CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Imaginiff...your classmate were an invention. Which would he be - penicillin, laptop, phonograph, atomic bomb, blow dryer, zipper? The object of the game? It's simple! Just imagine what the other players are most like. Get the most popular answers to win the game. For 3 to 8 players. A 2000 Mensa Select Award Winner.
That iMAgiNiff was developed by two brothers (in Australia) makes perfect sense, because this is a board game you'll want to share with family and friends. It's simple to play. A set of names is chosen, usually the name of every player plus those of several absent friends. When it's your turn, one name is selected as the subject of the question. You pick a card--one of hundreds--that poses a question and six possible answers (for example, "Imaginiff _____ were a crime. Which would he/she be?"). Read the question aloud, plugging in the subject's name. Then read out the six answers (in this case, they range from "homicide" to "indecent exposure"). Each player picks an answer to fit the subject; those who have picked the most popular answer move forward. But though you win by advancing, winning is obviously not the point: laughter and arguments are. The questions on the cards range from the ridiculous ("Imaginiff _____ were a body part.") to the provocative ("Imaginiff _____ had to decide which of the following values is most important."). The game is a fun cross between Scruples and True Colors. --Elisa MurraySee all Product description

In essence, the game works like this: The players write on the board using nonpermanent markers the names of all the players, plus enough names of other friends, family members or celebrities to round out the total. Then each round players take turn rolling a die to see which of these persons is the subject of that round's question.
The questions are of various types, but a typical one might read as follows: "Imaginiff Kate (insert the person's name here) was a cartoon character. Which one would she be? (a) Charlie Brown. (b) Linus. (c) Lucy. (d) Snoopy. (e) Schroeder." The players -- including the subject of the question -- secretly write down their answers, and the consensus majority/plurality each get a point. Thus, the aim in Imaginiff is to be "right" the most often -- but what is right? The answer which the most players agree on. Thus, the game is a good one for fostering conversation and humor; and is a fine selection for playing with people who tend to be unpleasantly hypercompetitive in other types of game.
Imaginiff tends to elicit lots of laughter as people are compared or analogized to things in surprising ways. It can be especially fun when the subject of the question indignantly thinks that s/he fits one answer (usually the "good" or "safe" one), while the rest of the players outvote him/her by selecting a more generally-perceived (i.e. "funny") one.
Questions occasionally get slightly racy ("Imaginiff Joe was a crime... (b) indecent exposure") and in certain crowds permit a healthy amount of innuendo, but never go so far that families should be afraid to play the game together. In this respect, it is a far cry from, say, Zobmondo, which can be a fun game but is not at all the right sort of thing for the 8-14 year olds. Imaginiff is good family fun.
Unfortunately, Buffalo Games (formerly known as Flying Buffalo Games, I think) is quite a small shop and evidently unable to keep up the production volume required to meet demand on this game. If it's in stock, pick it up today or you might have to wait a long time to see it again!
