      Overall, this is a great family game

      I played this game a little while ago now and is a great party game and is really good fun for all partners. I'm sure alot of us have either seen or heard of the TV show on ITV called Mr and Mrs and this is the game of the same name. It is amusing to see how much you know about the person you are with as you answer various questions about one another. It's a very simple idea for a game that has become very popular.

      The idea of the game itself is that partners take it in turns to ask each other questions about each others likes and dislikes and acheivements etc. and you then score points if your answers match in the same way as the TV show.

      The questions themselves are split into male ane female sections. Also, the partners do not neccessarily have to be boyfriend or girlfriend or husband and wife, but can also be mother and daughter or father and son so there are options so it's not as limited.

      To succeed at the game you basically need to know enough about who you are playing with to be able to answer questions correctly on them.

      In my opinion this game is great fun and it's great for parties or family occassions and the fact that it doesn't just have to played with partners makes it more interesting and means more can play it. You can also learn something about the person you are playing with if you do happen to get the answers wrong.

      Good party game, lots of laughs guaranteed if you don't know the answers

      Every year it's become a tradition to buy a board game for christmas and the new year to play with friends and family. This is one of the better ones we have chosen. It is an excellent game, and does follow the format of the tv show where you have a few questions you both answer them separately and then compare answers at the end gaining points for matching answers. It contains the usual stuff, answer pads, questions, pencils and a timer.

      It is endlessly enjoyable to watch the men squirm if they don't know the answer and the women blush when they get it wrong. I mean how many people know what part of their body their partner washes first in the shower? It makes it more fun to laugh at the 'we're not really arguing' arguments other people are having.

      It is a tame game so you don't need to worry if there are children in the room there are no adult themed questions. There are family questions in my version so you can play with the children as well if you're having a family games night. I have an old version there is a new version out so it might be worth checking that it is still the same. My box says suitable for age 10+ when most websites say age 18+.

      It often pops up in the board game sales in shops and online so keep an eye out and you might not have to pay full price for it (I certainly paid less than a tenner).

      The best game ever for lots of loud fun and laughter

      I've got quite a big family and we always enjoy playing lots of games at family parties. I was given the board game Mr & Mrs as a Christmas gift a few years ago and it has since become our family's favourite game.

      The board game is based on the TV show, Mr & Mrs and All Star Mr & Mrs is currently being shown on TV. The aim of the game is to answer in depth questions about your partner to find out how well you really know each other, and the team with the most points (the team who knows each other the best) wins the game.

      Teams are made up to two people and each person receives a partner pad sheet to write their answers on. A host can be selected to read the questions out from the cards. Each card contains seven questions and the host asks three of these in each round. These can be any of the questions on the card - the three questions on the front of the card are appropriate for any player and on the back are four questions - one for female adult, male adult, young female and young male.

      There are six rounds in each game (three for each partner) and the host asks the first three questions to one side of each pair (say the female side). The questions are asked about your partner and the women write all their answers on their partner pad sheet. After they have completed all three questions, the other partner's side (the male side) are then asked to give their answers to the same questions. If the women have written down the same answer as the men say, you receive 10 points. It is a little confusing so I'll give an example. The host asks the women partners 'What did you buy your partner on their last birthday?'. The women would then have to write down what they bought their partner. The men then answer the question and, if it is the same thing that the women have written down, they receive 10 points.

      The other partners are then asked their 3 questions and this continues until each partner has done 3 rounds. Each correct answer scores 10 points and if all three questions in a round are correct, another 10 bonus points are received. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins and, ultimately, they know each other the best.

      This is a game for anyone - young, old and any types of partners. It doesn't just have to be played with your spouse - my two boy cousins play against each other and my sister plays with another of my cousins and it works just the same, with family, friends and members of the same sex.

      Although this is a great game to play with anyone, it really does cause quite a lot of embarrassment and family arguments. There are some questions that could cause a bit of offence and you might not want to know how well your partner really knows you. For example, a question we had at my grandad's birthday party this weekend was for the blokes to answer the question 'Which of these would your partner perform best at - clown, comedian, stripper or singer?'. Now, if one of the women thought they would be best at being a stripper and their partner answered clown, this could cause a few problems! I also get really annoyed with my husband when we're playing because he seems to put the most stupid answers and I don't know where he gets them from! But these arguments cause a lot of fun and laughter and make the game what it is.

      This is a brilliant board game, the favourite of all our family including grandparents, teenagers and young kids. This would be a brilliant addition to any gathering or party and is certain to cause lots of fun and uproarious laughter.

        A good fun game to be played at parties or other social gathering

        I first came across this game at a party when me and my partner some how got roped into playing it, at first I was a little apprehensive as we hadn't been together that long and I didn't know how well we would do. In the end it didn't matter what the scores were we had so much fun playing that no one really cared and we learnt an awful lot about each other.

        For those of you who have never come across this it is a board game based on the old television show Mr and Mrs, which I'm too young to remember but the games great anyway.
        The concept of the game is very simple, partners take it in turns to ask each other questions and you score points for having matching answers.
        Depending on the number of players the host can be an individual or another player.
        The questions are split into male and female so that they are gender appropriate but it's worth remembering that the partners do not have to be Mr and Mrs they could be mother and daughter, brother and sister etc. so don't feel you cannot play this when single friends are round to visit.
        The idea is that you know your partner well enough to answer questions honestly about their personality, habits and general self.

        Included with the game is:
        Several question cards split into male and female
        Pad of Individual answer sheets
        Pad of Group score sheets
        4 Pencils

        This game is great fun and it's amazing what you think you know about each other but don't and it's sometimes just as much fun trying to guess the answer.

        The concept is as simple as its on-screen counterpart: one partner is asked questions about the other, and both must agree to score points. "How often does your partner weigh themselves?" will strike fear into many men's hearts, and "At what age did he start shaving?" is a question many women may not be able to answer accurately. Some questions are divided in "man" and "woman", while others are suitable for all. Depending on the number of players, the host is either an individual or a team, and "partners" do not have to be the same gender, or even a partnership in the traditional sense: mothers and daughters can play sisters and brothers, and so on. The key, however, is that you know your partner well enough to engage in an honest appraisal of their character and habits. The first partner to be asked writes down their answer, and these are compared to the second partner's answers to see if points are scored. All points are kept centrally by the host(s).
