Educational Insights recently offered me the chance to review one of their best selling board games- the hilarious word game- Blurt! My kids are just beginning to get into board games and I like expanding their vocabulary so I thought we might enjoy Blurt.
Blurt! Word Board Game Review:
Blurt! is a board game of rapid word recall. Players take turns reading clues aloud, competing to blurt out the correct answer first and move ahead on the board. The first person or team to circle the board wins. It is pretty simple and yet a game that gets the brain working and you laughing.
There are also directions for a junior game- aimed at 7 to 9 year olds. My kids are 7 and almost 5 so I made a few modifications to help the game move smoothly. Instead of alternating the reading of the clues, I just did that every turn while my kids guessed the words. Then the first person to guess the correct word would role the dice to see how far they got to move. I always read the beginning clues on the card as the are more easy. My kids loved the game and sometimes my 7 year old even wants to be the reader so I get to battle with my almost 5 year old to come up with the word first. I go easy on him but I really enjoy seeing him work hard to get the right word and how proud he looks when he gets it first.
“Blurt is a great vocabulary builder for kids, a hilarious addition to adult parties, and a must for family game night.”
Blurt Review Update- Still A Great Word Game:
I just thought I would check in and say that all these years later, my kids and I still love Blurt! In fact it has gotten more fun because now I can play it with them. My kids are 10 and 8 now and they both enjoy it. Blurt is a perfect word game for family night.
I was provided with Blurt in the hopes that I would share my honest opinions. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
