PUNDERDOME  - 3 stars
by By daughter-father duo Jo and Fred Firestone,  creators of Punderdome 3000

Have you heard of this fun new game?  I was itching to try it and share what I thought.
Can families even function if they don't play games?  My family loves to play games - so I was excited to try this new one called Punderdome.   

Cons:  This game says ages 12+.  I would say it is really a game for ages 16+.  Our family of 11, 13, 15, and 17 all played.  Right off it was too hard for the 11 year old.  My 13 and 15 year old teens didn't want to put in the effort - they just wanted to play and laugh and not think.  If you enjoy a relaxing game, with little thought or effort, but lots of fun and movement - this is not the game for you.  My husband loves a challenge - he loved it.  I wanted to play without thinking, and so I didn't like it so much.  Also - if you need a timer - put it in the game.

Pros:  If you love to think, figure, and be clever - this is definitely the game for you!  I would also suggest playing it with peers so that it plays out fair.  If you want to be witty and clever, enjoy a real challenge then Punderdome is for you.  I liked the variety as the game switches between trying to answer clever jokes and  then back to figuring out a groan worthy pun.  This is a great game with a fresh new challenge for gameaholics.
I was given a free game in exchange for an honest review.
