Taboo

Taboo


Simple app for playing social game of Taboo.
Gather your friends and enjoy.
This is standard version containing only 150 card for each language pack.

RULES
An even number of players from four to ten sit alternating around in a circle. Players take turns as the "giver," who attempts to prompt his or her teammates to guess as many keywords as possible in the allotted time. However, each card also has "taboo" (forbidden) words listed which may not be spoken. Should the giver say one, a "censor" on the opposing team hits the buzzer and the giver must move on to the next word. For example, the giver might have to get his or her team to say "baseball" without saying "sport," "game," "pastime," "hitter," "pitcher," or "baseball" itself. The giver may not say a part of a "taboo" word; for example, using "base" in "baseball" is taboo. The giver may only use speech to prompt his or her teammates; gestures, sounds (e.g. barking), or drawings are not allowed. Singing is permitted, provided the singer is singing words rather than humming or whistling a tune. The giver's hints may not rhyme with a taboo word, or be an abbreviation of a taboo word.

Almost, but not quite... The interface for this app is awesome! It is very easy to keep track of scores and to adjust scores after the round is over. On a negative note, the words in this app REPEAT way TOO OFTEN. To make matters worse, there is no way to keep track or set which words were used, so that they do not repeat as often. After playing two games in a row, over 75% of the words had already been used in the previous game. If they ever correct this issue this will definitely be the best version of Taboo as an app.
