In Mad Gab, teams work to decipher groups of unrelated words into real phrases before time runs out. Clues are provided on cards (the answer is safely hidden on the back). How long does it take you to figure this one out? Teams have two minutes to sound out three puzzles. The faster you guess, the more you score. Use repetition to puzzle the clues out. It's a game sure to spur laughter as friends speak this strange language, and then say the answer without even knowing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JackJackMom from This Game Will Have You Cracking Up This game was so fun. It started off slow because we had to go over the directions and get the hang of it. Once we actually started playing we could not stop. I am being literal. We started to play and had to stop because they had to go to bed. Its a great family activity and It is funny to see how people hear things. The only issue I had was the directions. They say that the cards are 2 toned. Blue on one side and orange on the other. But the actual cards are yellow and orange. Other than that minor issue this game is a amazing and I have recommended it to be at all our future family events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paytonsplayplace from Fun for hours of laughs If your looking for a game that makes you laugh endlessly this is it. My daughter (who is 17) and her friends spent hours with the tounge tied puzzles and laughing hysterically to the point I had to join in on the excitement! Their main complaint was the directions where a little hard to follow, but they did end up figuring it out. The age recommended is a little young in my taste, some of the older kids had a hard time and or did not know some of the phrases, so I would say 14 and up is a better age that is more suitable for this game. But overall my daughter loved it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by KJHope from Great Party Game This game would probably be better for an older age group than the suggested starting of 10 years, but it was fine after everything was explained. Having said that, hysterical laughter flowed throughout the house trying to solve what your teammate is saying. Plus, if your team cannot solve the saying...you can see the opposing team just ready to steal your phrase!! They looked like they were sitting on pins and needles!! Just like it says, it's not what you say...it's what you hear!! As well as "how you say it!". This is a great game and my family had a blast! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A family hit! Mad Gab was a hit with my family! It was fun and sometimes challenging. We all laughed and laughed as we tried to sound the words out to find the actual phrase. There are 600 Mad Gab puzzles to solve, so there are plenty of puzzles to last a while and not become boring. Some are easier than others. My 9 year old was able to solve a few but some even left us adults stumped. We plan on playing this game weekly. We had the best time ever playing a game as a family! I highly recommend this for family game nights or game nights with friends! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetSarahGirlie from Fun Family Game This game is a great choice if you're looking for something fun for the entire family. The concept is pretty simple...read a string of actual words that make no sense when grouped together and try to figure out what the correct phrase is supposed to be. For example "Ace Care Remove Me" would be shown on the card and the correct answer would be "A Scary Movie". Be prepared for lots of laughs as you enjoy watching others attempt to figure out what the answer is. The box says ages 10+ which is pretty right on. I have a very intelligent 7 yr old that struggled a bit but still enjoyed playing with the family in teams. Overall I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kat76 from Fabulous Game night addition! We have family game night about once a week at our house, so we were very excited to have a new game to play. We had never played Mad Gab before so it was new to us all. The directions were easy to follow and set up took no time at all. It was hilarious trying to figure out what we were trying to say. My middle sone who is 11 had a blast playing and was better then us at it. This is a game that the whole family can play and we will definitely be bring this out at our next party! Thank you Mattel for letting me try this for free. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jpaq from Family fun night I loved this game and so did the entire family. Not only was it tons of fun but we laughed so much while playing it was nice just spending time with the kids and enjoying their company. They loved the game and thought it was so funny. It was a game that everyone actually liked playing and with 7 people that is not an easy feat. Not to mention you can play with as many or as few people as you want as long as you have at least 2 you can have fun with this game and the more the merrier. Can't wait to play with the kids again this weekend. I received this product as a free sample but the review was strictly my own opinion after trying out the game and I am so glad that I did. Great family game. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Endless laughs..... My 15 year old son and I played this game and we found ourselves on the floor laughing hysterically! It is a simple concept and an easy game to learn to play. I like that there isn't a bunch of little pieces involved that could end up getting lost or misplaced. Just cards that have over 600 phrases to guess, a card holder, and the sand hourglass for keeping time. Each correctly guessed phrase is a point and you play to 30 points to win. It is challenging but so much fun to play. I think it would be even more fun to play in a group as apposed to just two people playing. I would definitely recommend this game for any party or get together with family or friends! Just be ready to laugh to the point of crying. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
