Imagination, perception, and wording are all you need to win this game. Imagination is needed in the game because you need to decide what words you are going to use to describe a card which will be used. Just like the metaphor “a picture is worth a thousand words,” it means every description is based on the player’s perception.
First, the active player placed their card face down and describes it. Then, all players beside the active player also place their card that close to the active player’s description. After that, the active player will collect all cards that have been placed and shuffle it. After being shuffled, the active player place and show all of the cards on the table. Next, all players should guess the active player’s card, and then it will be scored based on the scoring rules. The game ends if the deck is empty or a player scores 30 points. If the game ends when the deck is empty game ends when the deck empty, the player with the most point wins the game.
If nobody or every player finds the correct card, the active player get no score and every other players scores 2. If the active player and any other player found the correct card, they score 3 and the players score 1 point for every vote of their own card.
When we first try this game, we were amazed at how easy it is to understand the rule. Like any Euro-style game, the rule is simple, straightforward, and people can understand the rule in less than 20 minutes. Luckily, the simplicity of the rule doesn’t make the game dull or boring. Instead, we were having fun the entire time, trying to predict others card, while preparing strategy for us to put the right card next turn. However, after we play the game for some times, we started to remember the 84 cards available in the game, so the game is not as fun as people who first time seeing the colorful and epic illustrations. Also, one of the common problems when playing with board games is sometimes it is hard to find friends to play with.
Overall, this game is very suitable for casual gamers or newcomer in board game world, since it is one of the games that have the common formula that all casual games have in common: simple rules, only take 15-30 minutes to play, and fun to play with friends. You don’t need to have many experiences in gaming or become a hardcore gaming, to enjoy this game.
