I think that they have geared this game towards younger kids now. By younger, I mean 8 - teens. The things you have to act out are significantly easier to do: Less abstract things, more physical objects. If the things are abstract, they're easy things to act out. Like waking up. Or something smelly. I also didn't like that the scoring in this version. The old one had easy and hard cards, just like this version, but for each card, one clue was worth 1 point the other 2 on the easier card, 3 and 4 points for the hard card. Now the easy card is worth 1 point, the hard 2, for both clues. When my friends and I played, we were doing all hard cards and we were guessing all four of them with plenty of time to spare. Needless to say, it was a really close game. Maybe since we're in college, we're just quicker at guessing the clues?
If you're looking for a game to play with kids, this would be great. I think that the clues are very appropriate for younger people. However, I was hoping for something a little more difficult, with a greater range of scoring for a more competitive game.
The rules are slightly different, as are the cards. I can't find the MB version in any of the stores anymore, so I bought the one by PB. The main difference is the scoring. In the MB version, the cards had 2 words, one was worth more than the other. In the PB version, there are still 2 words, but they are worth the same amount (blue cards are 1 point and red cards are 2 I believe). There is also no place to keep the team's score (except for holding onto the cards, which is why I guess the points are by color instead of the variation like the MB version).
The game is still fun at parties and everything, but I preferred the old cards. The new ones just don't make it as fun and challenging.
So, some good things. The new timer feels a lot sturdier. The old one was flimsy and would start on its own too easily (although my old copy was older than me...). My friends seem more willing to play this version due to the new card setup. You can still try to write on the timer if you want (there's a blank area), but there's no labels and it might not come off... The box is a lot smaller than the old version.
The bad, nothing much except for my unwillingness to change. My biggest upset is the box though. It's hard to get the game open, and if you want to put it back in and keep it looking new in the box, it's hard to pull off as well. The packaging doesn't really effect the play of the game.
This game is awesome. At least one person in your set of friends should own it. If you do play, you can't be timid or afraid. You have to be out going.Read more ›
First, the physical features:
1. The cards are smaller, thinner, and flimsy.
2. The cards are stacked in the box on their sides, rather than vertically. They don't stick out of the box when the box is sitting open. This means it's much harder to remove and replace the cards while playing.
3. The font on the cards is smaller, so it's harder to see the words from a standing position while it's your turn.
4. The game storage box, which is a sturdy box in the old version, now is flimsy and won't hold up.
Now, regarding the game strategy features:
1. They have removed the word-point values on the cards. In the 1990 version, each card has an easier word (1 or 2 points) and a harder word (3 or 4 points). This was a fun and important part of the strategy, when you decided for each card whether to play it safe with the easy word or take a risk and go for a higher score. Now that part of the game has been removed.
2. All the words are easier, so much of the fun is gone. The harder words often result in acting out all kinds of antics to get the point across. This can be hilarious. Now with just the easier words you make a simple gesture or point at something and it's over.
If you've never played the older version, then you'll likely still think this is a fun game, especially for kids. But take my advice, for a much better game, go to ebay and get the 1990 version, which seems to be readily available.
Bottom line: Go to eBay and get the 1990 version!

The box was a little smooshed when I received it, like someone had been sitting on it, but I love the game.Published 3 months ago by Melissa
Purchased this particular model from my local Barnes & Noble; it's a piece of crap. The cards stick out maybe a centimeter and once I start the timer, they don't move down at all,... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Raymond Casunuran
