate this game for its simple mechanics, subtle gameplay, and competitive gaming environment. Add this to the fun of interacting with other players in the political arena of ancient Japan, and Honor of the Samurai is sure to please. Highly Recommended.

Honor of the Samurai
Honor of the Samurai is a great, intriguing game that all players will find interesting. It is played with cards, similar to the game Magic. Every player starts out with two main characters. Then you add cards on to the layout of the cards in front of you.Every card has a certain number of honor you collect every turn. When a player has 400 honor he/she wins the game. Cards also have ki to determine how many actions they get every turn, as well as strength to assist in attacking or defending. Cards can be stolen, so you have judge what to put down and what to hold onto in your hand. All cards have strengths and weaknesses, so again you must determine what you need to put down.
This a game composed of luck as well as strategy. It is educational in the way of strategy, but if you want to learn about Feudal Japan, find something else. This is an intriguing, fun game that is hard to stop playing. It is definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Honor of the Samurai
Truly a great game, and well worth the purchase.

As a toy it is great fun, easy to play, and never the same game twice. Further, I well appreciate a fast paced, action packed card game where there is no booster packs or additional cards to purchase. All you need is in one box, ready to go and easy to use.

For its educational value, I'd give the game points for its historical accuracy, but limited, as most games are, I'd not use it to teach about Feudal Japan. Still, it remains a strategy game. Played well it can prove as thought-provoking as chess and serve to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Durability? I'd say it's as durable as the next, but I will award points for being well designed and put together. Unlike other games I've played, it's easy to get the game out of the box, and more so, everything can be put back (and fit) just as neatly as when I first opened it. And this, of course, keeps the game looking nice.

Over all, a great purchase... and one I will get use out of time and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Riviting Game about Historic Japan
I (age 14) recently played this game with my best friend and two 11 year olds (our sisters), and had a blast! We couldn't wait to play it again, and did in fact the next morning! Honor of the Samurai is a game that never gets boring, there are endless strategies on how to get earn 400 honor points (at which point you win the game), and keep other players from getting in your way while reaching that goal. Additionally, Honor of the Samurai is an incredibly fast paced game, one turn you could be winning the game, but by your next turn you could be wining it!

To give you a brief idea of how game play goes, each person possess a daimyo and a samurai (in English terminology, these would be similar to a noble/lord and a knight). Each player is given a daimyo and samurai card at the beginning of the game, which each have various pluses and minuses. These include ki (the combined ki of all your cards determines how many "card actions", --i.e. drawing and playing cards-- you get), honor (you get the combined honor points of al your cards at the beginning of each turn, remember to win you have to get 400 of these) and lastly strength, which helps you to win wars.

Once you understand these basic aspects, you can begin to draw and play cards, all of which increase you amount of ki, honor, strength, or a combination of the three. Some example cards are: castles which gain you honor and strength, armies which gain you strength, and wives, which gain you honor and ki.

The ultimate card however, is the shogun card, which makes your daimyo the "king." For every turn that you are the shogun, you gain between 50 and 100 honor points (depending on the number of players)! The title of shogun is the reason you have all of the other cards, so that you won't be assassinated, declared war on, have things stolen from you etc, and so that you can keep your title as shogun and increase your power.

So, there you about have it. Once again, I definitely recommend this games for kids and adults alike. Happy playing!

P.S. Every Game Wright I every played (over 6) has been great fun. I really recommend them!

My wife and I have spent 4 years looking for this game after playing with some friends'. The game is similar to Pictionary except you use clay.

Have a six year old with nothing to do? Want to find a way to interact with your children? Then try Play Ball by Gamewright. Gamewright has created a truly unique game that makes learning addition fun.

Play Ball is fast and easy to learn. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and I was up and playing in less than three minutes. What makes this game different is that way it teaches cooperation and sportsmanship to the very young.

Educators, parents and kids will spend hours learning to add to nine. A great game for those rainy days when you have nothing to do. Play ball is small enough to travel and extremely easy to store.

Editorial Review

In the game War, players compare cards, and the highest number wins and takes the other cards. Alien Hotshots picks up where War leaves off. In the year 4560, an interstellar war breaks out between the Evens and the Odds. Each side, strategizing, ups the ante, creating exotic secret weapons such as the Odd Eater and the Space Germ. Plustoids and Minusaurs orbit the planets, ready to help their favorite side. The 55 standard-size cards are illustrated with such space creatures as Cephaloid Surfers, Zygodactylous Terrain Walkers, and the disgustingly slimy, inedible Plasmoid Pods, each with an odd or even number value or a power-card symbol. This space-age complexity adds fresh interest to the classic game while teaching strategy, exploring the concepts of odd and even, and inspiring young players to ponder what's really out there beyond Earth. --Emilie Coulter ...

