Long time Taboo owners who have fruitlessly searched for a "taboo expansion deck" should know that this is it! This 10th Anniversary Edition has ALL NEW words. If you know someone who is already a Taboo fan, this would make a great gift. That makes this an unusual item: wonderful for both people who don't own Taboo and those who do!
It is a great ice breaker, people get into the game and forget about what they're saying which is super funny. You get to know the people you play with pretty well. Everyone has a bunch of laughs and a great time.
I travel a lot, and I keep the cards in my bag with a BBQ timer [better than an hourglass--no waiting]. It is a blast.
It is true that, you get right into the game and rifle through the cards before you know it. So after playing the Canadian version, I bought the American version when I was on a bike trip in Arizona. The game is new again.
They recently came out with a celebrity Taboo, I haven't gotten my hands on it yet--but it's sure to be great as well.
One word of warning, the electronic Taboo isn't all that great. The words database is pretty small, and the unit is cumbersome compared to the cards. [some people find the readout hard to see as well]
So top points for Taboo, it's an all round good time.
This game is a lot of fun because you will suddenly find it challenging -- and funny! -- to express a very simple word, phrase, or person that everyone knows. Everyone will laugh as you take turns grasping for alternate and creative ways to say the words that are "taboo." This game should be a classic "party" game because it engages all players (you take turns guessing, reading cards, and making sure the opposing team doesn't say words they're not supposed to!) and even though people may not think it's their kind of thing beforehand, everyone always ends up having fun.
The bad news: the cards go by very quickly. The rules suggest you go around in a circle so that everyone gets to read cards once, and then the game is over. But the game is so much fun that it never ends there. In one sitting, you can end up going through a quarter of the words -- that means potentially, you could finish the entire game just by playing it four times! This is disappointing, especially if you play through the whole thing right after buying it. My suggestion is if you like the game that much, make up your own cards with your friends. I would still buy a copy of the original game though, to play through the original cards, and of course, for the endlessly entertaining buzzer. :)
Taboo was a classic when it first hit the party scene, right up there with Pictionary. It is a riot! And for years I would have said the best "verbal-charades" type game out there. Now I have to recommend Electronic Catchphrase as an alternative. It's a little different, with no "taboo" words, but otherwise very similar, and the advantage is that it is all contained in a little electronic disc that gives words/phrases and keeps score for you. Electronic Guesstures is another self-contained game that will elicit great fun and laughter from you and your friends. If you don't really like those little electronic gadgets, I'd say Taboo is still the way to go.

Great game. Can't give it 5-stars because it is exactly what I expected (5-stars only is for wayyyy over the top stuff). This is just what it said it was, so no worries!Published 2 months ago by Twisted Swisher
Taboo is just a wonderful game that I cannot recommend enough! For those who are uninitiated, in Taboo, you get a set of cards with one word that you're trying to describe. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Srinivasan
