Product Description

Product Description

Do you get tongue-tied under pressure? Can you avoid mental blocks? You'll soon find out playing BONKERS, a quick-thinking party game that has players racing against time to hit the 'Bullseye' answers and win scoring chips. Here's what happens. After the Card Reader presents a question, the timer is turned over and the fun begins. The player in the 'Hot Seat' starts blurting out answers, trying to match Bullseye answers on the game card. Quick, think of words to fill in the blank: '(BLANK) SALE'. You might blurt out 'yard sale', 'garage sale', 'fire sale', but are those answers a Bullseye match? Keep guessing until time runs out. In the next round you are asked to name living creatures that begin with the letters 'CO'? The answers roll off your tongue: Cobra, Coyote, Cow, etc. To win scoring chips you must match some or all of the four Bullseyes options provided on the game card. The more Bullseyes you hit, the fewer scoring chips are left for an opposing player to win. So don't waste any time! Keep the answers rolling! There are four different card types to challenge you: Figure out what goes in the blank in "What the (Blank)"?, form words in "Add Ons", use letter hints to search for things in "Letter Perfect", and find rhymes in "Rhyme Time". It's a constant battle of wits, nerves and concentration. Whether you are playing one on one or in teams - it's fun to go BONKERS! Includes 540 game cards, scoring chips, sand timer, game board, playing pawns and instruction sheet.

All in all it's a fun family game.
BookerMom
The questions are based around four different categories: AD ONS, WHAT THE BLANK; RHYME TIME, and LETTER PERFECT.
Kendra
The questions are not trivia and knowledge-based questions, but instead word-based questions.

We recently played BONKERS at our game club. As we read the instructions we were hoping going BONKERS would be fun and it was. BONKERS is a game based on asking players questions. The questions are not trivia and knowledge-based questions, but instead word-based questions. For instance, a question might ask you to "Come up with words that end in BELL". During your turn you have 30 seconds to "Go Bonkers" trying to blurt out answers like: BARBELL; DUMBBELL; DOORBELL, COWBELL etc. Your goal would be to find as many answers as possible in order to hit any or all of the four answers provided on the game card. For every answer you hit, you win scoring chips. That was just one category of questions called ADD ONS - where you find words that begin or end with a certain word. The other categories are: WHAT THE BLANK - where you find words to complete the blank; RHYME TIME - where you find as many rhymes as possible in order to match those provided on the game card; and LETTER PERFECT - where you would find words which begin or end with certain letters. The game play is interesting because there is some strategy thrown in. At the beginning of the round, one player (the Card Reader) peeks at the Question and Answers on Game Card and decides how many scoring chips each answer is worth. So, in the example above, the card reader might allocate 5 scoring chips to the answer COWBELL, four chips to BARBELL, three chips to DUMBELL and two chips to DOORBELL. This is done by placing the chips on the gameboard under target answer "A"; "B", "C" or "D". The object is for the card reader to decide on which answers are hardest and place the most scoring chips on the hardest answer.Read more ›

BONKERS contains 540 game cards in four card categories. Players have 30 seconds to come up with as many answers as possible to match four Bullseye Answers provided on the game card. Seems simple, but there's a catch. There is always more than one answer to a question. For example, a question might ask you to find countries that begin with an H? Players would try to come up with as many answers as possible: HOLLAND; HUNGARY; HONDURAS; HAITI. The player's goal is to match the answers given on the game card and win scoring chips. Any answers not matched are left for opposing players to steal and win scoring chips. The questions are based around four different categories: AD ONS, WHAT THE BLANK; RHYME TIME, and LETTER PERFECT. For instance, a Rhyme Time question might ask players to come up with words that rhyme with SLIME. Yes, you can go on forever rhyming, but the trick is to try your luck at matching the answers on the game card and win scoring chips. The AD ONS questions are for those word gurus, asking questions like - Come up with words that start with HOUSE. All of us immediately say HOUSEWIFE, but after that it becomes a little tricky....HOUSEFLY, HOUSEBROKEN, etc. In the "What the Blank" category, you are asked to think of words to fill in the blank space. For instance, the question might be: Think of words to fill in the blank GRAND blank? Answers would include: GRAND OPENING; GRAND FINALE; GRAND PRIZE; GRAND SLAM. Remember, you have to match the answers given on the game card to win points, so you really need to go Bonkers finding answers to win as many scoring chips as possible. This is a fast pace game with question types that almost everybody and anybody can answer. A truly great party game!

I really enjoy playing this game with my 8 year old son and his friends. It is interesting to hear the words he understands. Also the game presents many teachable moments. I really like it. I don't think he believes its cooler than Monopoly, but he does enjoy the game.

This is a great game for a mixed crowd, as 3- 10 players aged 4- 100 or more can play comfortably together. You spin a wheel to determine which of 4 categories you will play, then you are given a clue and asked to come up with 4 correct answers.The answers are somewhat arbitrary, but that is the fun of it. We adapted the rules to allow everyonre to call out answers together.

The whole family gets to play this game because it is set up to give everybody a chance. If you have very young players, you can team them up; but we were surprised how easily the younger players (10 years old) were able to keep up. It's fun and the rules are simple.

Picked this up for our kids for Christmas. They are both teenagers and the entire family likes the game. Going to take it to family party today and see if others like it as much.

I like this game. I would recommend it to nerdy families like mine. Not really, but...It really is fun. There are strategies that make it funner. It is fun for adults and my 15 year old cousin. Can play in teams or individually. Each game only takes 20-30 minutes. Pretty fun.
