Blurt! (or Bible Blurt!) No need to write 2 separate reviews for the exact same game. Yes, Bible Blurt is no different than regular Blurt, other than the fact that all the words are mentioned somewhere in the Bible.
Blurt is a simple game to play and teach. All you do is listen to the definition of a word and be the first to blurt out the word being defined. As you move around the board there are also opportunities for challenges where you can catch up a lot of ground on your opponents.
I've come to find that the Blurt games work best with teams. This helps those with slow reflexes so that their teammates can keep them in the game. There is nothing more frustrating than when you are the slowest at the table and end up 30 spaces behind everyone else.
There are 3 difficulties I have with (Bible) Blurt:
- Some of the definitions are so easy that it sounds like everyone shouts the answer at the same time. This can cause disagreements because often the loudest person gets the points just because the reader could hear them best. The rules don't clearly define how to break a tie. (We usually do another card to break the tie.)
- Some of the definitions are too hard. The rules don't give a timeframe for how long you go on guessing, or what to do if no one ever gets the right answer. (We usually let the reader take the points since no one could answer.)
- Bible Blurt contains a large quantity of words that are in your every day vocabulary. It seems like without the scripture reference on the card you could use the card in regular Blurt. OK, this is not that big a deal, but having Bible in the name makes people naturally try to come up with "biblical" words.
I would recommend Blurt and Bible Blurt for an easy party game. Most people enjoy it, and it's so short you'll have plenty of time to play some other games.
