In Blurble, you need to think quickly — and obliquely — to grab more cards than any other player.
Anomia plays off the fact that our minds are positively brimming with all sorts of random information: things to eat, pop songs, websites, etc… Sure, under normal circumstances, it’s easy to give an example of a frozen food or a dog breed, but you’ll find that your brain works a little differently under pressure!
Game play in Dixit Odyssey matches that of Dixit: Each turn one player is the storyteller. This player secretly chooses one card in his hand, then gives a word or sentence to describe this card—but not too obviously. Each other player chooses a card in hand that matches this word/sentence and gives it to the storyteller. The storyteller then lays out the cards, and all other players vote on which card belongs to the storyteller. If no one or everyone guesses the storyteller’s card, the storyteller receives no points and all players receive two; otherwise the storyteller and the correct guesser(s) each receive three points. Players score one point for each vote their image receives. Players refill their hands, and the next player becomes the storyteller. When the deck runs out, the player with the most points wins.
Absolute Balderdash is the expanded second edition of Balderdash. Balderdash is based on bluffing your opponents into guessing your false definitions to obscure words. Absolute Balderdash adds several new categories to the mix: Movies (make up a plot), Dates (say what happened on it), People (say what the person did), and Initials (make up what they stand for). The real answers are often even more outrageous than the bluffs, so the game offers plenty of laughs.
Love Cards Against Humanity, but even with the official expansions do you find yourself playing the same cards over and over again? Enter Crabs Adjust Humidity: Volume Two, a crappy little third-party, unofficial, unauthorized expansion card set — featuring 80 white cards and 32 black cards — that blends seamlessly with the original game.
Our intrepid adventurers have sailed on a journey, finding the hidden cave of a mythic monster. There are so many strange things there! The Captain allows the crew to search through the place and bring back to him what they have found, but by bluffing the Captain, they will try to keep the best part of the loot for themselves…
