I love playing games! They are fun, and depending on the game, can be competitive!
TABOO, everyone’s favorite game of forbidden words, has gotten a makeover in 2011! Now with a new, sleek look, game changing die and hysterical “Uh-Oh!” buzzer sound, players will frantically try to get their teammates to guess the winning word without using the Taboo words and phrases on their card. How do you get your team to say the word “heart throb” without saying “teenage,” “idol,” “star” or “movies”? With more than 1,000 words for players to try to guess, the “unspeakable” fun can continue for hours.
Can you get your team to say Brain Freeze? What if you can’t say Ice Cream, Headache, Eating, Cold or Fast? Not so easy now, is it? Because in this game, the obvious clues are strictly taboo.
The trick is to give creative, carefully-worded clues to get your team to guess words fast. But don’t mention unmentionables, or you’ll get the buzzer and lose the point!
This new TABOO game is raising eyebrows with over 1,000 fresh new words and a game-changer die. You’d better be shrewd, quick-thinking and willing to take some risks – but don’t get shut down by the buzzer!
Taboo, which sells for approximately $26.99, comes with 270 TABOO cards, Cardholder, Card Tray, Buzzer, Game-changer Die, Sand Timer and Score Pad. It is for 4 adult players, though I think some 8 year olds would enjoy it, too. (You may just have to skip over some words they don’t understand.)
The game is fun and exciting, and we had so much fun playing!
You can find the new Taboo game on Amazon.com, at Target, Wal-Mart, and Toys ”R” Us.
