Hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend. We had my daughter and son-in-law over for a cookout. After we ate lunch, my daughter, son and I played a super-fun new game that I received to review last week!
We opened the box and set up the board - it's BIG! There are several different types of cards and several decks of trivia cards as well. (more about these cards below) We started by reading the instructions and picking our colored pawns for playing. Then David (he was the Game Czar!) chose identity cards for each of us. These cards determine each player's occupation, salary, family members and vehicle for the game. I was not too happy with my card - he got me good!
We love a good board game and this one didn't disappoint! We laughed a lot during the game, and had a great time playing. I was surprised that I knew a good number of the trivia questions (but not always the ones I got on my turn, ha ha!) I think our game took about an hour to play before Katie was declared the winner. David came in second place and Mom came in last - wahh!
We can't wait to play again - it was so much fun and the trivia questions are great! We all learned things while playing this game. Some of the questions we encountered were about religion, historical events and figures, Supreme Court cases, and the Constitution.
Oh, and the "Social Justice" cards are hilarious! They show you how ridiculous an intrusive government is to our society, and teach players about modern day tyranny. The "Disappoint Big Brother" cards represent ways "We the People" can restore America. This game WILL spark conversations about our government and changes that are needed! My kids and I already talk about that often, but the game really encourages discussion!
If you homeschool, this makes a great history resource. Heck, even if you DON'T homeschool, it's great! It's meant for 3 - 8 players, and ages 15 and up. David is 12 and he surprised me with how many trivia questions he could answer. So I think some younger kids would do just fine playing this game! Oh, and another great thing - this game is MADE IN THE USA!
