My daughter and her friends sat around playing this on snowy night when it was impossible to go out. They ended up really enjoying it!
I've really not played a game like Open Up before, but I was sure my friends that I have a monthly game night would love it because we always prefer asking each other questions instead of playing an actual game. What I was surprised about was that we went through the whole tube in one night! I guess that's one downside, as once you're done with the tube with one set of friends, you'd either need to play it with another set of friends or buy one of the other tubes. We loved almost all the questions and actually expanded on the answers we required people to give, but there were a few questions that we thought were either "downers" or just not that interesting. Overall, I think everyone really enjoyed it.

We were initially attracted to the beautiful packaging, which looks awesome on our bookshelves, but what was inside was even better. Open Up is a fantastic party game and a really fun way to get to know your friends on a different level. The questions are thought provoking and witty and it won't take long for everyone to be laughing hysterically. We love this game!
My husband and I enjoy a good game night. When we had three other couples whom we'd not seen in a while over, we decided to bring out Open Up. Figured it would be a fun way to break the ice again. It proved to be a fun evening and while people would often skip questions (which is what in the cons section is supposed to say, but it won't allow me to use a ? and won't remove it when i try to), we all enjoyed ourselves and liked that there weren't set rules to play by. It'd be fun for a girls weekend (or heck a guys get-a-away...yeah, who am I kidding??) as with spouses around, we all clammed up a little bit. Overall, we had a fun time. **I was asked by the designer to play the prototype and review and am looking forward to the next one!!
Played this game at a party and it was a lot of fun!
