This fast-paced word game is great fun for families with grade-schoolers on up. It's entertaining to see how the participants strategize their play and craft their clues, and it takes no time at all before you're shouting your own ideas at the screen. There's also plenty of opportunity for parents and kids to quiz each other with follow-up questions about clues they would have used if they'd been playing.

Though it often employs standard game-show effects like dramatic lighting, high-pressured tension, and greedy contestants, overall there's nothing too iffy about this modern-day remake of an American classic. Ironically, the show is so fun that it may inspire families to turn off the TV and tune into each other by staging their own version of the game in the car or around the dinner table.
