Twisted Fish Review...

We teamed up with McNeill Designs to bring you another fun family review and giveaway...the Twisted Fish card game:


About McNeill Designs:
"Founded in 2004, we at McNeill Designs have never considered ourselves an ordinary game development firm. In fact, we prefer to title ourselves a “Think Tank,” where creative ideas are allowed to run wild and innovation isn’t a request, but a requirement. Now, they say that great minds think alike. However, at McNeill Designs we sometimes find just the opposite, due to the sheer number of revolutionary game, novelty, and product ideas generated by our 40+ team members. In 2005 this creativity was put to the test when we brought our first product to market. As our flagship offering, the unique card game “You’ve Been Sentenced!™” now sets the tone for all future McNeill Designs’ endeavors. The result of thousands of man-hours in research, development, design and redesign, this game succeeds where others have failed, by making sentence forming an entertaining, challenging, fun, and easy-to-learn game. So what will we think of next? As it turns out, we've thought of quite a lot. Several spin-off versions of “You’ve Been Sentenced! ™” are now underway with language translations versions, an educational color-coded version, and licensed specialty versions due to hit the market throughout 2006 - 2008. We have already launched our second game, “Twisted Fish” and are currently developing several other unique games and products for 2007. "


About Twisted Fish:
For Ages 8 and up, 30-40 min, 3-6 players
"The old game of go fish just got a very challenging twist. It isn’t child’s play any more! Twisted Fish takes a traditional standby and casts it into the 21st century.
13 unique Fish characters in five different colors, plus 8 unique “Zingers” that allow you to break the rules, makes “Twisted Fish” a unique game experience. The real challenge takes place when asking for the fish cards you are collecting—Now you have to be specific about the type of fish and color you are seeking. “Twisted Fish” challenges you to remember every question asked at the table. It is challenging and fun right down to the very last card!
We promise you’ll fall hook, line, and sinker! Twisted Fish offers laugh-out-loud fun for the entire family.
Will you be the family card shark? Or will you be the lowly shrimp?
Twisted Fish’s game play takes the traditional game of Go Fish and adds new, essential twists. The familiarity of the rules allow for quick learning.
Unique Zinger cards ensure that the game is always exciting and fresh.
Developed by toy and game veteran Martin Uniacke and Hollywood special-effects artist Jody Fedele.
Humorous, original illustrations created by Jody Fedele keep players laughing at the fishy antics of an aquarium full of comical characters.
Suitable for ages 8 and up. The whole family will love Twisted Fish for its hilarious game play and outrageous characters.
Cultivates memory skills as players track cards that “swim” around the table from player to player.
Both Skill and Luck are needed, making it fun for all ages and skill levels."

What we thought: This was a really fun game. It was a little over our kid's heads, but with very little effort we were able to doctor the rules a little to make it work for our 4 year old. I like that the rules can be changed as your kids get older...that means the game will stick around longer and still be a challenge. Twisted Fish is definitely the most fun version of Go Fish we've ever played. The characters are funny and colorful and they each have their own back story on the website. The instructions are easy to read and understand and the versatility of this game makes it worth well over the $10 you pay for it! ABCD Diaries gives McNeill Designs and Twisted Fish an A+!

Buy It: Find this fun-filled learning game online or check the store listing for a retailer near you!


Disclosure: ABCD Diaries was given a Twisted Fish card game for review purposes only. We were in no other way compensated. The opinions expressed in this post are ours and ours alone.

10/27/11:This is an updated post from last year...there is no giveaway for this game at this time.
