Product Description

Product Description

Sometimes, truth can be every bit as strange as fiction, and fiction can sound like truth. The challenge of Urban Myth is to differentiate between fact and modern folklore-between what you thought you knew and what you have heard as gospel truth from a trusted friend. With more than 1000 questions, and in such categories as Celebrity, Health, Crime, Classics, Nature, and Business, Urban Myth will test your pop culture savvy and provide excitement and surprises. EXAMPLE: On the brink of bankruptcy, Enron paid $55 million in bonuses to 500 of its employees while laying off another 5,100 with $4,500 severance packages (True). Includes game board, 6 game tokens, 6 True/Myth voting cards, 700 question cards, and instructions. For 2 or more players ages 12 and up.

From the Manufacturer

Urban Myth is the thrilling and fun new pop culture board game about what you know, what you thought you knew and what you have heard as gospel truth from a trusted friend. From Hollywood hijinks to old wives' tales, Wall Street capers to campfire lore, Urban Myth will test the limits of your gullibility and credulity like never before. Truth or Myth? You decide. Comes with over 1,000 questions.

We picked this game up recently, since it sounded like a lot of fun. I love reading about urban myths, so I thought this would be a blast.

It's fun, but...I dunno, I need something that raises the bar a bit.

You travel around some squares and someone reads you what could or could not be an urban myth. Then everyone votes on whether or not they think it's true. The answer true or myth is revealed, and everyone moves, or doesn't move if they've gotten it wrong, and play continues.

We recently bought a pile of board games, including Cranium, Scene It, Trivial Pursuit (can't remember which edition, but it's in a gold box), and Urban Myth, and Urban Myth is the one we've played least. Not that it isn't fun and interesting, it just isn't AS fun and interesting as others.

I originally bought Urban Myth over the holidays, struck by what a promising concept for a game it promised to be. How wrong I was.

For starters the box is deceiving; the age recommendation is 12 and over which couldn't be further for the truth. This is definitely not a family game. The box, with the cutesy picture and tame questions posed on the back are misleading to say the least. At least 85% of the questions on our first go were fairly high in the morbidity/death factor (including one wince-inducing question about whether or not infant carcasses had been used as mob drug cartel. Mercifully, it was a myth.)

I'm no prude, and would have had no problem with the topics had the game not made promises that the whole family could play. From now on I'll certainly investigate the content before inviting the kids to come join us.

And, err- how can I put this? The shape of the game pieces are... interesting. Of course, I noticed this right away but just chalked it up to my dirty, dirty mind. But as soon as the kids left the room for a moment, the somewhat conservative mother leaned into me and whispered "Is it just me, or do those game pieces look like male _________?" Okay, I'm more or less just kidding with that last observation. Still, this game gets a big thumbs down in the family friendly department.

That aside, I'm afraid I cannot recommend the game adult players as well. Urban Myth also fails as a board game... as far as we could ascertain the board only served one particular purpose and a fairly feeble one at that. (The goal is actually collecting enough letter cards to either spell 'truth' or 'myth'.) Otherwise, you just mindlessly navigate the board until someone collects enough cards based solely on the questions.

This is one of the best new games out there. A friend told me about this game claiming it was such a riot. So I bought it and played with another group of friends and we all had a blast.
This game is fun, interesting and educational. A lot of stories that I believed true are in fact myth. The graphics are very creative and compliments the pop culture style. Very cool game.

I received a copy of Urban Myth as a birthday present - and I have to say it's one of the best games I've played in a long time! My whole family played it after dinner and it was a hoot. There's all kinds of urban legends in there that you think are true but really aren't. The only criticism I have is that the instructions didn't tell us to shuffle the cards; we had to figure that one out on our own. All in all, though, Urban Myth was well worth playing and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good board game.

This game is a lot of fun, but should be taken with a grain of salt. Not all of the legends listed as true actually are. Looks like the creators were taken in by some of the very urban legends that they are quizzing us on. (...)

This game is convoluted. The object is to correctly answer true/false questions, and be the only one that does it that is standing on a square that matches the category of the card that is being read, so that you can get the card and hopefully spell either TRUE or MYTH and win the game. If there's a tie, you get to read another card. My friends and I played it tonight and about 20-30 minutes into the game, we quit. The game does still have value. Some of the facts or myths it gives you are interesting, but lack much real substance or sources. Ditch the board and if you must have some kind of contest with it, it would probably work well as a drinking game.

This game translates perfectly into a study session for college groups. Have everyone replace the regular questions with questions from your school subject and it brings a nice twist to just running through flashcards together.
