We were scratching our heads trying to figure out why we suddenly had so much interest in “Man Bites Dog” one of the family games we offer. Didn’t take much sleuthing to find out that it had been featured on “Live with Kelly and Michael”. Kelly’s youngest son Joaquin has dyslexia. One of his favorite games is “Man Bites Dog” . No surprise there. It can be fall on the floor laughing funny and, per his mother, young Joaquin seems to be a regular winner at it. Kelly is thrilled that he is enjoying a word game and reading at the same time.
Here’s a bird’s eye view of the rules cut & pasted from University Games’ website: It’s the Hilarious Headline Card Game! This game is a little different: you’re dealt a hand of cards with words on them, each with a point value. When it’s your turn, construct the headline that earns the highest points… and often the biggest laughs! The first player to get to 500 points wins. It’s a great way to have fun with language for kids and adults alike. Compact enough to go on the road, this game is Extra! Extra! fun. Comes with 106 Headline Cards, three Exclusive Cards and an Instruction Card. For 2 or more players.
Did you know most places are sold out of this popular game? We aren’t!
