My husband and I have been married for 8 years and we've always kind of been loaners. We occasionally hang out with my best friend from high school and her husband, but it's usually just us. Then a few months ago something new happened - my husband made a friend. Our families get together every few weeks to eat dinner and play games. It's been really fun and has given us the opportunity to break out all of the games that have been sitting dormant in our closet for years.
Right now we are loving Truth Be Told, Likewise, and Last Word from Buffalo Games.
In Truth Be Told the host draws a question such as "Truth Be told, I've always dreamed about ..." Then the host writes a truthful answer on the card such as, "I've always dreamed about being a princess at Disneyland." Then all of the other players make up fake answers to the question. The players then have to guess which answer is the correct one.
We played this game once with my family and a couple of times with our new friends. It was fun in both settings. When we played the game with my parents and siblings everyone knew each other so well, that it was hard! A lot of the "fake" answers were true and it took a long time for anyone to win. When we played with our friends we didn't know them very well. The game went fast but it was hilarious! It was a fun way to get to know them.
In Likewise there are Description Cards and Subject Cards. One of each card is turned over and players have to come up with a word that describes the pairing. So if the Description said Exotic, and the Subject said Cartoon Character, then players would have to write down an Exotic Cartoon Character - such as Marvin the Martian or the Tasmanian Devil. If players match they get a point.
This game was fun, but kind of challenging. Some of the pairings just make no sense and it's hard to come up with an answer. Even though some rounds can be difficult, those are usually the rounds that are the most fun.
Last Word is my favorite of the 3 games. Players are given a subject and a letter and everyone blurts out answers until the timer runs out. For example if the subject was "Countries" and the Letter was "P", players could say Peru, Pakistan, Paraguay, Portugal, Poland, etc. until the timer ran out. The last person to say a word before the timer goes off wins the round.
What makes this game really fun is that the timer goes off randomly, so you really have to hurry to get your words in. Another feature I love is that the game is for 2 plus players - which means no friends needed.
To Buy - Each of the games retail for just $24.95 and can be purchased at Buffalo Games.com. They are great party games and definitely worth checking out.
