Winners At Last!
December 25, 2005
Two years ago, I submitted a review of "25 Words Or Less," and mentioned that our family and another always play the game on Christmas Day. It's a "girls against the guys" competition, and every year we have ever played, the girls have won.

I am writing again this year because at long last, after 10 years, the guys finally won! Yep, this year was our year, and it's hard to believe that today we finally ended our losing streak.

I hope that this doesn't sound like gloating, and my main reason for writing again is to repeat my statement from 2 years ago that "25 Words Or Less" is a great game - win or lose! Well, maybe even greater when you win!

Fun Despite Always Losing
December 24, 2003

We play this game every Christmas with another family, girls against guys. The losing streak of the latter is legend around these parts, but today - Christmas Day 2003 - we're determined to change that!

One funny story of our history with the game is that years ago, one of the boys, about 8 years old at the time - gave as a clue for 'Brooke Shields' the word 'actress' (a pretty broad hint, wouldn't you say?). It was at a crucial time in the game, and none of us have ever forgotten it. My wife is even planning on framing the card and putting it on our wall.

Needless to say, I recommend this game highly, and we have enjoyed it immensely over the years. And I hope that the men out there have more success against your ladies than we have!

Great Game, one small issue....
November 29, 2002

We really enjoy this game. However, one issue that came up that was not addressed in the rules was homonyms. For example, a word was 'tow' and the clue giver used 'stubbed' as the clue and the guesser said 'toe'. Although it sounded the same, the meaning was clearly different. Should that count?
