If you’re a family that loves games and word play, then you’ll want to check out Mad Libs: The Game. We think it’s a blast!
Mad Libs: The Game
In Mad Libs: The Game, players are dealt word cards. Each word card has the word in as many part of speech variations as possible — verb, adverb, adjective, or noun. Below you’ll see the options for the word Astonish:
To play the Mad Libs game, every player uses the word cards in his or her hand to complete the Sentence Card. Sentence Cards are famous or classic sayings such as the one below which is: Eat, _____, and be ______, for tomorrow we _______.
Each player must vote by pointing a finger at the person who came up with their favorite (silliest) sentence.
Color coding helps kids figure out which part of speech will fit in the sentence card. (See how the verb blank is green and the adjective blank is blue?)
The winner with the most votes wins the Sentence Card. The first player to win three Sentence Cards wins the game. (Unless you’re like us and want to keep playing until forever.)
So yes, it’s goofy and funny and great family time.
Even our dog loves it. 🙂
