Product Description

Product Description

Gotcha! is the party game that breaks all the rules.

In Gotcha!, each player tries to follow the constantly changing rules, while at the same time trying to catch others breaking a rule. For example, a rule card may read - People wearing jeans must use finger quotes while speaking.

If any jeans-wearer speaks without using finger quotes, the first player to catch it and hit the buzzer scores! The rule cards have been designed so there are thousands of different possible rule combinations, offering great replayability and making each game different. The more rules that are played, the funnier the game gets. Catch your friends before they catch you!

From the Manufacturer

Gotcha! Board Game by Buffalo Games. The party game where you're the one making the rules. The more rules that are played, the funnier the game gets. On each turn, a person plays a rule card. As the game moves along, rules accumulate and change. Players watch each other to try to catch the opponents breaking the rules.

Played with game with a great group of friends and we had a blast!
Alicia
The game is definitely OK, and it's a creative way to get people to be silly, but I don't think I am part of the target consumer group for this game.
N. Beitler
This game is easy to play and fun for everyone but little kids might need a little help.

I'm not going to lie. I chose Gotcha! as a bit of a lark without realizing its full potential. With the catchy title and simplistic look, I thought this was one for the kids. It is, however, branded with an "adult" label and an age suggestion of "14+." This has absolutely nothing to do with the actual game content (which is in no way age restrictive or racy) but with the challenges of game play. Any child, though, that has reasonable intelligence and a decent attention span can appreciate the charms of the game. Enough babying already! I was playing sophisticated card games with adults by the time I graduated primary school and have a young nephew who plays complicated battle reenactment games well over my head. Simplistic in design, but surprisingly challenging in execution--Gotcha! falls into my favorite genre of board game. Anything that can make people act like fools is a keeper in my book.

The game is straightforward. Cards are drawn that indicate various behaviors that must be enacted throughout the game (by one, some, or all of the players). The goal is to buzz out anyone who fails to fulfill the rules of these increasingly overlapping challenges. There is a winner as tokens are moved along a rather superfluous game board--but this is certainly more about the journey than the finish.

Everyone has their own set of expectations when playing a game. I, personally, like to associate with friends that like to imbibe serious quantities of alcohol. Let's just say that the addition of cocktails to the party fits well with Gotcha! While this may be completely useless information to some, I can't be alone in using party games in actual party settings. We had a loud and wacky time with lots of laughs--and it's definitely a game that will make future appearances at spirited gatherings. KGHarris, 9/11.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Mrs. and I love "game night" and there's hardly a better way to pass time with friends and family than with a good game - so we're always on the lookout for a good one.

Last night we tried out "Gotcha!" with our daughter and son-in-law, and about half the time we laughed so much we had tears in our eyes. It's a game that has a goal and you can "win", but seriously - the purpose of this game is to make you and the other players say and do things that are funny and entertaining.

A handful of cards are dealt out and during your "turn" you play your cards. There are basically 2 different kinds of cards. One kind of card specifies an activity that becomes a "rule". The rule may be that certain players have to say "I pity the fool" every time they have a turn, or repeat the last word they say-say whenever they speak-speak, if you know what I mean-mean. The 2nd kind of card specifies which players follow the "rule" - it could be males or females or everyone or the youngest or whoever is winning the game.

A buzzer is placed into the center of the table, and you "score" by catching a player breaking a "rule". There is a rudimentary "board" and when you score you move ahead 2 while the caught player moves back 1.

These are the basic rules - but it takes almost no time before you have players doing "the wave" and winking while saying required phrases at specified times... always hoping to not be caught "breaking a rule" while buzzing other players.

Our daughter is due any day now and she posted this on that well-known social networking site:
"Had such a great time with my parents tonight can't remember the last time I laughed so hard....."

So - should you try out "Gotcha!"?

If you don't.... I pity the fool-fool.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first time I tried to play this game, beers had been had, we couldn't find a screwdriver small enough to open the battery compartment, and the rules seemed overwhelmingly complicated. We gave up.

The next time I tried to play this game was with my family, including my intensely competitive father. We laughed a *lot*, but it was also overall a frustrating time, as he was trying to exploit every little piece of ambiguity in the rules. And there is a significant amount of ambiguity, like the creators didn't put quite enough thought into the rule design.

Finally, I played this game with friends, and while we enjoyed it and laughed quite a bit, when we finished, we unanimously and without hesitation decided to switch to something else.

The concept, it turns out, is simple enough that we should have been able to understand it even after a couple beers. There are three kinds of card -- top, bottom, and individual. Top cards define who a rule applies to, and bottom cards define what the rule is. Individual cards define a rule that applies only to the individual they're given to. Example: Top card says, "Everyone wearing jeans" and bottom card says, "Must pound table while talking."

Each player gets three cards dealt to them, and every turn you take a card from the pile, and play ONE card from your hand -- so with every turn, you're either creating or amending a rule. If the rule on the table is "Everyone wearing jeans must pound table while talking," you might play the top card, "Everyone male" so the "pound table while talking" part then applies only to males, and the thing about jeans is just out of play. Or you might give another player an individual card in lieu of amending a rule already in play.
