    SOOOO MUCH FUN

    if you like apples to apples, you will love this game. similar premise with a rotating judge who decides who wins the round, but lots more laughing and lots less yelling! played this game with my 3 teenagers who loved it. we played a while, broke for lunch, then came back to play more! by the end we had a pile of drawings in the middle that looked like they were done by two-year-olds, but even at dinner we were talking about our word definitions and interesting depictions...rules allow you to customize the game to your group. we found we needed more than the 30 seconds allowed on the timer and used 60 seconds instead. the kids didn't like passing their drawings and having someone else get credit for their work, so by the end we were just passing in what we did after the 60 seconds. the game goes by quickly so there is no time to be bored and it keeps everyone engaged. if you are looking for something new, this is a GREAT game.

    fun for all.

    This is a new family favorite. It's so fun to play with anyone and everyone because you never know what kind of crazy ideas people are going to come up with. Played with family over Christmas and everyone had a blast.

    We got this for Christmas this after seeing it on the Today Show as one of the must have family games for this year. I wasn't sure at first, but after playing a couple of rounds we couldn't stop laughing at the things we came up with. Check this game out!!

    Return this game

    Sorry to say this was a big let down. Got it for Christmas and it lost our interest in minutes. Can't compare to Apples to Apples.

    Terrific game for families and friends!

    My teenage children recently gathered with their cousins to celebrate a family event. They brought along our family copy of Party Time. Many of the relatives had not played the Party Time game before. By the end of the evening, all were convinced it was the best group game to play. Even the younger kids joined in, as there is no age limit. I highly recommend it as a great way to include everyone in the fun.

    Laughed so hard my stomach hurt...

    This game was a huge hit at the last two parties we attended. We all laughed for hours as people defended their artistic creations and argued for their definitions. I had tears streaming down my face I was laughing so hard. This is a great game no matter the age group or setting in which it's played!

    OMGG, best game EVAR!!

    This game made me laugh so hard, I severely damaged my larynx. But through the magic of Yamodo, I was miraculously healed! This game also began the healing process that eventually repaired my shattered marriage. Thanks, Yamodo!

    Best Game EVER!!

    We played this game over the weekend with some friends and I have never laughed so hard in my life!! It's a mix between Pictionary and Apples to Apples taking in the best of both games! The basics of the game is that each person gets to create a definition of a made up word, either drawing or writing a description or a combination of both. The definition cards have a few lines to get you started, which was a huuuge help!! The game gets interesting because there's a chance to "pass" your definition and then someone else has to make your picture/description work. The judge then picks the best definition of the word to win. Great game, I would recommend this to anyone at any age!!!

    Ridiculously Hilarious

    I am a design student, and hence, love drawing games... so I found this one and brought it with me on a trip with my friends. However, my friends consist of inherently noncreative people, they dread drawing, and are not great at letting their imaginations run wild. As a result, I was worried that this game would not be the best in this situation, BUT it greatly surprised me. They LOVED IT!!! Once they got past the first rounds and started drawing and defining words like Hiptofat and Hippograpilicator they got entranced. We were rolling on the ground laughing at the drawings and the insanely crazy definitions. So if you want to have a great time with a on of people this is definitely the game of choice.

    Ignite Creativity

    I used this to build fluency in creative thought while I was teaching a college class. It was an amazing game, and even those that were worried about drawing had a great time. Many said they were going to go buy it for their families or to use in their own classrooms. I'd highly suggest it if you are trying to build creativity OR just looking for an entertaining time.

    Yamodo is a Fantastic Party Game!

    Even though it took me a while to get my creative drawing side going, Yamodo entertained my friends and I for an entire afternoon. In fact, it was so addictive that we didn't want to stop for dinner until we had finished another three rounds!

    INSANELY FUN!

    Yamodo Party Time is a permanent fixture at all of our parties. It's the game everyone is always up for playing. It's all the fun of original Yamodo with a few spins and twists, and the added bonus of competition. You have to try it!

    laughing too hard

    This game is awesome! A group of cousins sat down when we were together last weekend, ranges aging from 9 to 40, and laughed so hard. We seriously played for 3 hours. I would suggest this for anyone!

    LOL

    I've played this game twice and loved it each time. The first time I played with a group of friends and we laughed so hard we snorted. The second time, I just had one friend over but we couldn't stop trying to outdo each other with our answers. Even though the game really needs 3 or more players it was just as fun. Once you get going it's hard to get people to stop. It's one of those "just one more round..." kind of games.
