My comments:
This is one of those speed word games similar to Discovery Toys' Whiz Kids with a small twist. Players are given a letter and subject and have to think of the first word that fits the category starting with the given letter and continue to come up with as many words as they can before the timer goes off. Those who come up with the last word advance around the gameboard. The fun and exciting part of this game is the timer. It goes off randomly so nobody ever knows when it will alarm.

While our family did consider this a fun and challenging game, it got old after a few plays and we had to put it away for a couple months before wanting to play again. link to this game:
