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.

Say Anything is a party game about guessing what someone else will say.Watch the video!
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.
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.
We play party games a lot with our family and friends (Pictionary, Scrabble, Cranium, Apples to Apples) and Say Anything is, by far, our favorite. It is so wonderful - it inspires great conversations (What's the Best Song Ever?) and lots of laughter.
Say Anything is very easy to teach, which makes it very easy to get new people into the game. We previously loved Apples to Apples but it is getting a little old now. I also get a little frustrated with the cards in my hand not being a good match - but with Say Anything you get to make up your own response so it's much more creative and satisfying. Plus Say Anything leads to some of the funniest moments in gaming history. We literally fall into a laughing session several times during each game (of course, we're a silly bunch to begin with).
The only problem we had is that some of the dry erase pens - new out of the box - did not work, but I contacted customer service and they sent a whole new pack out right away (and a Twizzler... which was weird, but tasty).
