Our family plays a lot of board games, and we now have a new family favorite! It's called You've Been Sentenced, produced by McNeill Designs; and it makes building sentences fun! Even the kids love this game, and have fun trying to make a sentence!
The object of the game is to make a sentence that is grammatically correct and makes sense (the hardest part of the game :) This game often turns hilarious, and some of the sentences we have made stretch the limits of believability. For example, the 9 year-old came up with this one: "The Aliens Partied Six Feet Under".
And 15 year-old E made this:
|Christopher Columbus Ate Sloppy Snakes Upon The Rocks of New Mexico, Thinking Green!|
Yep, that one definitely was a little bit overboard! One of my favorite things with this game is that it never gets boring or repetitive. There are over 2,500 individual words, so you never end up with the same words or sentences! No matter how many times you play, it's always fresh and fun!

|E builds a sentence|
|C helps out her younger sister!|
This game is a lot of fun for people of all ages. Everyone in our family loves it. After we had played it a few times, I heard 9 year-old M remark to her sister "I love playing this game". And the best part is, they're learning, whether they realize it or not! By playing You've Been Sentenced, they are learning how to put words together, build sentences, be creative, and improve their grammar.
