I recently received BLURT! as a gift for my 9 year old son. We have a decent collection of board games, but lately my son is much more interested in computer games. He immediately liked the title of the game so I was easily able to convince him to unplug for a bit. We learned that it takes 3 or more to play so I enrolled my husband to play along. It had been a while since we had a family game night - I really missed it! We had so much fun Blurting out the answers. I think my son liked the game the most because he was able to answer most questions on the easy side of the question card and challenge the adults to the harder questions. He was able to test himself on the harder questions and increased his confidence by realizing he was just as smart as his parents - on the harder challenge side of the card only :-) What I liked most about the game is it's educational in disguise. He was able to work on his spelling, comprehension, vocabulary and reading skills while playing and I was very happy to witness it all while having simple game-night fun with my son and husband.
I ordered this for my niece for her 9th birthday. It arrived BEFORE her b-day. (I was worried that it would be late ... but actually arrived in 2 business days) Not only my 9 year old niece loved it, but her older sister and parents have enjoyed playing with it also. Well worth the money. from Rita, Atlanta, GA
