I remember back in the olden days when we used to go around to my friends house when they first bought their house and sat in the living room with a white plastic patio set being the only furniture and a couple of bottles of wine and we laughed ourselves stupid playing the original taboo game, where you have to get your partner to guess the word on your card without using any of the most obvious word which are written underneath. The new version retained this part of the game but added a few new challenges. My then 10 year old son asked for this last Christmas having played it in school and enjoyed it and I was well chuffed to get him a present I was quite ... Read the complete review

Just lately, with two small children at home, we haven't been getting out much (ahhh!) so have been doing much more entertaining at home. We often find, when having friends round for the evening, that it's good fun to finish up with a game, which is why we recently acquired The Big Taboo. THE GAME I've been aware of the game of Taboo for years and do remember playing it in the past.

The BIG Taqboo is a classic family game that has been pumped full of steriods to to form a massive, challenging, hilarious game for everyone to play. The first task is the traditional taboo game where you get a word that players need to guess and you have to describe it without using the buzz words on the card. An example would be to describe milk without using the words cow, butter, dairy, carton and way. The best feature of this game is the Bendy Bob character who is a purple little toy monster who you manipulate and people have to guess what the word your acting out is. Its like sharades but with a toy but its not easy with answers like acting someone who is ... Read the complete review
