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.

Balderdash is a simple enough game, played with as little as two players (though I would recommend a minimum of four to really enjoy the game). The concept is as follows: A card is picked with one of five categories: Words, Initials, Movie Titles, People, and Laws. Each of these are things no one has ever heard of. Every round, one person reads the word/clue (this is the Dasher) to the others, who then do their best to write down what they think the definition/plot/etc. is. This is where everyone gets creative. You could write down a funny answer, a serious answer, or just anything. The idea is the trick everyone into voting for you. Once everyone writes down their submission, they turn in their little pieces of paper and the Dasher reads everyone's submissions to the group, randomly, with the REAL definition hidden among the rest. Everyone then votes on what they think the real one is. If you trick some people into picking your submission, you get points, which translate to moves. That's it.
The game's fun comes from the wacky submissions and the art of how you write your submissions.Read more ›
It's a good social game and if you have intelligent friends you should try it.
Only thing is the older version had longer descriptions for all 5 options thus making more room for creativity.
This is one of the most entertaining games out there. The more people, the better! People were getting so creative with their bluffs that we couldn't stop laughing as the "dasher" read the answers out loud. We played it until 1am and had to pull it back out the next morning for another round.
I'm now buying one for my husband and I. Highly recommend it for long nights of fun with family and friends.
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.
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.
