You've Been Sentenced Country Music Edition Review and Giveaway 12/12/2012

I had the pleasure of reviewing You've Been Sentenced, now I have the chance to review the new version called You've Been Sentenced Country Music Edition.  I had the pleasure of receiving their latest game, “You’ve Been Sentenced!: Country Music Edition.” Once again, I’d like to thank Donald McNeill, the CEO of McNeill Designs, for sending me a free copy.  Since this edition plays the same way as the base game, we will stick to the newness of this game.

Like the base game, there are a total of 540 cards that will test your sentence structure skills.  Your goal remains the same: score as many points as you can by forming grammatically correct sentences with some or all of the ten cards that you’ll draw every round.  A sand timer is available to keep things moving and your peers will be the judge of the sentences you throw together, so be ready to attack or defend a questionable sentence when appropriate. This is the beauty of You've Been Sentenced. You play a game with your kids that is actually educational and tests their grammar skills.

This You've Been Sentenced Game is based on Country Music. You don't have to be a country music fan to enjoy the game or play it. You can make your own strange sentences to make the game both educational and enjoyable.
When you are buying your Christmas gifts this year, I know you are interested in the costs. Who knows what taxes lie beyond the new year? The game costs $29.95 which will turn some people off. However, the educational value is worth every penny. If you have the first You've Been Sentenced game, you can actually mix the two games together and play. This can enhance your gaming experience.

I love this game because it is fun and educational for my children. They have fun and learn. They are pushed in a fun way to learn. Games like this are a great educational replacement to video games that turn our children's minds into mush.
