"You've Been Sentenced!" Game Review & Giveaway CLOSED

“The latest in the evolution of games, “You've been Sentenced!” is the first game in history to really turn making sentences into a very funny, playable, and challenging game. Using a unique word deck of pentagon shaped cards containing conjugations of funny words, famous names from throughout history, familiar places, and wild cards, players have to make grammatically correct and justifiable sentences. 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. 540 cards with over 2,500 words insure billions of possible sentences so the game is never repetitive and has unlimited re-play value.”


My family loves board games. We even like to have friends over to have board game nights! We were super excited to have the chance to try out “You’ve Been Sentenced!”.

Since Cooper is too young for this game, I took it to a family event and played it with a couple of my younger nieces and nephews (between the ages of 10 and 14). We had so much fun! Some of our sentences were so funny, we were literally rolling on the floor laughing so hard!

Another great thing about this game is that a portion of each retail sale of "You’ve been Sentenced!" goes to fight illiteracy in the USA through the not-for-profit organization Success Won’t Wait, Inc. Founded in 2002, the organization’s mission is to encourage reading, particularly by children. For more information about Success Won’t Wait and its literacy programs, please visit http://www.successwontwait.org/.

I would highly recommend this game to anyone who loves to play board games. It is guaranteed to be a load of fun, no matter what your age!


BUY IT! You can purchase your own “You’ve Been Sentenced!” here for just $24.95.

WIN IT! One lucky reader will win their own “You’ve Been Sentenced!”!

I think Twisted Fish would be a big hit with my grandson. He would love the silly pictures and his mathematical mind would like the challenge.

Wheel of Chore-ture sounds fun for our family because we have children of all ages in the house (2 - 17), and chores are always on the agenda, but not much loved. ;)

My family likes card games. Twisted Fish would be fun for us because it's an old favorite with some interesting changes.

Twisted fish - Really the only other game they offer. Although it would be funny to give my 13yr daughter the Chore-ture for christmas.
