Whats the Word on the Street?

I love family gaming night and we are always looking for great games that will stimulate our minds and bring out our inner competitiveness.  While we have fun playing traditional games, its the games that aren’t so traditional that really gets my house amped up.  Interesting fact:  My kids love word games and any game that requires them to think out of the box and Word on the Street did just that.

What makes Word on the Street so Competitive?

Word on the Street is literally a Tug of Words, you battle to capture 8 of the letter tiles on your side of the street to win the Word on the Street.  Using Category Cards you are challenged to use words to move tiles away from your opponent.  The catch is that you can’t use compound words, for example if your category card reads “A Two Person Game” you can’t choose a word like ping pong, but you could use the word Tennis.  Using Tennis would bring the “N” tile 2 streets closer to your side.  Your ultimate goal is to get at least 8 tiles off the game board on your side of the street and the 1st team to do so wins the game.  While it seems like an easy concept, it’s not as easy as it sounds one false move and the letter tile can be off the board and to your opponents favor.

The Setup:

The board consists of 17 letter tiles excluding the vowels and the letters J,Q, X, and Z.  You have 2 sand timers that are used to time you or your team as you are coming up with your Word on the Street.  There are also the Category Cards that you use to help you determine the word you will be playing.  The other players/team’s responsibility is to distract you for coming up with a word to play.  So they may talk loud, crack jokes, make faces and do just about anything to distract you.  The game is made for 2 players or if you have multiple players you would split into two teams.  The box and instructions state that this game is designed for ages 10+, however my 6 year old clearly understood the concept and was able to join in on the fun.

My Family Challenge:

My family sat down on Christmas Eve and prepared for the ultimate Tug of Words.  We split up into two teams. Each team consisted on an adult, teenager and a little one.  We didn’t just play for bragging rights we played to avoid chores.  Winner got to relax and the loser was responsible for Christmas dishes!  Our game took about 30 minutes and unfortunately I was on the losing team (booooo) so I was forced to wash dishes on Christmas, however revenge is in the near future as we plan on playing this game again during the next family game night.
