Review: Show Your Game with Girls’ Night Out

Posted by at 12:21 am on November 21, 2010

Girls Night Out is an iOS app, the first release from Wee Black Sheep Entertainment.   The app description calls it “part scavenger hunt and part Truth or Dare” and we found it was both of those, plus a little more.   It’s a great addition to a bachelorette or birthday parties, or in the case of our test as a way to add some fun to an otherwise regular bar night.

After the opening screen you get the opportunity to enter 10 team or player names.   Then you choose a game format, either “Race the Group”- a mode where all players compete against each other to complete each mission, or “Own It!”- a mode where each mission is completed by a single player.   Then you choose long players will have to complete each mission.

Mission Improbable

In the categories screen you choose what mission types you want to include in your game, in total there are six available categories that include:

  • Warm Up! -“ You always need a good warm up before the big game. These cards will help ease you into the night
  • Truth be Told -“ Get ready to spill your guts to your friends
  • Naughty Girl -“ The title says it all but don’t worry, taking risks pays off, complete these cards to earn extra point
  • Custom – Allows you to design your own missions and add them to the play.

After choosing categories, you decide how many missions will constitute the round and you are ready to go.   One of the 175 missions included in the game appears on the screen and you can choose to register either “success’ or “failure” when you finish it.   The game has a built in time and keeps track of scores for players/teams.

Verdict

Overall, the game is a hoot.   The app is easy to navigate and has lots of entertaining, though admittedly embarrassing challenges, they definitely become easier after a couple of rounds (of drinks)   Playing in Race the Group mode with a lower number of missions keeps things moving and makes the game extra fun as players compete with each other to rub a bald head or find space to dance on the bar.   Being able to add your own devious missions keeps things lively.

The game is available in the App Store for 99 cents.

Pros

  • App is easy to use
  • Mission variety keeps things interesting
  • You can add your own missions

Cons

  • Single player mode with lots of missions per player can drag down game play
