5.0 out of 5 stars Low cunning and red wine triumph!, 28 Dec 2009
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Last Word - The Game (Toy)
Our Christmas games have ranged from the mindlessly excellent (Pass the Bomb) to the dreadful (Trivial Pursuit - Millennium edition), and this unquestionably fits in the former category. As a post-dinner cause of argument, shouting, cheating and invention of words (animal beginning with N - 'Nelephant') it is challenged only by classic games like cheat.

My own tactic of thinking of a few words, saying nothing and hanging on until I thought we were within a reasonable time of the buzzer going off was correctly denounced as excessively competitive and close to cheating. A mixture of cabernet sauvignon and low tactical cunning was sufficient to win!

On recommendation for the makers, everyone in my family now calls this 'The Shouting Game' which seems a much better and more accurate assessment of how it is played.

Recommended!

Yes! And the addition of copious wine for the ovr18s will even up the odds for the younger participants
