The buzzer sounds to end the turn, sometimes after just a few seconds. The random factor adds to the intensity, though I do wish you could adjust it to short, medium, and long intervals based on how you want to play. Even though the game doesn’t provide any dirty categories, save for a few involving alcohol (like “Cocktails”), the buzzer goes too fast for little ones with limited vocabularies. Heck, sometimes my family of adults can only come up with one word before the buzzer sounds. I should also point out that it’s VERY easy to accidentally leave the buzzer turned on after packing it away, in which case you’ll end up wasting the AAA batteries inside it. Then you have to uncover them using a Phillips screwdriver.
Due to how short buzzer intervals are, I’d recommend not using the “Hot Potato” rule. With this rule, certain letter cards force people to go one-by-one in a circle when calling out answers. Getting enough answers among everyone to actually go in a full circle around all the players is just about impossible, so it’s not really to your advantage to give the first answer in a Hot Potato round. My family just treats Hot Potato letter cards as normal cards.
Still, this game is a fun challenge as you try to conjure up fitting words as quickly as you can. It can also provide some laughs. For instance, in my family, the category was “Cleaning Supplies” and the letter was “W,” so my dad called out, “Wives!” That turned out interesting. If you’re in the mood for some sharp, quick thinking and some laughs, this game can meet your need.
I'm glad I purchased this game. It's better than spending money on an electronic game because it encourages interaction with the family, provokes thought, and generates loads of laughs!
