Product Description

Welcome to the world of Hilarium. Players draw cards with all kinds of wild action on them. Then everyone acts, yells, or just sings out what's on their cards--all at once! Every card has an exact match, so try to find the player who is acting out what's on your card. Find that match and you score! But don't get stuck with the Gotcha Card... that one will cost you. Hilarium is the wacky game that gets everyone to act out and match up.

This game is the best! Everyone has a great time and it is a fun way to really get know your family and friends. It gets everyone involved in the game and you really can't help but have fun! After a while, it's not about playing to win, it's just about being able to play and having fun at the same time.

Absolutely Hilarious!

When my LARGE family gets together we love to play games! This one had most of us crying with laughter. (The ones not crying with LAUGHTER were crying because they couldn't play!) And, well... one was crying because it hurt his ears. ;) We laugh so much every time we play the game! It is a GREAT party game!

Absolute Great Time!

This game brings even those shy, withdrawn people out of their shell. You don't feel stupid because everyone is making a fool out of themselves. You can have a great time with a few people or a large group of people. Imagine your friend lying on his back with his legs in the air pretending to give birth. Absolutely hilarious!

So much fun and maybe exercise?

I bought this game only because I found it for dirt cheap, but after playing it, I would have paid more. This game is fast paced and makes you be extremely creative! When my friend and I played we did not even keep score b/c we just wanted to longer and not stop to keep track of that. A few times I was playing with people that were so into it that we got really sweaty. The only negative is trying to get new people to try this game. Some people think they are too cool to play a game like this, but once you get them out of their shell.. Watch out!

It Should Be Called 'Insanium!'

I really love charades and charades-type games. [page scan/se=0982/sf=category/fi=stockin.asc/ml=20]Time's Up and 25 Words Or Less rank highly on my list of favorites. This game, though, is madness! With all players doing unbridled impersonations at once, you get what ultimately resembles a stereotypical loony bin (the kind you see in bad TV and Hollywood movies)! It's loud, it's chaotic, and it frightens cats (I speak from experience here)! Is it fun? Well, if you're into this sort of insanity, then probably--but as for me, I'd much rather play something else.
