Blank Slate is a great game for large families or gatherings. Testers told us that in their experience, there are very few games that big groups can actually play together without splitting into teams. Blank Slate lets everyone play on their own simultaneously since it includes materials for up to 8 players. The directions are well done, making it easy to teach to newbies quickly. As for materials, both the “blank slate” answer cards and the score tracker card were of excellent quality, not flimsy or easy to rip or tear. There are many prompt cards, but after playing it numerous times, odds are that you won’t start recycling prompts for some time. The game can be played by people of all ages because each round has a different vibe depending on whether kids are playing or if grownups are playing with other adults, The bottom line is that this is a great family game worth inserting into your Family Game Night, and family gathering (holidays & travel) rotation.
