The short description is that it's a mix of Taboo and Charades. You start with a stack of 40 titles (movies, tv shows, books, etc). You're going to work through these titles, every single one, 3 times.
You're divided into teams of 2, and in Round 1 you have to get your partner to guess the title. You can say pretty much anything, with a few exceptions. You also can't pass. After 30 seconds, you keep the cards you got and hand the leftover stack to the left. Once the stack is empty you tally up the cards, reshuffle them, and move to Round 2.
In Round 2 you now have to get your partner to guess the title by saying 1 word, after which you can gesture as in Charades all you want. Your partner only gets 1 guess before you have to move on to the next card. You can pass if you want. Again, once the cards have all been claimed the round ends and you tally points.
By Round 3 you can't say anything to get your partner to guess, and like Round 2 they get 1 guess. It's charades only. It would be pretty hard to get someone to guess anything in 30 seconds normally, but thankfully the first 2 rounds have familiarized everyone with not only the titles available, but the most obvious ways to describe them in a short time. Again, after the last card you tally and score.
It may not sound that funny from the description, and it starts out slow, but by Round 3 the group has established their own shorthand ways to describe the limited titles, many of which will end up being quickly formed in-jokes from previous rounds.Read more ›
40 cards are taken out of the deck and evenly dispersed among each player in the game. So if there's 8 players, each gets 5 of those 40 cards. And then each player gets two more cards, so in the scenario where there's 8 players and each get 5 cards, they now have 7. The cards in Title Recall will have nothing more than a Title (of a song, book, movie, TV show) and a hint on the card of what it is, which you should relay to the person you're giving clues to in the first round ("This is a TV show with The Fonz").
With the cards in your hand, you look through the clues and discard the two most difficult cards. When everybody does this, you're back down to 40 cards.
The discards go back into the box and the remaining 40 cards make up the deck of the game, and that deck is what'll be used for the clue giving throughout. Teams are made up of two players per team. One person, with the deck of 40, gives clues to their teammate for 30 seconds. In round 1, you can't pass on a card. So you keep giving clues till your time is up, and if your partner gets one right, you keep the card and move onto the next. When Time's Up, you give the remaining stack of cards to the next team. And cards are removed as they're guessed, and eventually the remaining cards go back to your teammate. This is the start of where it gets pretty fun, because now your teammate is inevitably going to give clues to cards that...Read more ›
Get this game if:
- You loved the original Time's Up, and are looking for some variety.
- You enjoy the party game Celebrities. (Both this and the original Time's Up are basically souped-up versions of that game.)
- You have a better head for names of works of art, songs, etc., than you do for the people who made them.
- You enjoy verbally and physically expressive party games.
- You aren't afraid of looking like a fool. In fact, you enjoy it.
If any of these describe you, definitely consider this game. If you agree with three or more of these statements, I highly recommend the game to you. Also check out THE Book of Word Games: Parlett's Guide to 150 Great and Quick-to-Learn Word Games and Dixit: Odyssey.
There are four rounds in the game, with the final round being optional. The same forty cards are used for all of the rounds, so it can really pay off to pay attention to everyone's clues. The first round is giving multiple clues to get your teammate(s) to guess the title on the card. You can use spoken or visual clues to describe the title. The second round, however, is a single word clue in conjunction with visual clues. The third round is charades with noises (no words) and the fourth round is charades without any movement.
I have shared this game with friends and family members. It seems that 6 or 8 is the ideal number, and an even number of players works best. It takes about an hour to complete a game. We have enjoyed this game so much that we have created extra cards to use in play. It is easily expanded by just adding a pack of notecards. A thirty second timer and a scorepad are the only tools used in the game.
The only drawback for this version is pretty minor. The original version includes a description of every name used in the game, while Title Recall does not include any such "answer key."
