My students were impressed with the explanations of symbols and the ease of use. They also appreciated the fact that the book showed examples of processes rather than just giving definitions.

–Beth Hendrickson, Cobb County School District, Marietta, GA, Teaching Children Mathematics

When students encounter clear and concise illustrations and explanations of terms such as those in this book, they often retain the concept for a longer period of time. I strongly recommend that both students and mathematics teachers use this book. It can serve not only as a student reference, but also as a reference for teachers.

Blurt The Webster’s Game of Word Racing
Think fast. What word means a partially dried grape? Be the first player to say raisin and you’re on your way to winning this riotous game of rapid word recall. Players take turns reading clues aloud, competing to blurt the correct answer first and move ahead on the board. The first person or team to circle the board is the winner. Sounds simple, right?

Blurt is a great vocabulary builder for the kids, a hilarious addition to adult parties and a must for a family game night. It’s for 3 to 12 players and includes a Junior version for ages 7 to 9.

This tongue-twisting game will have players racking their brains for words.
Be the First to Blurt the Right Word
An updated version of the original classic, Blurt features a new look but is a cinch to learn. With a total of 1800 different clues of varying difficulty, the fun never ends! A roll of the die determines which clue is read as well as the amount that a correct guess will be worth. As soon as the clue is read aloud, get ready for the room to erupt with rapid-fire guesses!
There’s no penalty for blurting our wrong answers, so things can get crazy in a hurry. Whoever guesses the correct answer first gets to move his or her token forward. The first player to make a complete circle around the colorful jumbo game board wins!
Get the Whole Family Laughing
One of the best features of Blurt is its all-inclusive game play. While some of the clues such as “the decision made at the end of a trial” will seem obvious to adults, over-confident guessers may find themselves bested by a quick-witted youngster half their age. And for those clues that seem too tough for a seven-year-old, the flip side of each card offers easier clues designed specifically for kids.
Junior Version Builds Vocabulary
Groups of kids ages seven to nine will love playing the Junior Version of Blurt (additional instructions included). In this version, players write down their guesses rather than blurting them. Every clue offers the opportunity to learn a new vocabulary word, and extra points are awarded for correct spelling!
Raise the Stakes with Advanced Play Options
The instruction manual includes a number of variations on the standard rules of game play that can level the playing field or raise the stakes. For added excitement, players can stipulate that whomever lands on a square that matches the color of his or her own game piece can challenge another player to a one-on-one showdown.
Alternatively, a variation called “Name that Word” allows players to bid on the number of words in which they think they can identify the correct answer. In this way, a fairly easy clue can become extremely difficult. With a total of 1800 clues and many different ways to play, Blurt is sure to become an old standby for large parties or family game nights.
What’s in the Box
Blurt jumbo game board, 300 cards with 1800 clues at two playing levels, six game pieces, and die.
