The Rank Game Review
My family and I love to play games for family fun night. When offered a chance to review a prototype for the new game, THE RANK GAME by Storyastic, I thought it sounded like a great new addition to our game collection!

What is THE RANK GAME?
Dana Brown, a former Walt Disney Imagineer, and Chip Brown, a former Disney Studios producer and Christian publisher, designed THE RANK GAME. They wanted to engage the backgrounds, interests, personalities and opinions of every player. The design of this game makes it easy to be played by groups of all sizes. Play it with friends, for a family game night, or as an ice breaker at a social gathering.
How does THE RANK GAME WORK?
THE RANK GAME uses our social behaviors and ranks the things or experiences in our lives. For example:
Rank the four seasons: A) fall B) spring C) summer D) winter
Your answers will be different than mine, and that is where the fun begins. Using the score card you have, you write your rankings. Then your opponents have to guess them.
This game can be played competitively. It takes about 30 minutes to play competitively. However, you can play this game just for fun.
The base game includes 150 cards, but there are 11 expansion packs available for the game. The 11 expansion packs cover 11 different categories and include 50 cards each. None of the cards are repeated!
THE RANK GAME includes 4 different game modes:
- Icebreaker: (2 or more people). In this version, you draw a card and everyone shares their RANK. No scoring and everyone wins!
- Spotlight: (3 or more people). Take turns being the Ranker. Everyone guesses the Ranker’s order. Those who guess right, win the game!
- Teams of 2 (4 or more people). Players on each team alternate being the Ranker and the Guesser.
- Two Teams (6 or more people). Each team has a Ranker and their teammates work together to guess their RANK.
Our Review of THE RANK GAME
The kids and I thought this game was a great concept. It is a great way to get to know your friends and family a little better. Bubby and Sissy thought this would be a great game to play with friends. We go to homeschool gatherings a lot, and the kids like to bring different games to play.
The game was pretty simple to understand, and it made playing very easy. We can’t play this game with Crankles, as it is geared to 14 and up. However, this game provides a great way for me and my husband to connect with the big kids.
