Out of the Box Games Review...

Our family loves to play games, so when we were given the opportunity to test Out of the Box games we were super excited. This is the game we got to try out:
We have played this game several times and the last month and I'm pretty sure its going to become a staple in our family game night repertoire. Everyone who has played it has loved it! This is one of those quick-thinking board games and the idea is to get more letters pulled to your team's side of the "street" by thinking of a word from a certain category that includes the most available letters. It sounds a lot easier than it is though...once that timer starts dwindling you are sometimes hard pressed to even think of any word from the chosen category!

This game has already provided our family with hours of fun and I'm sure will continue to every time we play boardgames. It is marketed for ages 12+, but there is a junior version for younger kiddos. Word on the Street takes minutes to learn, each game lasts about 20-30 minutes and retails for $24.99.
Although this game is loads of fun it also is very improves vocabulary, promotes spelling skills, develops interpersonal skills, promotes interaction and motivates players. It has won the Major Fun Award. ABCD Diaries gives Word on the Street and A+ for all the gamers in your family! Thanks, Out of the Box games for letting us test this fun-filled game!!

  1. I'm certain that there have been times in my life when I've said something that I thought was humorous, but which actually offended someone. There are times when someone has called me out for being thoughtless or insensitive and I have reacted defensively. There have been times when I should have said I was sorry, but - because of my defensiveness, or my pride, or my embarrassment - I didn't. But I would like to believe that, in each of those cases, though I was unable to step up and own my mistakes, I spent countless hours in private reviewing them, imagining do-overs, and preparing myself to act differently in the future.
