A sport originated in London in 2011 and rapidly spreading. Quarticulate combines the bloodlust, hand-eye coordination skills and intense nerdery of online first-person-shooter game QuakeLive, with the vocabulary-testing, rapid-fire, word-guessing board game Articulate.
Players take turns to score points: by either guessing the words on the cards being read by a teammate, or killing other players on the opposing team (by simultaneously playing Quake Live). The team then advances round the Quarticulate board based on the number of points scored.