Fun twist on the game of War
It took us (me and my 7 and 5 year olds) a while to figure out the rules of the game, but it was a fun game when we worked out most of the details. This is a variation on the familiar War game (with a standard deck of cards without the jokers) with a space/alien twist. In the deck, besides the numbered cards, one gets space Germ cards and one Blackholeb card, which have unique functions. There are also Even Eaters and Odd Eaters, which "gobble up" respective cards (though we had to guess what "gobble up" entailed in a game). There are also Plus-es and Minus-es cards which can change values of numbered cards thereby changing the outcome of a hand.

The box says the game is for 8 and up, but we had no problem playing this game. If my 5 year old had any confusion about even and odd numbers, much of the confusion got cleared up after one round. And the Plus-es and Minus-es also help teach some very basic math concept.

At the beginning I got a bit frustrated with the rules of the game. But we went ahead with the playing anyway and as we went along, my kids figured out most of the stuff on their own. All in all, an interesting game.

Excellent but not as durable
Children loved it right out of the box. The graphics, the story and the rules were simple and fun. Game ends quite quickly and keeps children involved. I wish the cards were a little durable...

Alien Hotshots Hot!
Whenever a child has a chance to learn basic, lifelong skills and have a blast doing it, that's a chance not to be missed. Alien Hotshots not only teaches children about numbers, this card game teaches the relationship numbers have with each other and the multiple ways numbers can interact with each other. The fear of numbers and, by extension, the fear of math that some children have will be greatly relieved by this game. The game is very easy to learn and never grows stale. Being a card game, cards can get misplaced. Children will want to carry certain cards around with them. The artwork on each card is eye-catching and interesting to look at over and over again. When my daughter wrote to Gamewright saying what a great game this was, the owners sent back an appreciative, personally-written response. An endearing game from an endearing company.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Card Game!
This was an eye-opener of a card game for our boys. It was highly recommended to us and we have not been disappointed. It has saved us through many restaurant dinners when the boys needed something to keep them busy and relatively quiet!

The play is similar to the familiar card game of 'War' which I learned with a regular deck of cards when I was growing up. The great part of this game is that certain cards have special values. The even-eaters will always beat any even card and the odd-eaters can take any odd card -- as long as it is one of the cards without the immunities. There are, however, some other cards that offer immunities to those attacks which results in an extra degree of randomness. Moreover, there are 'plus' cards which can be held separately from your other cards; these can be used strategically to defeat other cards. This element of strategy is what gives this game some educational value as the players have to be careful for when they use those special cards. The Black Hole card is also a key differentiator. When it comes up, it takes cards out of play which helps to ensure that this game can actually come to an end.

Alien Hotshots is a nifty game. We highly recommend it for kids as a lively alternative to other card games.

Your cauldron bubbleth over. The broth needs onion and sausage, butyou're stuck with a mittful of cabbage and peas. What to do? Simmer down; ifyou're between a rock and a hard place, you'll just have to bluff your waythrough this recipe. And with Stone Soup, Gamewright's game du jour, the housespecial is deception, sneakiness, and crafty culinary card-play. Based looselyon the old folktale whereby reluctant villagers were enticed to enhance a"delicious soup of water and stones" by adding "just one more vegetable," StoneSoup consists of a 54-card ingredient deck dealt out and composing aconsommé that must be assembled--in specific ingredient order--by placingcards face-down into the pot and hoping that no one calls a bluff. Oh, sure,it's delicious when tomatoes are called for and you have two tomato cards, butwhat do you do with your Stone cards except hope to sneak them in, face-down, byannouncing "Here are four tomatoes!" Get busted and the penalty is severe: takeall cards in the pot. Ditch 'em all, either by evading challenges to discards,or by completely honest card-play, and the only thing missing from your victorybouillon is salt and pebble... uh, pepper. --Tony Mason ...

A great intro.game to bluffing
This is a great introductory game to bluffing. The idea of the game is simple: players put down cards (face down) according to a certain order--potatoes cards, tomatoes cards etc. (all ingredients for making a good soup). There are stone cards in the deck. The goal of the game is to get rid of all of one's cards. Bluffing comes in when one must get rid of stone cards or other unwanted cards. For example, if it is my turn and the turn calls for tomato cards, but I don't have tomato cards, I may put a potato card down and declare it a tomato card. Others may let me pass or they may call my bluff (Stone Soup!).

