We recently played with a group of friends, and the category was "Things you do to make yourself look better" - the responses varied... makeup, plastic surgery, etc. My answer got so many laughs... "Hang out with ugly people!"
My son and his fiance came for a visit with some friends a few weeks ago, and we busted out this game. Their responses were so funny, I laughed until I cried.
I'm not sure what other reviewers found so "hilarious" about this game. The topics are actually quite dry for the most part: medical specialties, airlines, animals native to Australia, etc. There is very little of the inherent humor of some other games that include suggestive or zany topics. It really felt more like Scrabble than a "party game" at times because of the lists of words people generated. Sure you could throw a crazy word in there but in the seconds you have to write humor was reserved for someone who has no intention of winning.
The main flaw is that the rules leave words up to debate too much. There are so many games of this type with clearer rules and more flavor that I would recommend giving Hit or Miss a miss.
It's simple, easy to explain, but a lot of fun. You have 45 seconds to write down as many words as you can for a certain topic (ex: musical instruments). When the time is up, each player takes a turn rolling the die, determining if they need to come up with a hit or a miss (the jester or joker means you can choose).
If you get a hit, you have to say a word you think a lot of people came up with. You get a point for every player that had your word (and everyone who had your word gets one point as well). Ex: You said "piano" and 5 of the 6 other people playing had that too (you, of course, don't get points for your own word). You get 5 points total for that round and the players that also picked "piano" each get one point.
If you get a miss, you have to say a word that you think is one only you came up with. The rules say to score one point for each person who didn't have it, but we changed that rule because it doesn't make any sense. If you pick a miss, people shouldn't have it. So we changed it to: if no one had your word, you get the points for the number of players (ex: 6 points for saying harpsichord because out of six players, no one else put that) (normal rule); if only one other person had your word, you get half the max points (so for 7 players, score 3 points since 6 is the max you can get on a miss) and that person who also picked harpsichord gets 2 points (we changed it to 2 from 3 points because it makes more sense). If more than one person had your word, you don't get any points and those who had it get 2 points each.Read more ›

This is a fun game, and it's very easy and quick to learn. It's very similar to Scatergories but still different enough. It's more fun the more people you have, though. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Sara
