Product Description

From the makers of the award-winning Wits & Wagers comes the next great party game -- Say Anything. Say Anything is a light-hearted game about what you and your friends think. For instance, "What's the best movie of all time?" or "If I could have a BIG anything, what would it be?" So dig deep into your heart or just come up with something witty -- this is your chance to Say Anything!

Say Anything combines the best elements of Wits & Wagers and Apples to Apples.

  1. Ask any question from the card you draw, such as:
    • What's the best movie of all time?
    • If I could have a BIG anything, what would it be?
    • What would be the coolest thing to have at a mansion?
    • Who’s the most overrated band of all time?
    • What’s the worst thing to say to a cop after getting pulled over?
  2. Everyone else writes an answer and turns it face-up.
  3. Secretly choose your favorite of these answers. Then everyone tries to guess which one you picked.

The perfect gift to buy for your non-gaming family and friends
May 30, 2012

The designer of the hugely successful party-trivia game Wits & Wagers teamed up with Satish Pillalamarri to create the fantastic Say Anything (2008), the next big party game hit from North Star. Just like its predecessor, it went on to win a string of awards. It's also a party game, but borrowed elements from Wits & Wagers that helped make it stand apart from most traditional party games.

In Say Anything, players write answers to a question asked by another player, and score points by trying to guess which of the answers they think he'll pick. Think: Apples to Apples meets Balderdash meets Wits & Wagers. Questions are ones like these: "What would be the dumbest thing to say in a job interview?" "What would be the weirdest thing to collect?" "What's the most important quality a person can have?" Now comes the fun part: Can you think of an answer that the person whose turn it is might pick as the best one? And when everyone has written their answers, can you guess which one you think he'll pick once you see the answers others have written? This bidding/guessing mechanic keeps everyone in the game, and is what makes the game fun for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Say Anything is flexible, very interactive, highly social, and once again it has a huge fun element. Highly recommended.

Better than Apples to Apples
May 17, 2011

I have owned this game for quite awhile but, I waited to review to see if the game had staying power. The answer is a definte yes. Like Apples to Apples the game is very easy to teach but, with the improvement that you come up with your own answer and bet on the winning answer. This is a important improvement because in Apples to Apples you can get into the bad postion of having terrible cards. With the betting element even if you can't come up with a good answer you can still earn points but making good bets. The game is also well thought out by limiting the total you can earn during a round to three points. This means no one can run away with the game.

Another plus of Say Anything is that you can play it with people who don't know each other that well and still have a great time which I have done. I have found that I do perfer playing the game with a smaller group which makes it easier to place better bets. With larger groups sometimes there are too many good choices still, the game is more about fun than winnings.

There is only one minor drawback. When I got the game some of the dry erase markers didn't work. Insteading of writing the company I bought new ones at Staples. The plus though in doing that is I was able to get color markers that matched for the most part match the game colors. I think it adds an additional fun element to the game.

Say Anything though is such a fun game that continues to be fun game that it can be played over and over again. Using the markers and dry erase boards is also better idea then paper that I won't take points off for the marker problem.

What's not to like
January 22, 2011

I am looking at Say Anything a party game by North Star Games. A game designed by the owner and well known Geek about town Dominic Crapuchettes (with his partner Satish Pillalamarri)

It’s a game for 3 to 8 players that can be played in around 30 minutes. The box says it for 13+ but I have played it with much younger than that. I would say from about 6 or 7.

It must be said it does not get off to a good start when you see the box. Sorry Dom but it is a really cheesy looking box. It looks like the kind of product you find in the UK in somewhere called a pound shop. Where everything costs £1. The one thing I can say in the box’s favour is that it is loud and distinct. You will notice it.

When you open the box you will find a one page sheet of rules. (At least my version did) It is a pretty simple game to understand. The box says 2 minutes to explain and that is probably the maximum time it will take.

There is a good useful box insert and on top of that you will find the scorecard. The game lasts 12 rounds and players record their scores, round by round here. Across the top are the round numbers and on the far right a column for total points. Most points wins. (I did not need to write that surely ) Down the left side are 8 icons, each player at the beginning of the game chooses an icon and colour, their scores go along here. The scores are written on the board with a dry erasable pen.

Each player gets a blank answer board of matching icon to the one they choose. These too are erasable.

Each player also gets two tokens with their icons on them. In Say Anything you don’t just guess an answer to a trivia question. You get to bet on the answers and you don’t have to pick your own.

You get a set of pens to write with. There was a bit of a problem with some of them drying up and being unusable. (I believe this is no longer a problem) Dom being the top man he is will replace pens that don’t work.

As I have several games that use dry erase pens, I just bought a set from a stationers for myself.

There are 80 question cards containing 400 questions. If that does not sound a lot don’t worry it’s not a traditional trivia game. The questions have no set answers.

Finally and most importantly you get the Select-o-matic 5000. You definitely could not play the game without this. It’s a round piece of card, on one side it has a clock style hand that can be moved around to point at any of the player icons.

So how do all these bits come together to make a game?

  • Well you all pick an icon and take the matching answer boards and tokens.
  • Choose a starting player
  • The starting player picks a card and asks any question from it
  • The other players all write on their boards a possible answer and reveal them
  • In case of more than one player giving the same answer all but first person to reveal has to change their answer
  • The player who asked the question secretly chooses which answer they prefer and use the Select-o-matic 5000 to record it
  • The other players then use their tokens to bet on which answer they think the player who asked the question will choose
  • The selection is then revealed and points given out
  • 1 point for the person whose answer was picked
  • 1 point for each token on the chosen answer, goes to the tokens owner
  • The player who asked the question gets a point for every token on the answer they choose, up to a maximum of 3 points.
  • Write all the points onto the score board and pass the questions on to the next player
  • Repeat for 12 rounds

    What do I think of the game?

    It’s a lot of fun. It’s easy and it’s quick. This is the most popular party game in my house. My wife and daughter are not great gamers but this is one I can always get them to play.

    This game is not exactly the best game ever made, it’s not even the best party game (although it is a very good one) but it’s real strength is that it is a game that absolutely anyone can play. The idea is so simple and it can be explained so quickly that from young kids to grand parents everyone can play.

    The questions all have subjective answers so there is no ‘right’ answer. Examples of questions are:

    What’s the sappiest love song ever?
    What does the world need more of?

    And many, many more.

    The other thing that I find so interesting is how this game changes depending on who you play it with. Play it with all adults and it’s a very different experience than if you play with children. Playing it with people you know really well is very different from playing with people you don’t know.

    So to sum up. A quick, fun game that can be played with anyone.

    Only one question remains, why don’t you have a copy?
