Well, now they have done it even better! The original leather-et word-list holders and word lists are there, but now the game comes in a neat metal tin. What a good idea! The appeal of "Password" will last forever, and now it is in a lasting case. I am definitely going to purchase this for my family, and some for gifts, too. I can't believe that Amazon is offering this wonderful-game-in-a tin for TEN bucks! I saw it first on a website that I shop on, and then I checked Amazon and it was 25% cheaper.
The rules are simple: The players pair off, and one member of the pair tries to guess the target word from one-word clues given by the partner. The play continues around to the next pair, until someone guesses it. Then you count up and record the number of hints that took, for each word, and, at the end, the pair with the smallest number wins. The game increases in speed and excitement as vocabulary and communication skills are put to the test....
I hope this helps...I'm going to order mine right now, before everyone discovers this deal, and they run out of them!
It's similar to Taboo, except that you can only give one word clues. This version seems much harder than the TV version, which makes it a fun challenge. For example, one word we saw recently was "harried". A lot of times, it comes down to how many synonyms you know. Someone with a limited vocabulary will not enjoy this game.
Overall it's a solid purchase for board game fans that want a little intellectual challenge.
But one of the reviewers is right that the words can be tough. This makes Password fun for adults with a wide vocabulary, but the game is hard to play as a family. It would be awesome if a junior version were created for 8-14 year olds. Password wouldn't need to be dumbed-down but it could contain words with frames of reference and items kids are likely to be familiar with. And perhaps there could be more flexibility with the rules: permitting brand names and proper names as clues, for instance.
Kids will like to play a game like Password that use a gratifying amount of brain power and give them the pleasure of the "ah-ha" moment. But right now it's a bit too frustrating for kids under 14.
It's got to be one of the World's Best Games!

It was practically new! Most of the cards weren't even separated. This was just like the game my grandpa and I used to play. It's tricky but everyone loves how hard it is to play. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Norman

My nephew and niece (12 and 13) enjoyed the game with the adults, but we had to skip some of the words that we thought were just too difficult for them. Read morePublished on January 20, 2014 by o3man
We play Password at dinner & sometimes it's tough to come up with words so this helps. Plus the words are challenging, which is good.Published on January 5, 2014 by traylady
Fun and portable. Does not come with a metal box just a cardboard one. I need to find more cards as we quickly played through those provided.Published on November 24, 2013 by Justin Karam
