One of my favourite team party games. Gotta play with the 'putting off allowed' rule. Maybe not one for boardgame conventions, though - unless you don't mind the dirty looks

Fantastic spin on "name-it-and-claim-it", though your group will have to decide if they want to be hardnosed judges or lenient.

There's lots of scope for strategy mixed in with the frantic fun of coming up with the best word that will win you letters.

I love this game so much I totally pimped out the letter tiles - each is a one of a kind game piece of recycled game bits, glass, tile, wood, plastic, bottle caps, etc with a letter on top.

Played regularly by large teams at my house monthly.

An interesting tug-of-war game requiring good vocabulary and spelling ability. A fast challenge for teams or just head-to-head. Having a good vocabulary works, but only when the remaining letters allow it.

Yes, I gave it a 10. This game is so much fun. We play a game and people want to play again right away becaus they can "Do better" Anyone can play this game and it is so challenging towards the end of the game.

This is a great party game to have in your collection. Since we got Word on the Street, we pull it out at every party. And we can never stop with just one play. And subsequent plays get even louder and more energetic.

Really great party game. No need to get Word on the Street Junior, in my opinion. These double-sided cards come with easy categories on one side and hard categories on the other. Our kids love playing kids vs. adults. You can play with as many players as you want, divided into two teams. The more the merrier, with people shouting out answers all at once.

Good game.

Very easy to get going with non-gamers; also it is easy to enlist new people drifting through the room to join in in the middle of the game; with a 20-second rules explanation, they are good to go.

As someone who manages a circulating board game collection at a public library, I believe that Word on the Street is an essential game that every library should own and lend to its patrons. The design is flawless, and the game can accommodate a broad range of players, be taught in less than a minute, and contains durable and simple components. It's on my Want to Buy list because it's rarely available to check out at the library. It's an awesome family game, party game, and couple's game--everyone should own it.

Unique word game that works well as a group party game. Plays fast and loose due to the time limitation - which gives the game tension and laughs. Better play with a dictionary or Google nearby, though!

Endgame tends to drag a bit since sometimes it's difficult the come up with a word containing a specific letter, but that's the point. Very good idea.

Surprisingly competitive and stressful with 6-8 players! It's a good idea to follow the rules for making a formal "challenge" (and have access to the internet to resolve and disputes over on spelling and usage).

Fun partner word game. We need to add a house rule where you can't use the same word twice, which started happening near the end of our last game.

This game does bog down at the very end, where players start playing defensively. A house rule to speed the game up (play one less tile to win) helps fix this.

Great party game for non-gamers who like a little competition, and word games. Play guys vs girls.
This has been a BIG hit eash time i've gotten it out with random groups of people. Someone always wants to buy themselves a copy after I show it to a new group.
WARNING: This game can inspire intense competition.
If the group likes trivia or is more analytical, play "Wits and Wagers".

Challenging party game with easy to explain rules, that works well with a large number of players.

Prefer the blue cards as they tend to be a bit more specific categories result in a better balanced game.

Having a bunch of people yelling out words while your trying to think, concentrate, and come up with a good word in less than 30 seconds is a challenge.

A word game with a little bit of strategy. A much more fun alternative to boggle and other games that are decided solely on the size of the each players vocabulary.

Gifted this to my parents and we've enjoyed it so much that my wife found us our own copy. Again, I love word games, and this is a great group word game. It truly is a Tug of Words. My wife and I enjoy that it plays well with 2 players. When playing multiple games of it in the same evening it practically requires a house rule of "no reusing words from previous plays of the game today".
