This is simply a great game. The play is incredibly easy to learn and there is almost no setup time. All players get a few cards and they take turns giving clues. On your turn, you give a clue to one of your cards that is neither too specific nor too vague. Once you give a clue, the other players pick a card from their hand that they think most closely fits your clue. You take all the cards, shuffle them up, and then lay them face down on the table. A player gets points whenever someone picks their card. The only exception is if you are the clue-giver and everyone picks your card, in which case you get zero points. That's why you want your clue to be good, but not perfect. The fun and the difficulty lie in figuring out the perfect clue for each card and that will change every time you play. Some kind of timing device would be useful, though there's not one included in the game.
Last note, the current Amazon price for this game is $75 from an external site. Though it is a great game, that's way too much to pay. I bought it from Amazon a few months ago at 1/3 that price. It may be high priced because it's sold out. If that's the case, let's hope the game gets a reprinting because it would be a shame if more people weren't able to play.
