You;ve Been Sentenced, Open to US/Canada Ends Nov.7

You've Been Sentenced game

Using a unique word deck of pentagon shaped cards containing conjugations of funny words, famous names from throughout history, familiar places, and wild cards, players have to make grammatically correct and justifiable sentences. The real fun begins when players have to read their sentences out loud and explain what they mean to the rest of players. They form the jury and vote thumbs up or down on whether the sentence and justification stand and the points are scored. 540 cards with over 2,500 words insure billions of possible sentences so the game is never repetitive and has unlimited re-play value.

The hilarity begins when each player draws ten cards and places them face down. All players flip their cards over at the same time and using one word from each card you attempt to make the best that makes some sense. The first player who thinks they have a sentence, then starts the timer. When time runs out you begin reading your sentences out loud. If your sentence makes sense you get your points, but, if it doesn't make sense you must present your reasoning to the jury and it goes to a vote.

The game is won when the first player reaches 200 pts, and this can all be done in about half an hour. You've Been Sentenced is ideally geared for ages eight and up, and I would suggest the more players you have the more fun it would be.
