Product Description

Product Description

It should be easy to name 3 things that you brush…or 3 famous Michaels…or even 3 things that you might find behind the settee cushions…but can you do it under the pressure of 5 seconds twisting down and with the other players staring, waiting for you to get flustered? Time is not on your side, so just say what comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out as time twirls down on the unique spiral timer. It’s all in good fun with this fast-paced family game for ages 8 & up.

How to Play
The winner of 5 Second Rule is the first player to reach the finish spot through thinking quickly and holding their nerve. Each player takes a turn in the hot seat and has to answer a question, such as “Name 3 things you can paint” or “Name 3 yellow foods”. They then have five seconds to think of three answers – and say them all aloud before the small silver balls reach the bottom of the spiral timer. If three correct answers are given the player gets to move forward one space on the board. If three correct answers are not given, the same question is asked of the next player – and they have to give three completely different answers. PASS ON and SWITCH cards are there to help along the way, but watch out for the Danger Zones on the game board as you could miss a turn. The questions for 5 Second Rule have been carefully written so that children as young as 8 can enjoy all the fun of this must-have family game.

Product Description

You'll have to think quickly to beat your friends and family at the 5 Second Rule game. It might sound easy to name three simple things, like three famous Micheals or three yellow foods. But it gets a lot harder when you only have five seconds to think of them! Be prepared to come out with some crazy nonsense as you scramble for the correct answers that will get you to the finishing square first. 5 second rule is a great family game for 3-6 players aged eight and up.

Going along with the others here.

What you get: A small folding board 25 x 25cm folded and 25 x 50cm open. 6 coloured marker pieces. 12 'Switch' cards. 12 'Pass' cards and two sets of double sided question cards. Plastic tubular stand up 5 second timer. Instructions.

The game: Simply move 12 spaces from start to finish. You move if you can simply call out 3 somethings in 5 seconds. Each player takes it in turn to be asked a question. If they succeed, the next player answers the next question. If you fail, the next player gets to try and steal your move by calling out 3 in 5, (although they can't use anything already mentioned). This is the UK version so yes, even Corrie is included i.e. Name 3 Corrie characters...

...What's that? You've done it already? Ah well, that may be, but when those mini ball bearings are shooting down the helter skelter tube and the pressure is on, even naming three things beginning with the letter 'R' can be tricky.

We played this for the first time on Christmas evening and were laughing as much at some very weird answers that came out as much as the inability of several family members to complete even the simplest question. Trust me, when you ask , 'Name 3 famous blonde female film stars and someone calls out Mahatma Ghandi, you know they've one, had too much sherry, or two, the pressure has got to them.

There are two danger zones where if you fail at any stage to answer 3 in 5 you miss the next go.

This is addictive, we even started just asking questions as a spot-quiz throughout the day. I can definitely also see this used in the summer as a BBQ or Beer Garden drinking game.

Yes it can be over within twenty minutes, but you simply call that round one and do a best of challenge.

Simple idea becomes a great family board game. Great for adults too when alcohol is added to the mix, making what can be a simple 3 answers in 5 seconds even more fun and laughter for all.

This provided a lot of giggles and frustration (if on the losing side!)over Christmas. It`s amazing how you know you can answer but can`t get it from your brain to your tongue in the 5 seconds it takes for the ball bearings to descend.The only "bad" thing I would say is the questions are not comparable in difficulty so some can be seen as advantageous because they`re easy, whilst others are much harder - need some sort of grading system perhaps, then you could choose a hard, medium or easy question.
Really good fun.

This is an amazingly simple yet fun game for all ages. Naming 3 things in 5 seconds is easy until it is your turn!We have enjoyed lots of very competitive games as a family.

I ordered this game because I've played it before with both adult friends and youger children-it is truly a fun game for all! However when the game arrived from amazon it was very badly damaged which was really disappointing as usually product are very good. There was nothing missing and because I'd bought specifically for an occasion I didn't send it back. Thoroughly recommend the game, it's very fast paced and due to the nature of being able to pass on a question it keeps everyone engaged!University Games 5 Second Rule the Game of Quick Thinking and Fast Talking

We played this several times over Xmas as a family with a 7 yr old and he in particular loved the game. Whilst some of the questions were a little difficult for him, you can give the younger children an extra swap card and 10 secs instead of 5 to think of answers. This made it fun for all and drove quite a lot of competition.

I have since played this with friends over drinks and it was great fun and really sparked some energy (and debates).
