Sounds Like a Plan – for everyone

Sounds Like a Plan

Get ready for great advice.

What’s the best advice your grandma would give you if you wanted to fry an egg on the sidewalk?
Or what advice would a kid give you for building a time machine?

Well, in Sounds Like a Plan, you’re going to find out. Sounds Like a Plan is a terrific board game for the whole family to enjoy. And it’s great for parties too. It can play up to 8 players and does so in a great fashion.

Sounds Like a Plan quickly became one of Brooke’s favorite games and she’ll tell you why in her board game video review.

Can the whole family enjoy Sounds Like a Plan?

Sounds Like a Plan To Do

Pick your “To Do List” and get your advice.

If they’re old enough to read, then they’re going to like it. We feel it’s a great board game for the whole family for a number of reasons:

  • It’s simple to play
  • It’s creative
  • The responses are funny and provide good laughs
  • Everyone can score points along the way
  • The components are fun and work well for the theme

We really like that we can all play at the same time and that everyone can score each time (except for the person who chooses the task that turn).

Sounds Like a Plan Die

Love the corkboard-looking score track.

So even if you don’t have good advice cards in your hand, you can still score a point or two.

In other games like this – where you select the best match – only one person gets a point for playing the best card. But in Sounds Like a Plan, you order the responses so everyone can score along the way. And this keeps the game fun for everyone as you go and we haven’t found anyone being left in the dust.


How does Sounds Like a Plan score on the “Let’s play again” meter?

Sounds Like a Plan scores high on our “let’s play again” meter for the very reasons mentioned above. But it’s really the funny combinations of tasks and advice that have us wanting to play over and over.

Sounds Like A Plan party gameThe score track is a good length, but the games we play always come down to a close battle at the end to cross the finish line first. So calls for a rematch occur frequently.

There also isn’t much to the set up of the game, so it’s easy to start right into another round.

When you’re looking for a great, light-hearted, fun group board game, then check out Sounds Like a Plan.

Thanks Gamewright for another fantastic family board game!

love your reviews. would it be possible for you to find and review or recommend some games that older people could play? some have very poor vision and the game would need to be pretty simple without a lot of pieces and very few, if any small pieces.

my mom is in a wheelchair and is nearly blind and i would love to find some games for her to play with her other old lady friends.





    A good game that we enjoy player with a wide range or people – that grandparents enjoy as well is Sequence.
    Another good one could be City Square Off. It’s a simple 2-player game with cards and pieces that are easy to recognize and place.
