How quickly can you describe a word without actually saying it?
Speed is of the essence in this fast-thinking, fast-talking game - the more words your team can guess from your descriptions in 30 seconds, the quicker you'll cross the finishing line. And that's without saying 'rhymes with' or 'sounds like'. As your team-mates shout out their guesses you struggle to Articulate a better description!
Articulate uses 6 categories of words, so you could end up describing anything from a kettle to a country depending on which category you've landed on... from Object, Nature, Action, World, Person or Random.
To spice things up further Articulate throws a "Spinner" in the works to encourage sabotage: land on an appropriate segment and spin the spinner to win bonus places, move yourself forward or indulge your vicious streak and drag the leaders back!
And if you thought that was mean, wait till one team lands on a Control Segment. Then it's a free-for-all of epic proportions that would drown out the Tower of Babel!
Categories include Person, World, Object, Action, Nature and Random. First team to make it around the board and successfully answer a spade category (chosen from any of the above) wins the game.
Articulate is the perfect game to suit any time, any setting and any group, even those which include stroppy teenagers and Granny!
When it comes to fast, frenzied fun and exhilarating entertainment, Articulatesimply has no rivals! When the shy start yelling, the cocky turn puce, and everyone's gripped with the giggles - you know Articulate is working its magic.
Think you're a good liar, think you can tell when someone else is? This is the game for you! Balderdash includes 5 different categories, words, people, initials, films and laws to add some variety to the popular game Balderdash.
Balderdash is a hilarious bluffing board game in which you try to con your opponents into believing your made up answers to a weird and wonderful collection of words, people, initials, films and laws.
Each turn a card entry is read out and every player writes down their own made up answer. The hilarity really starts when all these phoney answers are shuffled up with the real one and read aloud (keep a straight face so you don't give away which is yours). Everyone then tries to pick which is correct. Players whose phoney answers are picked score a move on the board.
You can be as wacky or serious as you want, absolutely anything goes - but one thing's for sure, the answer that sounds right probably isn't!

The abstract game of Qwirkle consists of 108 wooden blocks with six different shapes in six different colors. There is no board, players simply use an available flat surface.
Players begin the game with six blocks. The start player places blocks of a single matching attribute (color or shape but not both) on the table. Thereafter, a player adds blocks adjacent to at least one previously played block. The blocks must all be played in a line and match, without duplicates, either the color or shape of the previous block.
Players score one point for each block played plus all blocks adjacent. It is possible for a block to score in more than one direction. If a player completes a line containing all six shapes or colors, an additional six points are scored. The player then refills his hand to six blocks.
The game ends when the draw bag is depleted and one player plays all of his remaining blocks, earning a six point bonus. The player with the high score wins.
