Take it in turns to guess a hidden word. Your team mates will try to come up with unique clues to help you. All identical clues will be cancelled so you will only see the clues that nobody else thought of (think “Pointless”)! The fun is in the fact that everyone will want to tiptoe around the obvious clue, leaving the guesser with a number of clue words that may not connect terribly well with the word they are trying to guess.
A complete game is played over 13 cards. The goal is to get a score as close to 13 as possible. In case of a right answer, the players score 1 point. In case of wrong answer, they lose the current card as well as the top card of the deck. Thus losing 2 points. In case of lack of answer, the players only lose the current card, and therefore only 1 point.
For 3-7 players ages 8 and over, takes about 20 minutes to play.
