Manufacturer's Description

The Board Game of UNSPEAKABLE Fun!

Time is against you. You know what you want to say - if only you could find the words but some things in life are strictly Taboo.

How do you get your team to say SHOE when you can't say Foot, Sole, Laces, or Smell?

If your team guesses the word, you get the point and move forward one space closer to the finish. However, your opponents are always looking over your shoulder, watching your every move. Say a word that's on their hit list and you'll be censored.

That's TABOO. The game of Unspeakable fun!

One team member gives clues in order to get the others in their team to guess as many correct words as possible within the time limit, but beware - use a word from the list of "taboo" words as a clue and lose a point. Naturally the taboo words are the ones you would be most inclined to use (try explaining "Puss in Boots" without saying cat, feline, shoes, footwear, or fairy tale!). Hilarity ensues.
This game has all the essentials for a great party game - simple rules, a dash of tension, and lots of laughter. And best of all there is no limit to the number of people who can play! I have yet to meet a person who has played this game and not thoroughly enjoyed it. A must-have for any party game collection.

Taboo is such an exciting game. I find it incredibly educational too as you learn to substitute words..essentially, you become a walking thesaurus. Its a great after dinner game for entertainment when friends come round. Its also great when you go camping or even to take on holiday. Its a game you will remember long after you've played it and i guarantee, there will never be a dull moment the entire time. Watch out for the tension in friends and family alike!!! A game for all seasons!

Taboo is basically talking Pictionary. You split into teams, and in each round one member of the team has to describe as many words as possible to his team mates within the time period. But there are some words that are taboo - that you can't say, and these are of course the words that you really want to say. A member of the opposition checks over your shoulder to make sure you don't slip up.

What this leads to is a fast-moving and at times hilarious game for all the family. It is a game in which age and other things that make a real difference in some more traditional games (like Trivial Pursuit) count for nothing, as what really matters is quick thinking, using words to get round the houses to things.

Some examples from my recent games were: For 'Street', where you aren't allowed to say things like 'road', 'row', 'houses' one of my friends went for 'Kevin - plays for Crewe Alexandra', which, to our astonishment, his team mate guessed. For 'Watch', where you can't say 'time', 'clock', 'pocket', the immortal line 'You use it to check your... uhh... Greenwich Meridian'.

This is a brilliant game which requires very little to play - you can vary the length, it almost fits in your pocket, and everyone will have fun!

I have used the older version of Taboo with upper level learners of English. It is nearly in shreds! So I ordered the new one. It has lots more bells and whistles - timer, beeper, a board, and place markers. But the most important features are that there are many more words, and the vocabulary has been updated. It is still the same grand game it has always been. By dividing the cards, it's possible to have more than one class playing the game at the same time.

I teach English as a foreign language to people in their late teens and early twenties, and periodically use "Taboo" in class. The students practise expressing themselves in English while having a great time.

I loved this, its funny, entertaining and you can use it more then once. i'm not sure if it would be to everyone's liking, but me and my family liked it, great to use at family events and even quiz nights at pubs etc,

basically a person has a card with a word and several other words describing the main word, they have to use the descriptive words without saying the actual word hense the title,. great fun. you can play in teams and everyone gets a turn.

I totally agree. This has to be one of the best party games ever.....BUT....the cards run out too quickly. We're very fond of loud party games like this one in our house and 200 odd cards just isn't enough for more than a few games. Sooo...does anyone know if we can get new cards from somewhere??

I bought this board game for my mother, as a Christmas present, because she want to learn English and I thought this would be the best way of practise after a lesson. What can be better to play with your friends or your daughter in the evening after dinner?
Well she was very happy and exited so we all played at Christmas day after lunch even my old Italian grandmother,and my little seven years old cousin.