The game is for 8 and up and for once I agree with Gamewright. I played it with my 5 and 7 year olds. My 7 year old understands the concept, but her face often gives her away. My 5 year old sighed at the end that he "always lost". He was putting down 10 tomato cards when there are a total of 4 in the deck. With time, they may learn to play better, but I can see us having a great time when they are older. We will probably have more fun when we have more people playing.

STONE SOUP!!!
I played this game with my two sisters (in their twenties) and we had a blast. It's a simple game of pure bluff and dare. I'd rather play this with a group of people than say - something like UNO, or Old Maid . . . whatever. ... Read more

Great for learning concept of negative numbers
This is a great educational game: it is fun and in no time kids learn the concept of negative numbers. It is rated for kids 10 and up, but I've played with my son who is 5 and he has no problem playing this game, though he did not want to sit through my explanation of what a negative number was (which didn't affect his game playing).

The game comes with a ruler/measuring strip with which kids can do their calculation visually. The strip is not as good as I would like--I wish they put some sort of slider on to help kids keep track of the current sum, but it works nonetheless.

The key is for an adult to play a few rounds with the kids and teach them how the game works. We love it in our family. Like many of the Gamewright games, it has a very specific range in educational value. If your kid has trouble grasping the concept of negative numbers or adding or subtracting with negative numbers, this game just may solve the problem. ... Read more

The winner of an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award, Make ItUp answers those probing questions about how something is made orwhat it's made up of. Each of the 18 sturdy cardboard story cards holdsillustrations of five or more related items, with the center itemlocated on a punch-out oval section. The game can be played alone orwith one or two others, and the goal is to match each oval tile with itsproper story card. For example, the birdhouse is matched with the bird,saw, nails and wood; the painting matches with the paint tubes, brush,palette, and blank canvas, and so on. The game comes with a ParentsGuide of brief narratives for each card, along with rules forcooperative play and for memory/matching play. The game was designed bya practicing child psychotherapist and a child psychiatrist. --AvaNatov ... Read more

For those of you tired of all the fun being had by a certain dog (andBingo was his name-o), the folks at Gamewright would like to provide a littleequal opportunity for kitties. With Kitty Corners--a nice dice-and-mice race tobe Top Cat by getting either four in a row or all four corners--themanufacturers present another award-winning educational game. Players attempt toplace a mouse token on their colorful bingo board, each square of which depictsone of four cats in feline frolic. Roll both the kitty die and the action dieand cover all squares that match the resulting picture. Is that Sassy playingwith her yarn? Or Meatloaf bugging a bird? But watch out for Cat Scat on theaction die: you'll have to remove a mouse from your board. Kids shouldfamiliarize themselves with the pictures on both the boards and the dice beforeplay begins so they don't get frustrated making matches. Only one human appearson the die, while the board depicts four (all constitute a match), and Meatloafis a big bundle of brown spots on the board, but solid brown on the die. Fasterthan a hungry kitten, and sharper than claws on a new sofa, Kitty Corners is thecat's pajamas. --Tony Mason ... Read more

What's the Bzz? Well with Gamewright's Bzz Out card game, there's awhole lotta hive-hoppin' and honey-swappin' goin' on. A deck of whimsicalnumbered cards (Anthony Lewis's illustrations depict a cartoon swarm engaged inactivities beginning with, appropriately enough, the letter B) is used asplayers take turns deciding if they want to keep the top card from their hive ortrade it to the beekeeper on their left, in an effort to have thehighest-numbered card (and thereby score a Honey Pot token) after all keepershave played. A Bzz Out card enables you to tell a prospective trader to "Bzzoff!" and it scores you a token, too. But don't feed the bears: get caughtholding a Honey Bear card at the end of the round, and surrender a token.Designed for three to six players, Bzz Out is a great little game with a nicestrategic sting. --Tony Mason ...

I just couldn't stop playing!
I was at my dance recital backstage for an hour before it was my turn to perform and my friend asked me if I wanted to play the game. I didn't know how to play. but it's easy to understand the rules. We started playing it, and before we knew it a lot of other girls were playing with us too. Once we finished one game, we had to play an other. I just couldn't stop playing it. You can have up to 6 people playing it, so it's perfect for a party. I think this game is fun for anyone. I also kind of figured out why the title has the word dangerous in it- When you grab a charm, everybody starts yelling and grabbing really fast. It's a great card game even for a long trip in the car!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game!
I loved "She's Charmed and Dangerous". It is a shout and grab card game. My friends and I are all addicted to it and play it whenever we can. The only problem is you have to grab a tiny little heart when someone shouts "Charmed" and everyone ends up scratching each other and the cards get bent up. But other than that I would recomend this game to anyone. Even adults can get addicted! ... Read more
