    Comments about WORD TEASERS ORIGINS:

    This was a gift for a 15 year old girl. She loved it and had the whole family involved. The word is used in a sentence on one side and a definition on the other. She would read the sentence and get varied answers. Such as "Who is the pro facto head of your house?" A fun way to expand your vocabulary. My 19 year old wants a set to take to college and I would like one for myself.

              I bought these to use as Journal prompts with my 7th and 8th grade Language Arts students, and they're perfect for that purpose. We can learn some new words and share responses at the same time. Fun product!

                I got this a hostess gift, so we played it at the dinner table and it was so much fun. The questions really get people talking, but better yet was the interesting trivia about each word. I would totally recomend this as a fun and unique gift!

                  This game was given to me as a hostess gift, so we played it at the dinner table that night. We had a great time with it. The questions were fun and really got people talking, but we were all fascinated with the information the game company included on the back of the card. Truly a unique and fun gift.

                          I've changed the way I ask the questions. The way they are worded has too much assumption. It assumes you all know the same people and agree about their personality as opposed to asking "what does this word mean?" I'd rather they use the word in a sentence that demonstrates they know the meaning. Otherwise, I like the actual words

                            I love these card games. They are totally a fun tool to use to expand your vocabulary. As a bonus, you end up learning many interesting things about your friends and family through their answers. Turn off the TV! Spend more time together, and learn new things. There is no downside to these games.

                            We have a few previous versions of this great game. I keep the game on my island in the kitchen. I have teenagers and they always seem to pick up the game and start talking about the questions. This is a sneaky conversation starter with kids and adults. Good birthday gift too!
