This particular edition, with the white box, is the most recent one (copyrighted in 2010). The edition before it is the 10th anniversary, I believe. There's a number of changes in this one, including:
- new cards (also differently sized than in previous versions)
- a different buzzer
- different cardholder
- addition of the "game-changer" die
Yes, there are four words per card, two on each side. However, they are not oriented in the same direction. The top word is right-side up, while the bottom word is upside down. Thus, no matter how the card is oriented, the top half will be readable (think playing cards). I didn't have any trouble or confusion with which word to give clues for, or any significant trouble reading the text, for that matter (some cards have white text on yellow, which can be a minor nuisance). There are 1,080 words (270 cards), giving it 72 more words than previous editions (which have 504 cards with two words per side). The cardstock definitely IS thinner, but either way, it can still stand up to people's frantic flipping.
Some words are indeed very current, perhaps too current. You'll be seeing things like "frenemy" and "Octomom", which will probably be out of lexicon by the time you read this. HOWEVER, the majority of words are still normal-- that is, not slang words. Also, keep in mind that all Taboo sets include contemporary words along with normal ones. For example, the previous edition (purple-and-white) includes such words as "You've got mail" (of AOL fame), Monica Lewinsky, and car phone.Read more ›
You need at least 4 players for this game, but it's worth it to get some friends together. I've loved this game since I was a kid and this newer addition has more words. It also has different ways to play the game besides the original way. I think it keeps a already excellent game fresh.
I cannot forsee any problems with the game. Mine came in mint condition.
For those considering whether or not to buy any version of TABOO: Buy it. The game is so much fun! There's a reason it's a classic staple of family and friends game nights. In case you don't know how to play, basically the game comes with a large pack of cards. The cards have one word at the top that you have to try to get your teammates to guess - kind of like a Charades, but with verbal description instead of acting out. The catch is that there are five *other* words on the card that you cannot say in your description. A member of the other team sits behind you and will press the buzzer if you accidentally say any of the 5 words, or do anything else illegal (like start acting the words out - which isn't allowed!) Most adults can play it, and it has the potential to increase your vocabulary. You'll enjoy it. I would say that the game will be difficult for smaller children and even older children who aren't good at words, but children over 8 who get words/have a decent-sized vocabulary will enjoy this game.
For those trying to decide on a version to buy: I don't have this version of the game - I've played this version at multiple friends' houses, though, and I used to own the original. I don't like this version of the game as much as the original. First of all, the cards are smaller and flimsier, and so is the holder. While playing the game we had the holder fall apart several times, which kind of impedes game play. I feel like the timer is also a bit shorter, although I can't be sure. The game also comes with this die that is supposed to jazz the game up by making you do things each round or something. I'm not sure what the actions are, because no one I've ever played with who has this version ever uses the die.Read more ›

I was sent the wrong item. As noted by many other reviewers, I was sent the children's version (purple box) rather than the one indicated in the description.Published 16 months ago by Alexis Goldman
