Decide on the number of teams first (we did 2, even though there were 8 of us, because it would have taken all night otherwise). Each team gets 60 seconds separately and time deducts each round until you run out. So for example if I was on my own team, I'd have 60 sec. to come up with the first word. I hit stop once I say the word, and pass it to the next person. That person has 60 sec. to come up with their first word. They hit stop and pass it back to me. I now have 57 sec. to come up with the next word, since it took me 3 sec. to come up with the first word. The second person has 58 sec. because it took them 2 sec. to come up with their first word. And so it goes, back and forth, subtracting time for each separate team based on how long it took them to come up with a word on their turn. You can play with up to 8 players.
We did this in 2 teams of 4, because otherwise it's too long (in our opinion). So I had the first word, then team 2 went, then someone on my team went, then another person on team 2, etc.
I like the individual times per team.
I like the large number of teams you can have if you so choose (and if you do it the way we did, the number of people who are able to play is endless).
I really like the concept: here's a category and here's letter: come up with a word that fits the category and starts with the given letter (ex: movie star, letter L).
I like that you can hit "new category" or "new letter" if you are stuck, but it subtracts 3 seconds from your time. This gives you a chance if you're stuck so you don't completely run out of time on one impossible word, but keeps people from skipping to something easy.
It's just too easy. 90% of the time, we took 1 (yes, 1) to 4 seconds to come up with a word (actually, less than 1 second often, because we'd come up with a word before the time even started counting down; this messed us up in the beginning, because we'd hit stop but the time would keep going because we hit it before the time started counting down and we didn't realize it at first).
However, since it's random, you can get an impossible combination (ex: a horned animal, letter J). (Maybe one exists, but if so, it's way too obscure for this game.)
Also, TOO SLOW between players. Between every single player, it says which player is up, but not just "player 2": more like, "Player 2, you're next!" in slow, dramatic fashion. Plus it tells you how much time you have left (which is good, but speed it up!). It was driving us all crazy.
This is a much better game for younger kids (I played with my 6th graders and it was harder for them, but mostly not too hard).
I'm going to keep it to play with my class, because it's good for that age, but don't think I'll be playing it with adults again any time soon.
