Product Description

Think fast: You have only 10 seconds to solve the Clue and you are in a race against others! Say what comes to mind, but hurry. You may be linking together a phrase, a saying, or the name of something. If you are given the Clue 'Rush', say 'Hour'. If the Clue is 'Conventional', say 'Wisdom'. If the Clue is 'Suspension', say 'Bridge'. You'll easily get the hang of it, but don't be fooled: it can be very tricky. The Clues are designed to prompt lightning quick responses, so every second counts. Hesitate even slightly and an opponent might beat you to the answer! If you're stumped, someone gets the chance to be creative and amusing by making up a sentence to help you out. The fun is always flowing, as players take turns reading out the Clues on their cards. WHAT'S THE LINK? will keep everyone thinking, guessing and smiling...

Two words came to mind when I started playing this game: 'fun' and 'fast'. You pretty much know what to do right off the bat, and your brain is already trained to think along these lines, which makes the play familiar and almost instinctive. The idea, in a nutshell, is to 'link' words that are found together in well-known expressions/phrases. What should you say if you hear the clue 'Wishful'? Answer: Thinking. What about 'Highway'? Answer: Robbery. You get the picture. The key is to be quick off the mark after the clue is read out. That's because the question isn't usually "if" you can get the answer, but "how fast". Since you are in a race, rapid fire exchanges are the norm. Let's put it this way: you may have the answer in only 3 seconds, but if someone else says it in 2 seconds, you're out of luck (this happens a lot!).

Some clue/answer pairs are trickier than you would expect, which is why the answer sometimes rolls off your tongue, while other times you need help beyond just the initial clue. So guess the answer in 10 seconds or less and score maximum points; otherwise, a neat feature kicks in: the person presenting the clue (a.k.a. the Clue Reader) makes up a sentence using the clue (but obviously not revealing the answer), and you get another 10 seconds. Once, the clue 'Continental' was read out, but no one thought of the answer within the opening 10 second window. Then my husband (the presenter/Clue Reader at the moment) made up the sentence: "When I stay in hotels, I enjoy waking up in the morning and eating a good Continental..." - and a friend quickly shouted "Breakfast".

This game moves at a quick pace, often bordering on the frantic when answers really start to fly across the table. The "link" referred to in the name of the game is the word that usually goes with a clue. What usually follows "Starving"? "Artist" (Starving Artist). "Golden"? Why, "Opportunity" of course (Golden Opportunity). "Stir"? Crazy (Stir Crazy). "Culture"? Shock. "Chain"? Reaction. "Frequent"? Flier. "Spin"? Doctor. As you can probably tell, it's fun. The cards are filled with everyday phrases (and other combination types) that everyone knows. Don't think it's easy, because it isn't, and you still have to be the first to find the link. The part where you get to make up sentences is a really great way to offer hints.

A really great game. Seems like it would be really easy when you read about it but in all actuality it is quite challenging. For example the word Whirl depending on how you think could be whirlwind or whirlpool a lot of fun a game that moves along quickly.

Although the price seemed quite steep when the game arrived and you see the size of the small playing board and thin plastic play pieces. But I imagine the majority of the cost is in the information that goes on the cards. There are a lot of question/answers in this game and that has got to take a lot of research. I would recommend the game for purchase.
