I was really excited about this game but honestly it wasn't nearly as fun or funny to play as I expected. First, the ages are misleading because our daughter is almost 8, very bright, and it was too difficult for her. We did the junior version however because we are a wide age range playing it made it playable for her but way to easy for us. In the end we weren't legitimately competing because we had to hold off answering so she could have a chance. Second, it turned out to not be as fast paced and exciting to play but rather more thought provoking. I highly doubt we will be taking it off our shelves anxiously any time soon.

    Comments about Educational Insights Blurt! Vocabulary Building Board Game:

    Blurt comes with the playing board, box of questions, and several colored game tokens. You have three players or up to twelve players. The object of the game is to be the first to move your token all the way around the board. You achieve this by guessing the correct word on the cards. You are given a clue to what the word is, and then you get to "blurt" out whatever pops into your head. The first person to guess the correct word will win the points and get to move their token. I was surprised at how many my kids knew. And even when they guessed wrong it was hilarious to hear some of the things they came up with. By the end of the game, they had learned at least twenty new words and we all laughed so hard our sides hurt. Its a great way to have fun and still learn something. This is an excellent games for kids and adults alike and would make an excellent gift.

    Complimentary product received.

      Comments about Educational Insights Blurt! Vocabulary Building Board Game:

      This game is a lot of fun! It's easy to play, and it also has various ways to play the game to make it easier or more difficult. This can be played with children or adults. The only con to this game is that it requires at least 3 players. My 8 year old son and I are the ones who typically play games, so it was tricky to find someone else to play with us. When we brought it to a friend's house to try it out, we had a great time!

        Comments about Educational Insights Blurt! Vocabulary Building Board Game:

        BLURT! is very easy to set up and play without a lot of direction. I got this game for my 10 year old niece; she had the instructions read and was ready to play in a matter of minutes. We played as a family and it was evident that the adults had to hold back a bit to allow the younger ones time to BLURT! because the words do vary in difficulty. That being said, the game moved quickly and heald everyone's attention. We played two rounds of the game in less than an hour, and have quite a few good laughs during that time! My recommendation is for children to play together or adults play together to keep the challenge level fair. BLURT! Is a great game to help improve children's vocabulary while having fun!

          We have finally found a game that our 7 year old asks to play again and again! BLURT is absolutely fantastic-- starting with the simple rules, to the different levels of play. My son was able to play on the 'easy' level and was engaged throughout. It is refreshing to find an educational game that keeps a child's attention and is appropriate for multi-age play. We love that it promotes creative thinking and vocabulary growth. Highly recommend this to anyone who loves word games and friendly competition.

            What a great game. It not only is entertaining, it strengthens your child's learning when you play it. I play it with three kids ages 13, 12 and 10. They loved it. I loved that they were making comments about learning the words/definitions at school. There is nothing better then them learning while playing even when they do not realize it.

              Comments about Educational Insights Blurt! Vocabulary Building Board Game:

              Blurt was exciting from beginning to end. It was quick and easy to play, even for someone who has never played...no practice round needed! The rules are simple and can be adapted depending on the number of players and ages. What a bonus that this game is great for anyone reading (younger if someone reads the card to them) and right up to adults. A quick explanation is that you take turns reading the definition of a word on a card chosen, and the other players then proceed to blurt out the word being defined. The pressure is on and the things that get blurted out can be hilarious, but to advance on the board you have to be to be both fast and right. There are fun twists that can change the game in an instant. Anyone can win at any time!! My family often talks about this game the next day laughing about what someone blurted out during the game. I especially loved that this game is not only fast and fun, but also educational. What a way to learn vocabulary!! We will be playing it regularly for this added bonus!

                Comments about Educational Insights Blurt! Vocabulary Building Board Game:

                This is an amazing vocabulary builder and the kids won't even know they are learning while playing. I have an 8 and 6 year old girl, and they love this game. I really like how each card has an easy side and a hard side so that we can play as adults or with the kids and they can move up as they get older. I wish that the game board was a little longer, with only 2 or 3 players the game ends very quickly. Of course you can also just play with the cards and not use the board at all if you were on the go. I also wish there was a refil pack with different themes and skill levels. Maybe one for adults and one for kids. We are going to blow through the first box in no time. We really enjoy how engaging the game is and recommend it highly!

                      This is a great word game, great for enhancing simple vocabulary. with a larger group it can get a little loud, but that just adds to the fun and laughs. I would recommend this game, for family night fun. Great when playing with multiple age groups.
