Product Description

Product Description

Truth Be Told is a revealing laugh-out-loud, pretend to know your friends party game! Each round one of the players reads and answers a question card such as, “Truth Be Told, my favorite snack is ____.” The player writes a truthful answer – potato chips. All of the other players write what they think the person reading the card would answer – pretzels, mixed nuts or maybe even chicken wings. All of the cards are then read aloud and players try to guess the true answer. If players match the truthful answer, they score or if their bluff receives the most votes as the true answer, they score. Recommended for 3 – 8 players, ages 14+. Contents include 564 Questions (141 cards), 8 markers, 8 Fill in the Blank Cards, 8 Paddles and 1 Scoreboard.

I laughed so hard I cried... twice. When my friend said she was having people over to play board games, I looked for any excuse I could to get out of it. I'm not much of a game person in a social setting. I either get extremely competitive or frustrated if people aren't staying on task. But I had an amazing time. This is the perfect game for a small party whether you're playing with people you know well or acquaintances, because it generates non-stop conversation. My favorite part is hearing how other people think you would answer a question about yourself. It's nothing invasive or super specific and you could still play with total strangers. The rules are easy and the scoring is pretty straightforward. The dry erase boards are easy to use. The only drawbacks were minor. I kept losing the top to my marker. I imagine if you played this regularly, you'd want to have some extra markers on hand. You need at least three people to play.

I read about this game on the "Buffalo Games" website (the makers of the game). Based on that, I bought this game at a game con in Maryland. It does encourage conversation and the questions will reveal things about you and your fellow players - but not anything risque, so kids and adults can play. Questions we played included Truth Be Told (they all start with this):

My favorite board game is __________
My favorite historical figure is ________
The one household chore I hate is _________

When it's your turn, everyone tries to figure out the answer you wrote down. The person whose turn it is collects the answers from all the players. After hearing all the answers, players then use their paddles to write down what they think the right response is. You score points by guessing the person's response or by having someone vote for your bluff response. If there are any duplications, the person duplicating has to come up with another answer. First person to score 15 points wins the game.

A nice game with no racy questions. The markers are similar to the ones in Wits and Wagers, which can dry up or otherwise not work properly. Go to your stationery store and spend money on better markers if you plan on playing this game often. You need at least three or four to play, ideally five or six is better. Up to eight can play. A good party game to get people talking.

If you're like me, "Truth" in the title of a game brings back horrid memories of embarrassing revelations at adolescent slumber parties. Sigh of relief, the "admissions" in this game are not terribly intrusive. You may be asked to reveal the name of a celebrity you've met, or a terrible job you once had. I enjoyed this game b/c there was the opportunity for discussion and laughs and I LOVE the dry-erase marker/paddle combo! So much better than golf pencils and pads of paper that seemed to be the solution for games of this style in the past. There was some controversy and confusion over the scoring system at one point, and I'm not sure we ever really resolved it, but this game is about laughs and possibly introspection, score keeping gave it structure, but is ultimately relatively unimportant.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Unfortunately, I have lots of complaints about this game. I mean we laughed and had fun only because the game was bad, but no one will ever play it again sadly.

1. Hard to play with multiple age groups. Played at a family birthday party.
2. Dry erase comes off card too easily, so because they have to be passed to the "host" of the turn and answers hidden, it is really hard given any touching takes the words off.
3. Many questions were too vague, so the answers didn't go together. Example: When I hosted, a question was, "I would go back to school for ______" I though immediately of going back to high school and wrote to get back my high school weight, my father though going back to college, so he wrote dietitian, my son I'm not sure what he was thinking wrote math class, my mother wrote I wouldn't go back, etc.
4. Here is where the laughs came in, in trying to get the whole family to understand how to play. It was not that the game was hard to play by any means, but there were a lot of rules and the scoring took some getting used to. Plus the who writes what where and where that goes with the Truth Be Told cards and the paddles, etc.
5. After playing, I could also see how in the wrong group, this kind of game could leave hurt feelings (had mine hurt once, but hid it), fights, etc.

I hate to give bad reviews, but I really don't recommend this game :( I gave it 2 stars rather than one only because it gave us one night of fun in trying to figure it out and complaining about it.

This game appealed to me when I saw that it was a combination of Imaginiff and Balderdash. It definitely lived up to my expectation! Played it in a group of 7 adults and it had us laughing frequently, plus we learned more about each other.

Since the questions are open-ended, your group can make this game whatever they want! Can be fun but also can be serious.

I look forward to playing it again!

I'm not generally a fan of big group games but this was a really fun experience. We played with a group of people, some of whom I knew really well and some of whom I'd only met once before - but it was still a lot of fun to try to guess which was the correct answer for everyone. Everyone writes their guesses on dry-erase cards and paddles, and the reveal of answers can be really hilarious. I'm thinking about getting this game to take back for holidays with the family. There are a lot of questions that offer some fun and quirky insights to people you might not think of asking yourself (though nothing too personal - which was a bonus!).
