This is like the game Taboo, but with words associated with the 80's and 90's. Can you get your team to guess Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles without saying Green, Cartoon, Martial Art, Raphael or Donatello?
To play, groups should be divided into two teams. Team A selects a clue giver from their team who will attempt to get his or her team members to guess the main word at the top of each card without using any of the forbidden words below. Imagine trying to get your team to guess the word "Wipes," but you must describe it without using the words Diaper, Change, Wet, Poop or Clean.
Once the main word is guessed, another card appears and the team tries to collect as many cards as they can in the allotted time. If the clue giver says one of the forbidden words, the team will not be credited for that word.
After time expires, a player from Team B becomes the clue giver for their team. Teams alternate play until either team gets to a predetermined score, or until everyone has had a chance to be the clue giver.
A standard set of cards is also included, so you can play with the Eighties cards, the Nineties cards, the standard set or any combination (see screenshots). There are plenty of cards to play, and the cards will not repeat until ALL the cards have been played.
Other features include:
- A point is lost for skipping cards or getting buzzed.
- Score can be corrected at the end of each turn, in case an incorrect button is pressed during game play.
- Free lifetime upgrades as new words are added.
