Did you love Mad Libs as a kid? I’m raising my hand.
And, if we’re being honest here, I love them as much now as I did back then!
So, when I heard that there is a Mad Libs The Game, I had to check it out.
Mad Libs The Game: Laughter Guaranteed!
This post is part of my Growing List of My Little Poppies Game Reviews. Slowly but surely, I am making my way through our game closet and sharing our thoughts. Stay tuned for more posts in this series!
Your kids will love this Mad Libs Game
Mad Libs The Game is hilarious! The game is recommended for 3-8 players. The game is easy to setup and explain, and fun to play.
- Shuffle the deck of Word Cards and deal 7 to each player and then place the deck in the center of the table.
- Shuffle the deck of Sentence Cards and place the deck in the middle of the playing space, near the deck of Word Cards.
How to play:
Mad Libs The Game involves a series of rounds.
Each round consists of the following:
- Reveal a Sentence Card
- Each player chooses a Word Card from their hand to fit the Sentence Card
- Read the sentences
- Vote by pointing
- Award points
- Draw hands back to seven cards
- Repeat until there is a winner
The game continues until one player earns three points and wins the game.
Learn while you laugh with The Mad Libs Game
I love stealth learning and Mad Libs has always been one of my go-to stealth learning strategies. Yes, your kids will act like little goofs. Yes, they will use potty humor.
But… they will be learning while they are laughing!
