Reviews & Comments:
BGG Trent Howell:"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. You can see our full family review here - The Boardgame Family review"
BGG Colleen McCarthy-Evans:"Just added this one to my list of my all-time favorite word games! "
BGG Tom Vasel:"An excellent word/party game. Plays very well with two players." See Tom Vasel's video review above - The Dicetower review
BGG Rob McLain:"A big hit at our house. A great word game. Lots of interaction as teams (or two players) tug of war over letters. It's also o.k. to give "advice" on what words the other team should spell which adds a lot to the fun. "
BGG Joel Gabelman: "Don't usually like word games, but in the genre, I REALLY like this one. "
How To Play
On each turn, one team flips over a category card. Team members frantically brainstorm words that fit the category while the opposition tries to sidetrack them. The team must agree on a word and pull each letter of that word one lane closer to their side of the street, all before the time runs out.

BGG James Castelli:"Yes, A word game that I find enjoyable. Not so much dependent on vocabulary. This game is about the right word at the right time."
BGG Zachary S.:"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! "
