easy to transport, it comes down to a pack of cards and 4 pencils, great for packing for holidays, kept 13-50 year olds happy for 45mins.

We brought this game to see whether it would be worth buying the full size game, I can definitely say we will be!
We played this with just 3 to start and giggled so much we cried. We also took it to the family christmas meal and had just as much fun with 6 of us. You need a good imagination to make up the answers. Highly recommend this for a fun night with friends.

The description says the game comes with 55 cards. However, there are only 20 "game" cards. The others are just for people to write their answers on, and to keep score. Compared to the main game which comes with 500 cards, this really is just a small taste of the main game.

Been years since I originally played this where it was a game of just defining words. Now, there are 5 categories so a card looks like this :

Events : Eight people were left injured in a Montenegro cafe when...
Words : Nares
Laws : In the state of Alabama, it is illegal to wear a fake...
Initials : B.C.C.C.A.
People : Reuben H Donnelly

Players take it in turn to be the "Dasher", who rolls the die to see which category will be played in the next round. (S)he then reads out the category question (example is above). The other players (try to!) either finish off the sentence, or define the word/initials/person - they write this on a card which they hand to the Dasher. The Dasher then reads out the definitions which were written down including the real definition which is printed on the back of the Balderdash card. Each player then says which they believe is the real definition and points are awarded to each player based on whether they were correct, or if someone else chose their definition.

It's a good game, you'll probably want the full sized version 20th Anniversary Absolute Balderdash which also has a box and lots more cards.

Packaging is misleading,looks like it comes in a tub or similar, but really very little to it and you need to find your own container. seems like a lot of money for what you actually get - but OK as a travel version or introduction to the original game.

This mini game is fantastic, we've had some really fun nights playing it. Its very compact which makes it easy to pack in a suitcase etc. The only thing I would say is if you are intending on buying it as a cheaper option instead of the larger full sized board game I wouldn't as there isn't a quarter of the cards that are in the full game and if you played it several times you'd soon be doing the same questions again.

The quantity of question cards is very small and half the tiny pack was made up with useless score cards (I have paper at home for that!) The font size is minute, difficult for the older family members to see, why so mean with the card size. I don't need ikea style pencils either, why make it look more than it is. Very frustrating. A real RIPOFF!!!

Great game but as it is a travel set the cards are small with tiny writing - be warned you need a magnifying glass and good lighting to read them.

For quite some time i have had a hole in my boardgaming life. Monopoly, scrabble and even the mighty trivial pursuit could not satisfy me. However one fateful holiday this all changed - i found balderdash. Balderdash is the Pep Guardiola managed Barcelona of boardgames as it is classy, sophisticated and is simply league of its own. Balderdash is fun for family, friends and is also a top notch ice-breaker for those awkward social gatherings.

This slimmed down version is a welcome addition to the balderdashing franchise. It is small and durable but retains the true essense of balderdash. i am about to depart for a month of travelling and balderdash will be my ideal companion
