Board Game Capital's Review:
I think by now everyone has had the chance to play some version of the many games similar to Apples to Apples. I don't know who was first to come out with the "become the favorite answer" idea but Wing It plays off of the common rules of having a judge, a problem or situation card and players trying to gain favor by using the most outrageous, witty or practical card in their hand.

What sets Wing It slightly apart from its competitors is that the situations are the beginnings of well thought out stories. They set the stage for how you need to use three of your random object cards in your hand. After opening the box we realized there would be no shortage of object cards (there are a lot!) nor the amount of creative links you could create to wing it and complete the story.

Wing It CardsWe did notice, however, there was a drastic difference in amount of situation cards. Keep in mind that we received a very preliminary beta version of this game so perhaps more is yet to come. While the stories may become repeats in subsequent games, the solutions or objects used will always be different, especially since the acting judge decides whose response wins.

While playing, everyone was on the edge of their seat intently listening to each situation. We were greatly impressed by the random, diverse and creative way that they were written. Then, everyone went into "wing it" mode mentally connecting their objects. Lastly, the relaxing phase came as everyone shared their solutions and of course laughter ensued the preposterous ideas that people came up with.

If you're looking for a relaxing, mentally/socially stimulating, thought provoking and imaginative game then Wing It will be a perfect fit. Can you make your case to how you'll use an ice cream scoop, a paper shredder and a bicycle helmet to aid you in the following: "You work at a furniture delivery company. On the highway, a sudden drop in traffic speed forces you to slam on the brakes...leading three couches to bounce out of the back of your pickup truck and into two of the three lanes. Three couches are now obstructing the road and dozens of cars are coming on fast."
