The box art for this game is terrible. Seriously, how can a disembodied face carry such a shit-eating grin? Why does it have a green jalapeno for a nose? Is it attempting to suppress some giggles because it just realized how superior it feels relative to everyone else in the room? What is going on there, my god.
What am I supposed to write about a ubiquitous Hasbro product? It's a basic word association game that I've somehow managed to avoid playing for my entire life. A card gives you a word, and you need to say other words that aren't that one (or one of the others listed beneath it) until your teammates can guess what you're talking about. There isn't much strategy to it, other than quickly tossing aside cards when you surmise that your team will be unable to easily guess what it is. It's kind of funny to play with people that take it super seriously (like I did), as the low-stakes banality of it contrasts nicely with people staring daggers at you to get you to shut up. Oh, and it's genuinely a lot of fun to hammer on the buzzer for no reason between rounds.
I do want to make a concerted effort to play more board games in general, however. I already enjoy playing video games quite a bit, and the laid-back, social aspect of getting together with a group of people to play something like this is great. Hopefully the next game I try won't have its box art haunted by that smug-ass ghost.
