The game is like this: a smallish board with colored squares (some of the squares have multiple colors), several colored pieces, a 30-second hourglass, a die, and a number of cards. Each card has multiple questions, color-coded, so if you are on green you answer one question and if on red you answer a different question. There are some squares with special rules.
The questions vary from very easy/simple to really hard, although sometimes that has to do with who is playing and their knowledge. One of the harder ones I remember is "name 5 women's names with 7 letters" - hard to do in 30 seconds, and yet one lady totally pulled it off! Easier ones are things like "things you procrastinate on doing".
Streamlined (rules out the window) version rules, in case you wanted to try it: Divide the table into 2 teams, answer the question on the square your piece is on before the timer runs out, if you answer correctly you roll the die and move forward, the other team does the same. We ignore the flipflops and on multi-colored squares we just choose any color we want. People get unofficial style points if you say something funny or unexpected.
Even more streamlined (car-friendly) option: don't even use the board or pieces, and just use the cards. Give yourselves 1 point each time your team answers the question right.Read more ›
I have played this game with my family and friends and it always is so much fun! This is a game where people of all ages can participate and be engaged. Name 5 will be a staple at your family game nights, trust me! Sometimes I will even pack some cards to bring out at family dinners of while walking somewhere with friends.
During one of our recent games of Name 5, the question was 'Name 5 musicians whose names start with the letter B'. Grandma says Bing Crosby, Mom says Bruce Springsteen, I add Beyonce, and our team (made up of 3 generations and spanning over 70 years of music) is more than halfway to our five answers.
If you want a game that is enjoyable and memorable for people of all ages, this is your game! Endless Games really got it right with this game and I look forward to many more rounds of Name 5 at family game nights!
Awesome job, Endless Games!
1) It's a great idea. I love brainstorming little lists of things.
2) Many of the card ideas are fun, like name 5 "gifts for a man," or "first names that can be male or female."
3) It has 288 cards with 1,400 answers. That's a lot.
4) The cards are easy to read.
5) The content is rated PG. No surprises.
That said, here are 5 things I don't like about this game.
1) I've always questioned the format of 5 answers on one card. Once you've gone through the 288 cards, there are still answers you haven't played, but now you're increasing the chances for repeats. It's a cheap way to manufacture 1,400 answers vs. putting them all on separate cards.
2) The game board is unnecessary, and it's visually confusing. An unnecessary game board is a big pet peeve of mine. The board in a board game rarely, if ever, adds to the actual game play and fun. What it does do is create paper and plastic products (pawns, die, etc.), that are manufactured in China and shipped to the U.S. and then sold to you as the consumer at an increased price.
3) The instructions are overly complex. This is a simple game: take a card and name 5 of the things the card tells you. If there were no board, there would be no need for these complex rules. See number 2 above.
4) There is a subjectivity problem. This is an even bigger pet peave than unnecessary game boards. I firmly believe party games should not allow answers that are subjective. The rules themselves try to address this flaw.Read more ›
