Speak Out Kids vs Parents

If you want endless laughs with the family, then you need to have this hilarious game. Expect laugh-out-loud fun while wearing a mouthpiece that won’t let them shut their mouth. Parents pick from the Parents deck of cards, filled with phrases parents might say to kids such as “This playroom is a positive pigsty!” Kids get to choose from the Kids deck filled with things kids might say such as “What a bummer, brother.” Players read the phrase as best as they can to their teammates, but it’s not so easy to do as the timer counts down and the mouthpiece is hindering them from forming words correctly. The laughter continues as players try to decipher what in the world their teammate is trying to say, and must correctly guess the phrase in order to earn the card. The team with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

Available at most major retailers nationwide.  $24.99
