#GIVEAWAY Country music never sounded sweeter! 3 will win the You’ve been Sentenced! word game country music edition!

YBSCM_boxtop4_smlIf you’ve been watching The Voice, you’ll recognize the lovely Allison Bray from Season 6. She’s back again and better than ever. Of course, as huge country music fans, we are a little biased, but we think Allison could go all the way!

If you love country music, too, this giveaway is for you…

What do you get when you take the multi-award winning You’ve been Sentenced! word game and add words like tractor, cowboy hat and achy-break-y heart? The You’ve been Sentenced! Country Music Edition, of course!

Game play for the You’ve been Sentenced! Country Music Edition mirrors the perennially popular original game, but now you can add all-new fun (and funny!) words like calf-roping, deep-fried Oreos, and Dairy Princess to your wacky sentences.

Remember, you don’t need to come from Nashville to love this game – the You’ve been Sentenced! Country Music is for country music enthusiasts everywhere. (Retail $29.95)

Now, WIN a copy using the RAFFLECOPTER form below.

Giveaway is available for readers 18+ in the USA only. Odds are determined by the number of entries received. Contest ends November 1, 2014. Good luck y’all!

Looking for an educational game? My Fab Fit Forties says the You’ve been Sentenced! word game “gets the wheels turning!”

You've been Sentenced! word game, 2013, YBS10010My Fab Fit Forties is a great site for anyone who wants to embrace a healthier lifestyle for mind and body. Recently, site editor Gigi reviewed the You’ve been Sentenced! word game as an opportunity to maintain brain health. Here’s a little of what she had to say:

“It’s actually a very educational game no matter what your age is.  If you haven’t been in school for a while, it will all come flooding back to you as you put your sentence together properly! If you’ve got kids who are at the age where they’re learning this, it can really help them not only absorb what they’re learning even more, but you’ll find that they can actually teach you – especially when they’re on the jury and explaining why your sentence doesn’t work!

While the game is meant for ages 8+, we actually played it with my nephew who is 5.  It’s great for not only helping them with reading, but for also helping them recognize “hey, that doesn’t make any sense!!” when you come up with silly sentences….it’s a perfect chance to say “well, what would work better?” and really get the wheels turning in their minds as they try 

My husband has actually brought “You’ve Been Sentenced” to school and will be using it with his students and at the after-school games club.”

To read the entire review, visit Gigi at My Fab Fit Forties. PLUS, Gigi will be offering a You’ve been Sentenced! word game giveaway soon, so check back!
