    The thrill of this game is just as in animal snap, packaged and hence more costly.

    • I’ve played Anomia. It’s a really fun and well-thought-out game, put out by a small press. Beats Milton Bradley crap hands down, and is also pretty stellar if you don’t want an iPhone in your face while playing a game.

        Totally agree, extremely well conceived, put out by a real mom&pop shop.

        I play tested this game before release; it’s totally addictive and is almost always one of the first things I like to pull out when hanging out with a friend who throw out a comment like “yeah, I wasn’t really ever that into games, let’s maybe just play some tunes.” Then we play, a lot, and that friend goes and buys it.
        People who don’t play games, love playing this game.

    I’m always playing when our group pulls out Anomia, but I think the next time I’ll take photos of the facial expressions this game evokes. Especially if you play several rounds with the “no repeats” rule in place.

    Sounds like great practice for getting older.  I think the frequency with which I say “what’s the word for __________” is doubling annually.  Maybe playing this will slow things down.  Or  …  mmm …  oh yeah, accelerate (!) the decline.  ordered the game.

    wow – we have one of the first run printings of this game because the guy who invented it lives in our neighborhood.  I didn’t think it would ever really leave the area, though.  great to see it catching on!

    Hey, this reminds me of a similar game, “Alzheimer’s”, but the word-finding fun is combined with emotional lability and incontinence. Then there’s “Parkinson’s”, where everyone gets so befuddled we all just rock back and forth and drool.

    Next up: “Traumatic Brain Injury”, where players guess the origin of their massive head wounds on the basis of their crazy discombobulated utterances! Fun for the whole family!
