My Review

Totally Gross Makes Kids Giggle

By Lucy Adams from Thomson, GA on 4/10/2011


5out of 5

Totally Gross is a great family game that makes everyone giggle. Kids love it becuase they can say words like "fart" and discuss the size of an elephant's private parts without parental reprimand. Parents love it because it's a game that teaches children that science is fun.

This is travel size game, but it's not really suited for playing while actually traveling. Although the board is small enough to fit on an airplane tray or on a car seat, it is not magnetized. A bit of turbulence will send the playing pieces flying and the card decks sliding.

My family chose to play it at the kitchen table. The game board was somewhat too small for the kitchen table. Still, we were able to advance our playing pieces.

One suggestion: Although the game is designed for 2-4 players, my family of six divided into three teams of two players each. This arrangement not only solved the problem of having more players than playing pieces, but also increased discussion about scientific principles as teammates negotiated and considered (an argued about) answers to the trivia questions.

The video included with this review provides an overview of the contents of the game box as well as a sample question.
