BGWS 062 - Word on the Street
On this episode of Board Games with Scott, I take a look at Word on the Street. I got a review copy of this game from Out of the Box, and found the game to be a fun experience (and I got my partner to play it with me, which is always a bonus)!

I'm canceling your plexiglas play. You spelled it wrong!

You'll find after you play this game several times with groups that part of the challenge it just getting everyone to agree on a word within the short time constraint allowed.

I'm voting in favor of Scott here. Apparently, www.dictionary.com lists both spellings.

A nice little review. I do think that Out of the Box games does come up with some rather nice little games. Apples to Apples in my heart is still the best party game when everyone is dead tired around 1am. We are all full of the giggles.

It is always nice to get someone to play games with you. My sweetie doesn't like vs. games mostly co-ops so that limits what we play. Though we play alot of Arkham Horror and that I really like.

hi, im new to the new board gaming culture and, up into recently, Clue was my favorite board game. I knew nothing of games that weren't available at Target or WalMart. Then I downloaded Carcassonne on the Xbox and had quite a bit of fun playing it. I soon found out that it was a board game and went in search of it. Not surprisingly, i couldn't find it where i normally picked up my games. Then I broke out the yellow pages and found a comic book shop (one of the last places i would have had looked) that had a copy. Once there, I found a plethora of games that I never heard of. After looking around, I found the game I was looking for and was talked into a few card games by the salesman there. (Zombie Fluxx, Family Business, and Munchkin) I took them all over to a friends house for the weekend and boy was I surprised. The four of use sat around and laughed and had a great time. (And to think I used to call them "bored" games.) I found the new games strategic and interesting and decided that I had to have more. The friend that I was visiting had a copy of Risk with a thick layer of dust and said that him and his brother used to play all the time but that it had been ages since he had even thought about it. After the hour we spent going over the rules, we talked our significant others into joining us and we soon all became captivated. There were arguments over the rules, staring matches when others invaded our conquered continents, and laughter when we would ally together to drive some insane force back into their continent. When all was said and done, and the ruler of the world declared, we noticed that we had spent three hours playing and that the movie we were going to go see had already started. We couldn't believe that we had lost track of time like that. But, the shock soon wore off when I declared a rematch and we were soon back in the action. Since that great night, I have been trying to do research in hopes of finding a new game for newly formed board game group and this morning I found your website. Your presentation is wonderful and I have spent all day watching clip after clip. I feel like I could easily describe how to play the game after watching your videos (or just show the video). I would just like to say thank you. I have plans on picking up Puerto Rico and Ticket to Ride. (Maybe even Tulipmania "wink"). Keep up the great work.
