I love board games! I have a large closet dedicated to just them…. we have played them as a family for years and enjoy the old ones as much as a new one! This past weekend, Christmas Day actually, myself, hubby Al, out son Justin ,and Kinship Partner Chance all had a fun time playing a great game of BLURT!
The beauty of this game is that it takes all of 10 seconds to learn. There are not pages and pages of rules and maneuvers…. it is simply a nice looking board game, a box of cards that hold your clues – all I had to do was add people.
I had people.
So you take turns being the reader and read a card clue something like this: *A strip of leather or cloth that goes around your waste to hold clothes up…..
Then the first person to shout (well you don’t have to shout – but you would be surprised how many do!) the correct answer wins. It sounds simple and in a way it is…. but there are harder cards, and sometimes you get so caught up in the excitement and the laughter of the game…. you forget what the word could be…. and then it really gets crazy!
This is a game that is wonderful to play with a mix of ages…. young or old… everyone really has a good time with BLURT! I know I did.
*The answer: A belt!
