Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transcends generations This is one of the most engaging games I have played in a long time. There are two ways to play the word game which makes it doable for grandchildren to play with adults. Older family members an play either of the games with all the rules in place. We have successfully played Match Play with the grandchildren (the youngest being 6). For Match Play, there are three words on a card such as --------- HOUSE, --------WELL, BIRD----------. Each player is to write a common word or phrase that goes with the word. Points are given for each answer matched. In the other game, a timer is used, there is one word on the card, and the player is to come up with as many unique phrases, titles, etc. containing the word. A point is scored for each NON-matching answer. I see this as a great family game with potential for use in classrooms and other gatherings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this game! We bought several of these to give as gifts and kept one for ourselves. It did not disappoint. We have enjoyed hours of family fun. From our 8 year old to teenagers to adults. A good time for all. Highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for kids and adults alike Gave to my 12 yr old niece as Christmas gift. This was a fun game we played several times over the weekend. Appeals to many ages. Fun to play and we only did the scratch play. Nice to know there are other ways to play the game too. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Favorite Family Game Night is popular in our house and we are always on the lookout for games that are complex and strategic enough to challenge adults, but with simple mechanics that capture and hold the attention of children. Most word games have received a lukewarm reception and little replay interest, but Choice Words was a pleasant surprise and a true gem in the word game genre. The “scratch play” scoring mechanism (players collectively decide if an answer is good enough to score) allows the words and phrases conjured up by younger players to be judged in the context of their life experience, and keeps the game competitive and enjoyable for everyone. While the game itself is challenging, the fun for us has been in the passionate lobbying for obscure and borderline answers. Naturally the debate is more lively and entertaining with close friends and family. This game has become one of our favorites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game for kids and adults We have played the game both with our grade school age children and in an adult party setting and it works well in both capacities. We definitely recommend adding this to your game collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Family Parties I recently played this game with my family at my sister's birthday party, and we had a blast! It was a perfect way to include everyone at the party from ages 8 to 75. We definitely will be playing this game again in the future! I just need to practice convincing everyone that my words and phrases count!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We enjoyed this more than Scattergories Eight of us ranging from age 14 to 75 played this game for the first time over the holidays. Everyone enjoyed it. We have played Scatttergories in the past and also enjoy playing it. We found this game to be more versatile and challenging. We particularly liked the "dealer's choice" between playing match play and scratch play. We had some lively discussions about whether certain words or phrases counted and the rule that two objections ended any arguments is a good one. Very fun game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This game gets you thinking and talking. Six of us played this game, ages 32 to 70, grandparents and parents; thinking, talking and laughing for several hours. We are now giving the game as Christmas gifts to friends, to increase our chances of playing it. Not only fun but an opportunity to learn about language and the other players.
