Review and Giveaway of Do Tell Family Relationship Game

We laughed, we cried, we barked like dogs!  OK, we really only did two of the three but, hey, we almost cried!  Do Tell, the Family Edition of the Relationship Game, is specifically designed for families to laugh, learn and relate to each other across generations.  The game takes two to eight players on a wildly imaginative, laugh-out-loud, uniquely imaginative and deceptively thought-provoking journey.  Playing time is approximately 45 minutes and the game itself is simple to play. For ages 8 to 88!

The goal of the game is to be the first one to reach middle sun symbol which is the end of the game.  You move your token according to the roll of the die (dice if you have more than four players) and you choose the card according to the space you land on.  There are Do cards which are action cards, Tell cards which require you to answer a question or share an experience, Risk cards which have you divulge or act out something a bit edgy and Wild cards which shake up the game in a big way. 

We had a lot of fun following the instructions on the cards.  We'd just had the average teenage blow-up before the game and so some of us were on shaky ground with each other.  Through the game we were able to resolve the 'crisis' (thus, the almost crying part) and end up laughing about it (not the only laughing part in the game, by the way).  And yes one Risk card required us to all bark like dogs which freaked out Chevy the Super Dog.  Do Tell really drew all of us into the game (even the dog!) and helped us to connect with each other in new and interesting ways.

This game recently earned a coveted Kidlutions Preferred Product Award because it exemplifies what social-emotional development is all about. The obvious reason is that it brings families together to talk and laugh in a very meaningful kind of way. Do Tell may actually help your kids do better in school, too, because it encourages healthy social-emotional development which researchers believe leads to improvement in other areas.   You can check out successful reviews of Do Tell HERE (some of them are from families with autistic and deaf children). 


Overall, Do Tell, the Family Edition of the Relationship Game, is a great addition to our collection of board games.  It will be loads of fun to play on a Sunday night when all of us are at home or when extended family visit us.  This is one game I'm going to loan out to the other Moana Saves bloggers so they can experience the magic of the game with their families!
