You’ve been Sentenced Country Music Edition Review and Giveaway!

It is once again time to do a review about one of my family’s favorite games!  You’ve Been Sentenced!  This time we got to play the Country Music Edition.

I really love the McNeill Designs games for my family.  They are very educational and fun.  Once my kids learned that I would get to review another version of You’ve Been Sentenced they couldn’t wait for the game to arrive.  As soon as we got it we had to play it that night.  We have played it for every game night since then also.

This game is recommended for ages 8 and up.  I have a 9 year old and 6 year old who both love to play it.  I just help out my 6 year old when he can’t figure out what the words are.  This game is helping him learn to read new words and helps my 9 year old learn how sentence structure works.  Both of these things are great because I can use this game as a tool for when I homeschool.

The quick play of this game is….

  • Everyone draws 10 cards face down.
  • When everyone is ready, turn your cards over and spread them out on the table in front of you. ..

As you can see in the above picture there are also Wild Cards where you can pick your own thing to use.  My husband usually picks other bands besides Country ones because he doesn’t know who the people are.  I find it funny because I can tell you who every person is on the cards.  I love Country music.

  • Using the words on the cards, build the best sentence you can that is both grammatically correct and makes some sort of sense. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE ALL 10 CARDS!

 

You can see my sentence above and see I used only 8 of my cards.  You can click the picture to view the sentence better.

  • The first person done starts the timer. Once you start the timer, you can’t touch your cards. Everyone else can until the timer runs out.
  • When time is up, if you started the timer, read your sentence to the other players.
  • If no one objects to the grammar or sensibility, you get the points for the words used in your sentence.
  • If someone Objects, explain and defend your sentence. Everyone other than the objector and defender then votes. Majority thumbs-up, you get the points. Thumbs-down… Zero points. Ties go to you, and you get the points.
  • Next person clockwise takes their turn. When everyone has read and voted on the sentences, everyone discards their hand, draws 10 new cards, and starts a new round.
  • First person with the highest score over 200 at the end of a round, WINS! (taken from the McNeill Website here.)

Most of the time we don’t really time our games just because our 6 year old can’t do a sentence fast enough to beat a timer.  We will keep score when we play sometimes…

So when I asked my kids what they thought about the Country Music Edition my 9 year old daughter said “Awesome!”  My 6 year old son said “Love it and it is awesome!” My 3 year old of course doesn’t play but he does watch us while we play.

So where can you find this “Awesome” game?  You can get it right from the McNeill site for $29.95 or on Amazon.

The more exciting news is that I can give one lucky reader a chance to get the Country Music Edition for free when you do one of the following…
