Game Night is Fun with Loud About #Review

| December 4, 2014 | 29 Comments

I love having my friends over, especially those that I have known since my first-year university days. For me, they became second family, and we had some amazing adventures and were always together. Since our lives have changed since those fun and care-free days, we try to keep in touch any way we can. When I was asked to review the game Loud About, I took this as the perfect opportunity to get some people together to test it out. This game was developed by Jonathan Jeffrey Lai, and it was launched on Kickstarter on November 22, 2014.

LADeck-A

Loud About is a fast-paced memory game where its objective is to win the most face-offs against your opponents. Within this deck of cards, there are various categories for players to choose from. Two are drawn for each game, and two subjects are chosen by one player. The players each pick a person or a thing, and an action to go along with these two subjects. There are also cards with fun images that guesses either have a 1 or a 2 on them. The numbers correspond with the subjects that were previously chosen. When drawn by the players, if there is a match in the images on cards, the player who is the first to be “loud about” the other player(s) person or thing, and the action wins that round and gains a victory card. When there are not more cards in the deck, the player(s) with the most victory cards wins the game.

One of my best friends, Sarah, and her husband, Andrew, popped over to help me test this game. After we ate some delicious food and caught up on what was happening in our lives, I brought out the game and watched the YouTube video on how to play the game. Once we felt as though we understood how to play, jumped right in and started playing for ourselves.

Some of the categories were really fun to choose a person or thing and an action. I think our favourite subject was “Things That Scare Us.” The actions we came up with were cute and funny. Andrew really got into this subject with his choice, “Heights.”

Since we did not shuffle the cards, we found that we were having a lot of duels. There were also times that all three of us had the same image on the top of our deck, so we have a three-way duel. It was explained if this was how this situation was suppose to be handled, but we had fun trying to remember each person’s subject choice and action. After shuffling, we found that we did not encounter this issue, and that there were less duels and rounds won by one person. It was really easy to pick this game up and to play. We had fun each time we started a new game. There are 20 different subjects to choose from, so you could be playing with this game for a few hours.

Overall, we enjoyed Loud About. It is a great game to get people together and to have some fun for a Games Night or any kind of get-together! It also helps to get your memory into shape, as the more players you have included the game, the more people or things and actions you have to remember. We laughed whenever we were mashing together other players’ subject choices and actions, or if we were trying to remember these things because we looked and or sounded funny doing it! It would also be great for families to play, too, for a Games Night!

Happy Gaming!

    This looks like a fun card game. I’m so glad people make you tube videos about how to play some games because it’s so much easier to understand than reading the rules sometimes.

      Thanks, Erika E! I was glad that there was a YouTube video to explain this game. I liked that I could see how game was to be played as I am a visual learner. It was also fun to see others play this game, too, because it is a lot of fun.

    • Lian says:

      Hi JaimeeM! Though this game would be a bit of challenge for younger kids, it is a great one for older kids because it gets their brain working to be creative and to remember everyone else’s gestures.
