    I have now used this game for junior high school, high school and companies and it is always a big hit … works really well.

  2. 5 out of 5


    I was leary to purchase Words Up, sight unseen, and very pleasantly surprised when my students played their first game and really enjoyed the experience. It’s a different vehicle for learning English and a nice change of pace. The game is well thought out and challenges many categories of critical thinking. The box could be made of sturdier cardboard but all other pieces and components are of good quality .
