My 15 year old son and I played this game and we found ourselves on the floor laughing hysterically! It is a simple concept and an easy game to learn to play. I like that there isn't a bunch of little pieces involved that could end up getting lost or misplaced. Just cards that have over 600 phrases to guess, a card holder, and the sand hourglass for keeping time. Each correctly guessed phrase is a point and you play to 30 points to win. It is challenging but so much fun to play. I think it would be even more fun to play in a group as apposed to just two people playing. I would definitely recommend this game for any party or get together with family or friends! Just be ready to laugh to the point of crying.

Fun, but can be very hard. I bought this for my daughter so we, as a family, could play it. Some of the cards are really easy and take seconds to figure out. There are a few that were pretty hard and took forever. I am not one to give up so we sat there for who knows how long trying to figure out some of these. There was one we came across that I did finally give up on. Neither of us could figure it out. I don't want to give anything away, so I won't post exactly what it was, but there was a word that made no sense at all. Even after looking at the answer we couldn't figure out how that was the answer. It in no way sounded like or resembled the word in the answer.

We don't play this in teams because we only have 3 people playing. We kind of made up our own rules. What we do is one person is in charge of the cards and answers for 1 round. We use 3 cards like you should, and the other two race to see who can get it right first. If we get it right, we keep the card. Then after the three cards are figured out, the next person is in charge of the cards and the other two race. We just keep doing this until we feel like stopping.

The pictures on this listing show two different timers, an hourglass time and a dial timer. Our game came with the hourglass, but we don't even use it. I don't think there is enough time to figure out some of these if they were timed. Overall, I think it's a really fun game and definitely gets you to think. We really enjoy this.

Fun Family Game

By SweetSarahGirlie

Pros

  • fun for entire family
  • High quality

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Mad Gab Game:

      This game is a great choice if you're looking for something fun for the entire family. The concept is pretty simple...read a string of actual words that make no sense when grouped together and try to figure out what the correct phrase is supposed to be. For example "Ace Care Remove Me" would be shown on the card and the correct answer would be "A Scary Movie". Be prepared for lots of laughs as you enjoy watching others attempt to figure out what the answer is. The box says ages 10+ which is pretty right on. I have a very intelligent 7 yr old that struggled a bit but still enjoyed playing with the family in teams. Overall I highly recommend this product!

      Family fun night

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Mad Gab Game:

      I loved this game and so did the entire family. Not only was it tons of fun but we laughed so much while playing it was nice just spending time with the kids and enjoying their company. They loved the game and thought it was so funny. It was a game that everyone actually liked playing and with 7 people that is not an easy feat. Not to mention you can play with as many or as few people as you want as long as you have at least 2 you can have fun with this game and the more the merrier. Can't wait to play with the kids again this weekend. I received this product as a free sample but the review was strictly my own opinion after trying out the game and I am so glad that I did. Great family game.

          Comments about Mattel 1001134 Mad Gab Game:

          My teenager - like many teenagers - was unenthusiastic and skeptical that this game would be any fun. I believe her words were "seems lame" after we received it in the mail to review. Boy was she wrong! After a little effort to read and understand the instructions, hours of hilarity ensued. This game is at times a bit challenging, but that only added to the fun! This is a great game for teens and adults alike. We will definitely add this to our "family game night" rotation!

              This game is challenging. I thought that it would be good for a family game night. It was a little harder for my 9 year old to get some of them but we had fun regardless. We adapted the rules to fit for us to be able to play. The only complaint that we had was that the deck could have been a little bit bigger.

                  Ok people, if you like to spend a fun night with family and friends laughing hysterically, this is the game for you. Putting strange sounds together to make a well known saying or phrase, is the name of the game here. You'll sound silly reading this stuff, and it sounds funny when you hear it, but that's the whole idea...it's all part of the fun.

                      We recently had some family visit from out of town and knowing how much we all love board games I thought it was the perfect time to try out Mad Gab. We certainly were not disappointed. It only took a few minutes to read through the user-friendly instructions and we were off on a gaming adventure. From the first turn to the last we were laughing so hard our sides were aching! We had a big group ranging in age from 6 up to 74, and everyone was able to join in the fun. Regardless of who's team was "up to bat" at the moment it was highly entertaining for the whole gang. I truly can't remember a time when I have laughed so hard and had so much fun playing a game. I will recommend this game to anyone with a highly developed funny bone. You will not be disappointed with the fun that this game delivers!

                              This game would probably be better for an older age group than the suggested starting of 10 years, but it was fine after everything was explained. Having said that, hysterical laughter flowed throughout the house trying to solve what your teammate is saying. Plus, if your team cannot solve the saying...you can see the opposing team just ready to steal your phrase!! They looked like they were sitting on pins and needles!! Just like it says, it's not what you say...it's what you hear!! As well as "how you say it!". This is a great game and my family had a blast!
