An amazing board game made by none other than Hasbro:
Time is against you. You know what you'd like to say if you could only find the words. But some thins in life are strictly ... TABOO.
Example: How do you get your team to say the word BIRTHDAY ... if you can't say the words HAPPY, ANNIVERSARY, CANDLES, PRESENT or CAKE?
You might say: "Friends and family sing to you once each year," or "You celebrate this event by blowing out a fire on top of a frosted dessert." Or you might hum the well-known tune until your team shouts, "Birthday!"
Each time your team shouts out the secret word, you get a point. But be careful! Your opponents will be looking over your shoulder, making sure you don't say of the TABOO words. Because if you do and they catch you, they sound the buzzed and score the point!
TABOO ...it's unspeakable fun.
Holly: *thinks to herself* - the word is "Sarah Palin", but I cannot use the words "bitch," "dumb ass," "ugly whore." or "Dumb Republican"...
Holly's Team: C'mon, Holly! Give us some hints!
Holly: A dumb ass, bitch who is very ugly, resides in Alaska, and just quit being the governor. Now, she's out to become president.
Team B: Taboo! You used almost all the words they told you not to use.
Holly: This game is stupid! How else can you explain Sarah Palin?
Team B: It's the rules. Point for us!
Team A: Holly!!!!
