Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Taboo is the game of unspeakable fun. Can you get your team to say Brain Freeze? What if you can't say Ice Cream, Headache, Eating, Cold or Fast? Not so easy now, is it? When you play Taboo, the obvious clues are strictly taboo. You have to give creative, carefully-worded clues to get your team to guess words fast. But don't mention unmentionables, or you'll get the buzzer and lose the point. Once you've mastered the classic game, you can use the game-changer die to mix it up. If it lands on One Guesser, only one teammate can guess on your turn. With 4 other possibilities on the die, you'd better be shrewd, quick-thinking and willing to take some risks - but don't get shut down by the buzzer. Taboo and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Product Description


Taboo

Taboo, the laugh out loud, out-of-your-seat game of forbidden words. In the Taboo game, you need to get your team to guess the secret word, but the obvious clues are strictly off-limits. To get your team to say pinball, would you say arcade, game, flippers, tilt or roll? In this game you can't because all of those words are strictly forbidden. Get your team to guess as many words as you can while you race against the clock. But watch out; if you say a forbidden word, the other team will "squeak" you and you lose the word.

Taboo can provide tons of fun and keep you sitting on the edge of our seat. You want your team to say the guess word on the card, but you can't use any of the forbidden words in your clues. Get ready for hilarious moments as you race against the clock to give your team the best descriptions and clues possible. If you say a forbidden word, you'll get interrupted with the squeaker and lose your turn.

Are you ready for some nail-biting excitement and quick thinking? Can you get your team to say the word "snore" without using the words sleep, night, noise, or nose in your description? This unpredictable party game will keep you on your toes as you think fast and build up the points for each card guessed correctly. The team with the most points wins.

Even if you have played the popular Taboo game before, this fun fast-paced game has been updated with 100-plus phrases not seen in previous versions. The content includes topics that are relevant to today's pop culture and hottest trends.

It is a great gift and nice game for good family fun.
Lynn Wong
Inconveniently, the new cards don't fit into the old game's card holder, either.
Jenna Dubois
I received my order in good time and the box was sealed in plastic.

This would be a fine game if you have never played the older editions of Taboo because then you wouldn't know what you'd be missing.

Positive Updates:
+ The biggest asset to this game is the update of the cards -- I was getting tired of describing "Y2K" from the last edition to people who don't remember it even ever existed. There are also more words included in this game -- they printed 2 words per side (for a total of 4) instead of 1 word per side (for a total of 2) from the previous editions. The other nice thing about this edition is that the MSRP is at a lower price.

+ "Game Changer" Die: if you're tired of the classic game play, the game changer die adds extra stipulations like one guesser (only one person can guess), double the time (play through 2 cycles of the sand timer), statue (clue giver has to sit still), and all play (both teams guess from one clue giver). We liked the option of this game changer, but we stuck to the classic rules and opted to not use the die.

+ This edition is at a lower MSRP than the previous editions.

Negative Updates:
- The Taboo buzzer (one of the best things about the original game) is now replaced with a squeaky toy. Yes, the instruction manual now says "squeak" your opponent as opposed to the iconic "buzz" your opponent. While the squeaker doesn't require batteries, the squeaky noise is not as dramatic as the older buzzer.

- Taboo no longer includes the plastic card holder or the "easel." Previously, you put the stack of cards on this holder to help expedite the process of flipping through during game play. Without this, it was a bit awkward and we were fumbling to find a place to put the cards that we got and the ones that we missed.

The buzzer is a squeek toy more than a buzzer. So if you have dogs around, they will mistake the "buzzer" for their own squeeky toy. The cards have 4 words on them instead of two, which is fine, but if you want to play the way it originally is played, without the dice, good luck because there is no card holder. Inconveniently, the new cards don't fit into the old game's card holder, either. I was hoping it'd be the same as the old game, just with new words. Guess not.

I played it for the first time with a large group of friends and we had a lot of fun. There was a lot of laughter with the clues that were provided. Some of the people who had played earlier versions of the games thought this one was tougher. We did find at least one major spelling error and I do wish companies would take more time with QA. The word "anatomy" was spelled "anatomay".

It's just like the original. The only difference is the little squeaker and there's not little box to hold the cards while you're playing, but the box it comes in has little slots for you to put the cards in while you're playing. I had a blast playing it with family and friends :)

Game works but is a cheap version (we love Taboo and have been playing for years). No electronic buzzer like we are used to using at relatives' house. The buzzer is actually like a dog squeaker toy in the shape of buzzer. If we knew this, we would have opted for the more expensive version.

So many novelty over-complicated games out there now that require you to use social media or technology. This is an oldie but goodie.

This game is one of my favorites - it's fun, makes you think on your feet, and challenges you to find shared knowledge with your teammates. Unfortunately these attributes are only if you have a solid grasp of the English language. I've tried playing with a few non-native speakers whose English language skills weren't fully developed and they didn't have a good time. They were challenged because they were unable to quickly think of synonyms and descriptions of the words on the cards.
