McNeill Designs "You've Been Sentenced" Game Review and Giveaway

        We are usually quite the game playing family.  We spend at least once a month having a friendly get together with several other families.  The kids go crazy tearing apart our house while the adults enjoy a few drinks and some games.  Sometimes the older children join in or play their own games but it is always a fun evening for everyone.  We also used to have family game night at least once a week (before Declan started getting into everything)!  This year we are hoping "Santa" brings us a few games that we can easily start playing again without Declan eating the pieces! 

     McNeill Designs allowed me the great opportunity to review one of their games for our family game night.  When I first heard the name of the game, "You've been Sentenced", I was thinking a crime scene/law game (we are into those shows).  What I discovered was a really fun, educational game that inspires learning and creativity!

     Designed for ages 8+ and 3-10 players, each person builds a sentence with as many of their cards as they can.  "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."

     We had a blast creating the most silly sentences and even showing Dane each word so he could begin learning spelling and grammar!  There are also additional category cards such as cooking that you can purchase to add a twist and change it up each time you play.  (McNeill Designs has even created a lesson plan to turn "You've Been Sentenced!" into a classroom teaching tool.)  I cannot wait until our monthly game night to share such an entertaining game with the other families in our group!

     McNeill Designs has been recognized and received several national awards including:  PTPA Seal of Approval, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio - Gold Seal Award, Creative Child Magazine - Seal of Excellence, Dr. Toy Best Products, Tillywig Award, National Parenting Seal of Approval, iParenting Media Hot Product Award, FAO Schwarz Toy Winner, Spewgie Award, Best Family Fun Game, George Lucas Educational Foundation's Edutopia magazine, Hot Media for Educator, and Mr. Dad Seal of Approval.  Pretty awesome list huh?!

Cost:  $24.95 ($7.95 extra cards)
Available to purchase:  McNeill Designs
Recommendation:  I will be investing in this game as a gift for others this holiday!  Like I said I cannot wait to share this with others and play with my extended family this Christmas, it was so much fun (while sneaking in the learning)!
