I love Oh! Toys because they have so many unusual toy finds! Recently, I got to try the Anomia card game.
Anomia is recommended for ages 10+ so I tried it out with a few friends from MOMS Club. It is a really fun game where it can be your turn at any time and anyone can be your opponent! The tag line for it is, "Where common knowledge becomes uncommonly fun," and this is really a fitting description. The game operates with endless categories that should be common knowledge and uses symbol matching to prompt face-offs between two people at anytime. It is really fun to see what people think of for each category and who is really quick on their toes under pressure and can shout the answers out first! In Anomia, there is no down time and it requires you to stay engaged the whole time resulting in an energetic, fun game full of competition.
Even though the Anomia box suggest 3-6 players, there are instructions for playing with two players and I tested this out with my husband. I thought it was really fun (even though I lost twice in a row to him!) It is definitely a fun game and I think that my niece and nephew would have a ball playing it with us too. It seems like a great game for bridging the age gap and putting everyone on pretty equal footing.
Anomia is a 2010 Mensa Select® Winner- the gold standard of gaming. That means lots of other people besides myself think it is a high-quality product that you're likely to enjoy too. I think Anomia is great exercise for the brain!
Check out Anomia with free shipping at Oh! Toys as well as tons of great other fun games and toys. You can also take advantage of Oh! Toys 30% sale on Blue Orange and Family Games products until July 31, 2010.
Oh Toys did provide me with Anomia in the hopes that I would share experiences. The opinions expressed are my own.
