Say Anything Family Edition


Say Anything Family Edition is a game that will get the entire family talking and laughing in minutes! This light-hearted family oriented version of the popular adult party game gives players the chance to settle questions that have been hotly debated for centuries. For instance, “Which celebrity would make the worst babysitter?” or “What magical power would be the coolest to have?” The best thing about Say Anything Family Edition: There are no right or wrong answers – just your opinions. This is every family’s chance to Say Anything!


You know what’s great about Say Anything Family Edition? It’s really easy to play! It is. Bottom line. The game is designed for anyone ages 8 years and up – and yes, anyone 8 years and up will be able to play it. In fact, we involved some kids younger than 8 years and they were able to enjoy the fun too!

The game itself is designed around an “everyone answers a question” concept, then everyone places a wager (token) on whichever answer they think the rotating judge will select as his or her favorite. Points are then awarded accordingly. Bottom line – simple gameplay.

But the true fun of Say Anything Family Edition isn’t in how the game is played, but in playing the game itself. Coming up with funny, interesting or creative answers to all of the different questions is the goal – and once the game begins the laughter starts. Easy to play and fun for all!

No durability questions here. The game itself comes with little dry-erase tablets for answering your questions, and dry-erase markers. When the markers inevitably run dry, replace them with any other dry-erase markers you can pick up at the store. The smallest pieces are the tokens, but there really aren’t that many that they should ever be lost. No durability concerns.

Say Anything Family Edition doesn’t have any standout design features, but that isn’t necessarily a problem as the game itself isn’t based off of that. The real Visual Appeal is in watching the crowds gather and laugh as the game is played!

From a Functionality perspective Say Anything Family Edition just works. The game is intuitive to play, and easy. There are no right or wrong answers, so the entire gang can just laugh, relax and enjoy. Plus with three questions to choose from on any card, the Judge has some freedom to decide, and you can almost guarantee the answers will be different every time you play.

How much should a game cost? Less than $20. How much does Say Anything Family Edition cost? $19.99. Need we say more? Five stars!

It’s hard to call Say Anything Family Edition original when after all it is based on the first game in the series – Say Anything. North Star Games did tailor some of the questions to create a more “family-friendly-feel” to it, but things still can quickly turn adult in nature depending on the players! The truth is, the game itself is fun and the questions are original – so we still have a nice originality factor here.

Yes, there never was much doubt – Say Anything Family Edition was destined to be a five star game! First off – the price is perfect, and second off – the game is going to last. Add in that the game will play differently every time, it is easy to start and easy to finish, and it is guaranteed to keep a creative group smiling. This is a fun game to play with just a few friends or to break out at a party. And we love that it is designed with younger players in mind to keep things more on a PG level. For a fun game that will have all players using their creativity without to much competitiveness, you can’t go wrong with Say Anything Family Edition! It’s family funtastic!
