Product Description

Product Description

“The game is a cross between ‘Give us a Clue’and a night with Rory Bremner…a riot” – Michael Parkinson. “Turns your friends into shining stars one minute, total cretins the next…hilarious fun” – Rory Bremner. Who's in the Bag is an incredibly popular game that test your skills at verbal charades. The object of the game is for each team, in turn to identify as many famous characters on the cards as possible in a race against the clock. Everything you need is in the bag including a timer and blanks to create your own special characters. If the team guess the identity of the character correctly they keep the card and draw another from the bag. You can act, sing, impersonate, mime or describe the personality –just don’t mention the name! If you do the go is forfeited and the bag passes to the next team. Once the bag is empty the team with the most cards wins. This game is for 4 or more players and suitable for ages 8 and up.

A brilliant game based on very simple principles. The game consists of a bag, a timer and oval shaped cards on which there are the names of three people - fiction and non-fiction. The basic aim of the game is to describe as many people on the cards which are picked out of the bag to your team without naming the actual person in a set time limit. The game is reliant on verbal dexterity and quick thinking and anyone can play it.

Sounds very basic but it fantastic fun and creates a great atmosphere in any party. It also sounds easy but it can be very difficult especially when you get stuck on an obscure person to describe. The instructions give a variety of ways to play the game but the best way to play is to get stuck in and play the basic game first as outlined in the first paragraph.

Highly recommended.

Who's in the bag is a great game to take if your going on holiday, on long drives or flights, or if you just fancy fun on a night in. The game isn't aimed at anyone particularly as all the names, characters, and places in the bag come from different genres and time periods.
This game makes the time fly and although it does have quite a long life it can become boring if you play it constantly round after round.

What FUN.... this small portable game is so simple to use but creates masses of mayhem and joy. How refreashing to have a simple concept that requires no batteries, wires or plugs and is as easy to carry round as an evening clutch bag!! This game comes to dinner parties, and on every holiday we take. It manages to fill the room with laughter whilst learning. Although this depends how much wine has been consumed. Why not pit the girls against the boy's to see who is the best and to see who will try to cheat. This never fails to bond even strangers into the fiercest team...
The only addition needed by the manufacturers is to create more cards...
Enjoy the battle!

With the prospect of Christmas looming many people will be dreading the thought of spending an excessive period of time through obligation with various family members. If this is you then Who's in the Bag can help.
It is like the name game bit and the end of the TV quiz show of 'They think it's all over' but without Rory McGrath and Nick Hancock. It is pitched at children and adults with a variety of different people so you may or may not know what this person does but it is fun to try and infer the name without saying it. It is less contraversial than Monopoly and causes less arguments than Scrabble and certainly makes the time fly, as well as allowing you and your loved ones some time to relax and have a laugh and forget what you had been stressing about all day.

We played this game many times over Christmas, with lots of laughs. We had a great time with it. Children under about 10 would struggle, even with the childrens choice. I would suggest getting an extra set of names, as once you've been through the bag once or twice, some of the names become familiar.

Yes the idea of this game is simple and yes there is not a lot in the box - but if you give it a chance you can have a lot of fun with this game. We always have lots of fun playing at dinner parties and have played with younger members, but just give them a bit more artistic license with how they convey the message (allowing them sounds like etc...) If you are not sure who any of the people are, then I can imagine it might be as much fun - but there are three to choose from on the card and it forces you to just be a bit more imaginative (I personally think the people on the cards are very accessible - lots of Hollywood actors etc..). It is very much geared towards the British market though with some of the names relating to politicians like Tony Blair (although I think you would have to have been living on the moon to not know who most of them are!) All in all - can be really great fun and is what it says on the tin.

I love games and have games nights with friends on occasion. This is a fabulous wee game. Very much like whose who although there are three names on one card. You describe the persons name or use facts so the team members can guess, you only do one name per card so the game lasts a lot longer. You can also buy additional name cards. Would recommend this to anyone, hours of fun.

Quality looks good but an average family will struggle to play this from general knowledge. Quite a few of the personality names are pretty obscure. Many people may recognise at least one name on each card but won't know them well enough to describe or do an impression.
