    1. Ms J Lamb

      It’s harder than you think especially when you get the rule cards. Great for kids and adults.

    2. Aly F

      Fun for all reading ages! We have played this as a family (1 teen and 1 preteen plus mom and dad) and had a blast. I hope they sell additional cards as we have been through all of them a few times already and eventually you pick up on how people describe certain things but there is always a new challenge in this game regardless. This is a great gift!

    3. Susie Millard

      This is a great game for all ages and certainly makes one realise how often we all say….uuummmm!

      We found this game when visiting a board game cafe and had to buy it for home. It is a brilliant game – so much fun. It’s easy to play, but difficult to do. It’s great fun, but infuriating at the same time, especially when the rule cards come into play. It has everything a great family game should have without being difficult to learn and can be played by all ages. Recommended.

      I think this is quite a fun game for family and friends – initially it can be a bit hard for people to grasp but as the game gets going everyone seems to understand it.

      I think it’s best with someone to adjudicate, move the pieces watch the timer etc., especially if there are new people playing.

      In terms of build quality, the pieces are a bit basic (small blocks of wood) but the board feels great and the cards are pretty standard. Overall good.

    7. Mary Waskiewicz

      This was a hit at game night! Instructions were quick and we were able to play immediately. Games go pretty fast. Using two teams was perfect. One team does the challenge while the other team listens for rules being broken. It was just as fun being the listening team. The phrases in game play ranged from easy to impossible so there was a good blend. Lots of laughs throughout!

    8. Summer Hevican

      This game, is absolutely perfect. We’ve had so much fun playing this. I purchased it for my niece because she always, always says “Umm.” We were in side splitting laughter, watching her try not to say it. And then of course, failing. It’s not just the word “umm” either. Along the way, there will be other words which are forbidden. Please get this game if you want a good laugh with family or friends!

    9. Ashley

      Love this game so much and so glad I bought it.Our family was yelling and laughing so hard.Watch you, your teammates and opponents make the same mistakes over and over while trying to multitask and rush to explain to your partners what words you have with a list of words you cant say before the timer goes off at the same time as the other team is trying to catch you breaking rules.Both stressful and funny.Gets harder as you play longer as more rules are added.Lots of fun! Saw tik toks of people playing it and laughing so I had to buy it.
