We are a gaming household. And I don't mean that to say we have every type of gaming console under the sun, like some people I know do... I mean traditional gaming- BOARDGAMES! We have a pretty large selection of games, and 95% of them have all come to us in one of two ways: thrift stores or gifts. For Christmas we got a new one I had actually never seen- You've been Sentenced! and we broke off the plastic wrap and played it a few nights ago.
Now this is one of those games that can get heated if you let it, but just keep an open mind. We decided the sentences didn't have to make complete sense, but they did need to follow basic grammatical rules. Each group will need to make there own declarations before game plan starts, but it's really simple, doesn't take long to learn, and will cause a lot of laughs. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new group game.
