We have received this game free of charge, but our fun and opinions are 100% authentic.
The last few weekends have been very fun in our house and super exhausting! My brother-in-law’s family was in a process of moving from California to Illinois over the last few months and between kids starting a new school, the house buying process, and the actual move, it was a CRAZY TOWN! To help the family, we have been housing the kids in our house on weekends and that brought the total of non-adults to 5 (6 if you include my husband)!
While some of you, my readers, are accustom to a full house with this many people, it was a totally new experience for me – lots of takeouts, loads of dishes, and very expensive outings. Yes, while our minivan still could fit 7 people, any kind of trip came out not-so-cheap.
That is why the last weekend we decided to just stay home, grab some snacks, and enjoy peace and quiet. How can it be quiet with 5 kids in the house? I didn’t know it was possible until this game landed on my doorsteps.
Do you mean, NO TALKING?
What are the rules? Think charades, but with less talking (even better).
Players in Speechless take turns being the “presenter”. The Presenter will act out 6 words, trying to get the other players to correctly guess what word they are acting out. They only have 90 seconds to do this! In Speechless, cards are separated into 3 decks by color and difficulty. Players score 2 points for guessing the correct word! However, if a player did not guess the correct word, but at least one other player made the same incorrect guess, all players with the same guess score 1 point!
While it seemed very easy (even the neighbors’ kids decided to join our party), it really wasn’t as such – how can you act out a sail? A tank? A pothole?
It was very exciting to see kids’ personalities shine through the art of acting. Yet some managed to score lots of points while others seemed rather disappointed.
A love this quiet game – how absolutely peaceful yet entertaining it can get and how absolutely addictive it is.
SPEECHLESS is hitting the shelves soon. It is a great additional to family entertainment product by Arcane Wonders. Speechless is the fourth game in the Dice Towers Essentials Line. The Dice Tower Essentials Line is composed of games that are believed to be essential for any gamer’s collection.
