We we’re stuck in the rain and needed a fun last time while the storm made its way through. Everyone young and old had a blast. And unlike the classic card game, these words were easy for the youngsters. It’s a bonus option that you can expand your deck. It does come at a extra cost, but the topics will have everyone in tears trying to explain it or guess. Can’t wait to play this on our next family road trip.
We played about 4 games and then the words just started repeating. Seemed like they were even in the same order. All the words in the English language and this game only has about 50 of them. I added 2 additional packs, but I think the main pack should have a bigger variety of words.
Our game stopped in the middle of playing to tell us we had to pay. That’s ridiculous
for younger players in my family, i want the ability to add more time to their timer, but can’t. also, in the hard copy non-digital non-app version of Taboo, to disincentivize too much skipping, we like to deduct a point for every skip, but can’t do that in the app. i’ll update my rating to 5 stars once more game play options are added for “house rules” customization.
Can’t play video chat version, it’s not working
Very fun very smexy 😘
Doesn’t work at all?…
I love the original card game version of Taboo, but for convenience, my family and I played the app version of Taboo on Thanksgiving day. It was fun, but the programmers clearly did not implement a way for recently played cards to be remembered by the app. We played three separate games, and got multiple repeats of cards during those three games. Considering how that Taboo has a ridiculously large number of words to choose from, the fact that repeats showed up so quickly was extremely odd. Fix that, and the electronic version will be quite good. Still, worth the money spent.
I think the app is great but having the option to choose your deck before you play really narrows the field for guessing. There should be an update letting us mix the decks. Also, why limit the rounds to 20? We should play as many rounds as we see fit. Please fix these minor issues. Thanks.
