You’ve been Sentenced! receives Top 10 Educational Games distinction by DGA

Award-winning You’ve been Sentenced! word game receives 23rd honor; Named to Top 10 Education Games for 2012.

Online PR News – 02-October-2012 – Wilmington, Delaware – McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds’ You’ve been Sentenced! word game recently was named to the Top 10 Educational Games list for 2012 by DGA. This is the 23rd national honor for the game in the toy and game world, as well as in the education sector.

The You’ve been Sentenced! word game uses pentagon-shaped cards with conjugations of funny words, famous names, and familiar places. Each player uses his or her hand of 10 cards to build a grammatically correct sentence, racing the other players while also trying to score the most points per round. Sentences also have to be justifiable in meaning, making players use both creativity and common sense.

You’ve been Sentenced! has a proven track record of success in the classroom and is used for language arts students aged 8+ worldwide. According to Vincent of DGA, “This particular game is great for teaching kids proper sentence structure. Since the cards are random, they’ll also need to “make do” with the words that they’ve been given.”

Ranking 4th on the list, You’ve been Sentenced! was joined by game stalwarts like Chess, Ingenious, Clue: The Great Museum Caper, Jumbulaya, Word on the Street, Got It!, Komodo, Pandemic and Tetris.
