Product Description

Product Description

In Gotcha!, players make the rules and try not to get caught breaking them! During each turn, rule cards are played that can affect any of the players. For example, a rule card may read “People wearing jeans must use finger quotes while speaking” or “This player must play air guitar before playing a card.” While trying to follow the constantly changing Rule Cards, each player also tries to catch his or her opponents breaking a rule. The first player to catch a rule being broken hits the buzzer and scores! The more rules that are played (and broken), the funnier the game gets. There are thousands of possible rules combinations, making each game different. Recommended for 3 to 8 players, ages 14+. Contents include 1 game board, 8 pawns, 4 orange card mats, 1 buzzer and 110 cards (32 top rule cards, 34 bottom rule cards, 38 individual rule cards, 6 create-your-own rule cards).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not going to lie. I chose Gotcha! as a bit of a lark without realizing its full potential. With the catchy title and simplistic look, I thought this was one for the kids. It is, however, branded with an "adult" label and an age suggestion of "14+." This has absolutely nothing to do with the actual game content (which is in no way age restrictive or racy) but with the challenges of game play. Any child, though, that has reasonable intelligence and a decent attention span can appreciate the charms of the game. Enough babying already! I was playing sophisticated card games with adults by the time I graduated primary school and have a young nephew who plays complicated battle reenactment games well over my head. Simplistic in design, but surprisingly challenging in execution--Gotcha! falls into my favorite genre of board game. Anything that can make people act like fools is a keeper in my book.

The game is straightforward. Cards are drawn that indicate various behaviors that must be enacted throughout the game (by one, some, or all of the players). The goal is to buzz out anyone who fails to fulfill the rules of these increasingly overlapping challenges. There is a winner as tokens are moved along a rather superfluous game board--but this is certainly more about the journey than the finish.

Everyone has their own set of expectations when playing a game. I, personally, like to associate with friends that like to imbibe serious quantities of alcohol. Let's just say that the addition of cocktails to the party fits well with Gotcha! While this may be completely useless information to some, I can't be alone in using party games in actual party settings. We had a loud and wacky time with lots of laughs--and it's definitely a game that will make future appearances at spirited gatherings. KGHarris, 9/11.

The Mrs. and I love "game night" and there's hardly a better way to pass time with friends and family than with a good game - so we're always on the lookout for a good one.

Last night we tried out "Gotcha!" with our daughter and son-in-law, and about half the time we laughed so much we had tears in our eyes. It's a game that has a goal and you can "win", but seriously - the purpose of this game is to make you and the other players say and do things that are funny and entertaining.

A handful of cards are dealt out and during your "turn" you play your cards. There are basically 2 different kinds of cards. One kind of card specifies an activity that becomes a "rule". The rule may be that certain players have to say "I pity the fool" every time they have a turn, or repeat the last word they say-say whenever they speak-speak, if you know what I mean-mean. The 2nd kind of card specifies which players follow the "rule" - it could be males or females or everyone or the youngest or whoever is winning the game.

A buzzer is placed into the center of the table, and you "score" by catching a player breaking a "rule". There is a rudimentary "board" and when you score you move ahead 2 while the caught player moves back 1.

These are the basic rules - but it takes almost no time before you have players doing "the wave" and winking while saying required phrases at specified times... always hoping to not be caught "breaking a rule" while buzzing other players.

Our daughter is due any day now and she posted this on that well-known social networking site:
"Had such a great time with my parents tonight can't remember the last time I laughed so hard....."

So - should you try out "Gotcha!"?

If you don't.... I pity the fool-fool.

The other reviewers (who been having fun longer than me) do a great job at describing the gist.

I'm gonna add my WHAT A BLAST pennies to the pile. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving Holiday to play with our (um) grown sons! Realllllly FUN!

I pity the fool who doesn't pick this up for the holidays!!

**Playing this game with three adults and one 11-year old was SO much fun. Often I felt like a slap-happy, goofy, silly, drunken woman trying to remember who was before or after me, what I needed to do before I made a move, what someone else was supposed to do and ALL OF IT WAS HILARIOUS!! It really brought out the goofball in all of us and we were howling ~ weakened by our silliness and laughter. This game is REALLY fun -- it's not perfect, but nobody cared!! For those who enjoy interactive games that includes various ages, this is a fun one!!

This game is not so fun as it is but can easily be transformed into a fun drinking game.

We modified it by ditching the game board and creating to new cards that say Fems and Gents (to replace the sterile Males and Females cards). We allow *2* action cards to be played underneath each of the Fem/Gent cards so that everybody has to do more and inevitably loses track of their duties... and so the buzzer goes off a lot! We also implemented a punishment if you buzz and are wrong (as voted by the group): two drinks for incorrect buzzes to the buzzing person and one drink to the offender when correctly buzzed against.

Have fun with this one. We do!
