One of my really good friends is totally into the 80s scene - you know, the big hair, the synthesizer music, etc., and I usually take every opportunity to make fun of him for that! But one day, while browsing the Amazon.com Deal of The Day, I saw that Scene It? 80s was their daily deal, and even though I can't remember the EXACT price, I know it was really cheap (or my frugal self wouldn't have bought it!)
At first, when he asked me to play this game with him, I declined, but he pretty much talked me into it! Guess what? We have played this game 4 times so far and I have won each time! I guess I can't make fun of him for loving the 80s so much anymore, especially since I apparently know so much more about that decade than I wanted to admit!
The Game Review Network did a review campaign for this game, and when I received the email from Val, I told her I already had the game and would write up a review for her, if she'd like, so that's what I'm doing.

Now, obviously, I haven't had my kids play this game with me because, they probably would get bored, but as I stated above, despite my original thoughts, I love this game! It's even got 80s-looking graphics and sounds in the game and they crack me up!
If you lived in the 80s and remember all that good stuff like Growing Pains and the two Coreys (RIP Corey Haim), then you'll love this game!
