EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

How does "Wes will cook Joe" become the song title "We Will Rock You"? Find out in the game Out of Order. In this game, players try to unscramble and identify mixed up titles, names, phrases, and more in order to score points. 

Players take turns each round being the host. The host controls the game console and reads out loud the category on the top card in the game console and the mixed up title below it. How are the titles mixed up? Maybe a word has been replaced with one that rhymes. Or a letter has been added, removed, replaced, or rearranged. If a player can correctly identify what the mixed up title really is right off the bat, he scores five points. If not, the host opens one of the game console windows to read a less mixed up version. Correctly guessing from this version earns four points. If no one still guesses, another clue is read, which will earn a mere three points for a correct guess

And on and on until someone correctly guesses and scores the number of points that corresponds to the number on the highest closed window, or the answer is revealed and no points are scored. The first player to score 21 points wins the game.

Is It Fun?

We're not going to lie, this game is kind of challenging. But there are probably going to be people out there who just naturally excel at this type of game. Don't worry if that's not you, though. Just shout out whatever answer comes to mind. That's going to be where the fun of the game lies. And don't spend too long dwelling on each clue, otherwise the game will be slow-moving. With so many puzzles to solve, you might start to get better at it the more you play.
