The object of the game is to be the last person to shout out a answer in order to move around the board. Each person has a subject card, these subjects range from "All about parks" to "Things in a video store" to "Vegetables" and so on. At the beginning of each turn, a letter card is turned over. If the letter is "C" for example, each person tries to come up with an answer that both matches their own subject card as well as the letter. Players race to put their card down and give an answer first and then hit the timer. Whichever subject card is played, now everyone tries to match that criteria after the timer goes off. Now, the timer has been rigged to go off at different intervals, however each interval is very short, between 10-30 seconds a turn. Whoever can get the last answer in before the timer goes off moves ahead on the board. There is also a "jump start" where if everyone looks stumped on their original subject cards someone can hit the timer and call out "jump start" and see if they can stump the other players. If nobody can come up with an answer before the timer goes off, the person who initiated the jump start will move forward 2 spaces.
It's a fast paced game that keeps you thinking and seeing how fast your brain can come up with answers of the fly, which makes it both a great party game as well as a educational game. One of the best parts about the game is that it can be played with as few as 2 people. This for me is a huge plus! It seems like nearly all my games require 4 players anymore, so this is a fun one to pull out with smaller crowds.Read more ›
Everyone has a subject card, for example you could have one that said Girl's Names, Player #2 could have Dog Breeds and Player #3 could have All About Getting Old. Then someone flips over a letter card. It's D. Player #2 puts down their subject card (Dog Breeds) and says Dalmatian and hits the buzzer. Then everyone starts saying Dog Breeds that start with D. So you say Dachshund, Player #3 says Doberman, then the buzzer goes off. Player #3 said the last Dog Breed that started with D (before the buzzer) so Player #3 moves one space on the board.
Why its so Much Fun:
I really don't know why its so much fun, it just is. People are trying so hard to think that their brain "over-heats" and starts being stupid. Like your supposed to keep your subject card to yourself but sometimes you pick it up and say it on accident. And we tend to say things that don't even start with the letter. And then there are some subjects that you can come up with some funny things for. Its not the same thing everytime. We could play 4 rounds of it and not get the same combinations, you might get Dog Breeds in the first round and the fourth round but you might not get it with D everytime.
It appeals to all ages!!
It sure does, I've played it with people from 12-grandparents and everyone has so much fun with it. And its just so easy. I mean sometimes you get stumped on one (mine are Cocktails and Things found at a Casino) but thats why you have a trade-in card that allows you to get a new subject card (one time use)
So overall this is probably my favorite game. Definitely give it a try, I know you won't be disappointed.

This game is kinda lame. We were looking for games two people could play. It might be better with more people. But it's boring and rounds go too fast with only two. Read morePublished 15 days ago by RKB_Jr
Let me be clear that the five stars is for how the game works. I give it only three for the box half-waste-of-space design and, once unpacked, loose cards. Read morePublished 1 month ago by LemonKeyLime

This is a great game, though challenging for our youngest (8). The 14+ recommendation is probably wise just in terms of being able to quickly recall different words.Published 12 months ago by Paul A. Nelson
