FOR THOSE WHO'VE ALREADY PLAYED TABOO:

This particular edition, with the white box, is the most recent one (copyrighted in 2010). The edition before it is the 10th anniversary, I believe. There's a number of changes in this one, including:
- new cards (also differently sized than in previous versions)
- a different buzzer
- different cardholder
- addition of the "game-changer" die

COMPONENTS (3/5)

CARDS (3/5)
Yes, there are four words per card, two on each side. However, they are not oriented in the same direction. The top word is right-side up, while the bottom word is upside down. Thus, no matter how the card is oriented, the top half will be readable (think playing cards). I didn't have any trouble or confusion with which word to give clues for, or any significant trouble reading the text, for that matter (some cards have white text on yellow, which can be a minor nuisance). There are 1,080 words (270 cards), giving it 72 more words than previous editions (which have 504 cards with two words per side). The cardstock definitely IS thinner, but either way, it can still stand up to people's frantic flipping.

Some words are indeed very current, perhaps too current. You'll be seeing things like "frenemy" and "Octomom", which will probably be out of lexicon by the time you read this. HOWEVER, the majority of words are still normal-- that is, not slang words. Also, keep in mind that all Taboo sets include contemporary words along with normal ones. For example, the previous edition (purple-and-white) includes such words as "You've got mail" (of AOL fame), Monica Lewinsky, and car phone.

We've had this game in its original version for a long time and all of us laughed hard for a couple nights recently(ages 49, 48, 17, 15, 13). However some words were just too dated (e.g."coonskin"). I decided to buy this most recent version as an indulgence since it's quite expensive. The quality was very disappointing on most items in the box. Cardstock is thinner. Words are doubled up on single cards to save space, but this is distracting. Poor choice of print color makes reading difficult (white on yellow for some cards). The original version card holder is pretty well designed. But the new cards don't fit well in the new holder. The buzzer has always looked a little odd, but my daughter thinks this one looks like a hard boiled egg. Her teenage friends didn't like the new game either. We didn't even try the buzzer. it's back to the original for us. I'll start looking for some previous updates like the 2000 version instead. This one is getting returned.

This game is great for any size group, and it makes you think! The game makes you try to describe something without using the most common words you might think of, so you must dig into your vocabulary and come up with interesting ways to make someone say a word.

Hours of fun...can be played by all ages...clean family fun... we have played for hours without running out of cards.

Wow wow wow. I had so much fun playing this game, it has paid for itself many times over in fun. It is one of the few games that I have that I can truly say can be played by all ages, it is a uniting force at family get-togethers.
I would highly recommend the purchase of this game for anyone who’s interested in enjoying themselves at family get-togethers, parties or even at work functions.
The object of the game is to get persons on your team to say certain words but there are certain other words which are taboo in which you may not see in trying to get your team members to save the particular word which has been assigned to you. It is necessary that to be very creative in trying to put forward the word that you have been assigned, and you would have to think outside the box in order to do this. This is actually very good training for little children in training their brains to think outside the box and be creative and coming up with solutions that are smart and funny at the same time. It does not matter if you use the word in the context of another word that sounds like it, for example if the words you have been assigned is “male” then in order to get your teammates to say the word you can actually use it in the context of “mail”, or that it takes is some creativity and fun in order to enjoy yourself playing this game with your friends and family.
Go ahead and purchase it right now and let the fun times begin.

IT's just one of those games that's fun for everyone, particularly larger groups.
You need at least 4 players for this game, but it's worth it to get some friends together. I've loved this game since I was a kid and this newer addition has more words. It also has different ways to play the game besides the original way. I think it keeps a already excellent game fresh.

I cannot forsee any problems with the game. Mine came in mint condition.

Can you get your teammates to say, "Brain Freeze" without using the words Ice Cream, Headache, Eating, Cold, Fast or any parts of those words? The faster you can get through words, the more points your team will rack up before the timer runs out. But be careful. Say a Taboo word, and the point goes to the other team.

This version of Taboo has two words or phrases to guess on each side of the cards, doubling your fun. There's also a di that lets you play a more challenging game, if you're up to it. As for the buzzer, we've never used the buzzers that come with the game, and we won't start now. We always just make a buzzing sound and point to the Taboo word that was said. Quick, easy, fun, and no batteries required.

This game is a favorite with any group of four or more teens or adults. We've played it with friends, family, and strangers, and it's always a hit.
