Taboo Buzzd Game

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve played the regular Taboo game. Family, friends, any gathering really. It’s one of those tried and true ones that we pull out when there’s a group together. Most people already know how it works and if they don’t, it’s easy to explain – especially if there’s wine involved!

I was really excited when I saw this. One of my favorite games – portable!

But… it didn’t live up to what I would have liked. Yes, it’s small and portable. Yes, it’s impressive that they were able to do it, but I’m not sure it works. The buzzer and button placement is awkward. It’s a little odd to reach over and hit the button on the top if you’re sitting next to someone. I really wish it had some sort of detachable buzzers on cords or something. This could easily be something to play “on the road” if it had a few changes.

It’s still the same game. There’s a limited number of turns because… well, it’s small. I don’t see a way to load more cards, which would be another great feature, have a side loadable cartridge or something, hey, they could even sell me “theme” packs for new words. I’d totally go for something a little risque for my girl’s night out and something Disney for the kids night in.

I dunno. I was overall a little disappointed. Does it work? Absolutely! Does it work well? Nah…

Recommended for diehard Taboo fans that absolutely MUST take it with them. Then again, if you’re going to be somewhere you can play a game without worrying about losing pieces, just bring the old tried and true version. You’ll be happier.

Description:
It’s the popular Taboo game, the laugh-out-loud game of forbidden words. The Taboo Buzz’d game is an electronic, hand-held party game that’s easy to play, auto scores for you, and it all comes in one handy unit. Get your team to guess as many words as you can while you race against the clock, but if you say a Taboo game word, the other team will hit the buzzer and your team loses a point.
