Scrabble Catch Phrase is designed just like the previous version - it's just that the words and categories have been changed enough so that if you were getting bored or your guests were memorizing all the previous stuff, they will be challenged once more. (I just wonder why the name contains the noun "Scrabble" as it has nothing to do with the board game of the same name and I think it's confusing. Hasbro still makes the game.) Choose from 5 categories: Fun & Games, Entertainment, Everyday Life, The World, and Variety and you give your teammates clues so they can guess the word or phrase on the game unit's screen. You can't use rhyming, first letters or parts of the word, or the other team gets a point. Once your team has guessed it, you pass the unit off to the other team as quickly as you can. When the buzzer goes off, whoever has the unit loses a point to the other side, so you have to hand off fast. Whatever team gets to 7 points first wins. The game is recommended for age 8 and up and that really does make sense once you see the words and phrases.
It does require batteries (3 AAA batteries) so make sure you buy those and keep extras on hand for your party. It is a great game for a crowd of at least 6 people as I think it wouldn't be as fun with fewer as you have two teams competing. The game is electronic and keeps score for you, the timer is built in - so that reduces any of those arguments! You can eat, drink and be merry while playing as there aren't any pieces to keep track of to distract you.
It's good for all ages, if you give some leeway to the younger members of the family. It gets us all talking and being very animated while attempting to get the others to guess the phrase. I wish there was a way to insert other categories to the set -
I guess we'll just have to purchase another one.
