Interesting new game, causes you to think.
on December 29, 2010
I've read that this game is a memory-recall game meeting slapjack. The game is simple, with each card having symbols and a category (e.g. pet). When two people have matching symbols, they have to yell an item of the other player's category (e.g. "Dog!" for pet). The first person to end saying their opponent's category get the opponents card. The beauty of the game occurs when a losing player has a card below that matches the symbol of someone's deck, causing another face off. This catches many by surprise, adding to the fun element of the game.
When I saw the rules, I wondered how much fun this game would be but I was pleasantly surprised when I brought it out for a 6 person game. Your mind really draws blanks when it's put under pressure, which adds to the enjoyment of the game. My only complaints are when we land on a category that people don't know (e.g. I'm still not sure I know what a rock opera is). It's easy to see when some people aren't quick on their feet though, which may make the game less fun for them but the amusement in seeing others face-off can cause them to continue playing.
