Balderdash is the classic bluffing game that is hilarious beyond belief!
The hilarious bluffing game that you can’t always believe what you read. Each card lists People, Words, Initials, Movies and Laws that you’ve probably never heard of. But that’s where the fun really begins, because you get to make up an answer that’s as silly or as serious as you want. Players make up phony answers, read them off along with the correct answer, and others vote on which answer is real. You score points for guessing the correct answer or successfully bluffing the other players. Would you believe that in Fairbanks, Alaska, it was illegal to serve beverages to a moose? You better, ’cause it’s true.
Is it real or is it Balderdash?
Each player rotates being The “Dasher” (or judge). During each player’s turn as The Dasher, he/she rolls the dice which will indicate which category to select. The Dasher then reads the unknown name, initials, or phrase on the card and the other players record what they think the correct answer is on their Balderdash pads. Once everyone has submitted an answer, the Dasher reads each answer aloud, including the correct answer and players vote on which answer they believe is the actual answer. Players score points and advance on the board by guessing the correct answer, or by bluffing other players to select their answer as the correct answer. The first player to the end of the board wins! So, grab the bull by the horns and play Balderdash, the game that’s hilarious beyond belief.

To play, each player is given a pencil and slips of paper, and the active player draws a card and rolls a die to see which category to play. There are words, initials, names of inventors, dates, movie titles, etc. (depending on which version of the game you have), and each player is then supposed to make up a definition of the word, plot synopsis for the movie title, event that happened on the date, etc. while the active player writes down the actual answer from the card. Then all the slips are handed to the active player and shuffled, and he or she reads them out. Everyone votes on which they think was the correct answer, and points are scored accordingly. It's great fun in coming up with some of the most out-there responses, because the actual response is almost always just as out-there or even more so. It's even funnier when someone in the group actually knows the correct definition of the word or the synopsis of the movie title, if only for the responses of "How do you know THAT?" from everyone else. We've found at least one movie from MST3K on there, for instance.
We played it for the first time last night and at first I thought the concept was kind of weird and wondered if we were even going to like it.
Then we played a few hands and I fell in love with it. If you are a writer, like I am, you are going to love this one. I think too it will be much more fun with more than two people even though it can be played with just two.
You have a word, phrase, name, initials, and laughable laws that you most likely NEVER heard of and your job is to make up what it means. Your imagination can run wild with this one. Then everyone votes on which one they think is the actual answer. If they pick yours you get big points!
It's so much fun though and I can't wait to play with more people.
with some friends in their home. It was the most fun I had had in a long time. I don't know when I laughted so much. This game takes imagination and the ability to keep a straight face while making up incredible facts. SO much fun!So easy to play!
After getting tired of waiting for another game night to be scheduled, I realized that I could simply buy one for my own, to have on hand for when freiends and family find themselves together. There is no lack of conversation once this gets going!
It's a lot of fun, This is a newer version, we have the older one also. But got the newer board this time. WHen family or friends get together, this is always one of the games we play.
They give you a word and you have to define it. Then one person guesses who said what. You advance on the board as to right answers you get right. So you have to be creative, but really there are no right or wrong answers. so anyone one can play. No one knows the what the words mean, so easy for everyone. In the end your learning also.
