For Older Girls – Say Anything
Say Anything is an Award Winning Social Board Game. Say Anything is a fun, light-hearted Canadian party and family game about what you and your friends really think!
Great as an ice-breaker or among girls or guys who’ve known each other for years. Simple rules, maximum hysteria!
Say Anything combines the best elements of the Wits & Wagers and Apples to Apples board games.
- Ask any question from the card you draw, such as:
- What’s the best movie of all time?
- What would be the coolest thing to have at a mansion?
- Who’s the most overrated band of all time?
- What’s the worst thing to say to a cop after getting pulled over?
- Everyone else writes an answer and turns it face-up.
- Secretly choose your favourite of these answers. Then everyone tries to guess which one you picked
So, What do you really think?
Say Anything uses a simple scoring system: After each player lays out her answer (with duplicates being replaced at the judge’s discretion), the judge secretly chooses one of the answers.
Each player then places two coloured tokens on any of the answers, including her own, splitting the tokens over two answers if desired. After the judge reveals his pick, anyone who placed a token on that answers scores one point, as does the player who wrote the answer.
The judge scores one point for each token on an answer up to a maximum of three. The judge position rotates after each round, and after a certain number of rounds, the player with the most points wins.
Winning, however, is beside the point because the fun comes from creating a good answer and seeing how people react to it!
