In this fast-paced game, do whatever it takes to get your team to guess the word or phrase. Give them clues -- talk, use your hands, jump around. Once they guess, pass it quick. You don't want to be caught with the game at the buzz.
Once you and your friends pick up Catch Phrase, you won't want to put it down.
It's hot! It's hysterical!
I've probably played more party games than any other kind and Catch Phrase is always a hit with any group. I've played Catch Phrase with co-workers, immediate family, in-laws, neighbors and strangers. Everybody likes this game. Why? Because it is so simple and yet makes for a lot of excitement.
All you do is get somebody to say a word or phrase without saying the word or phrase or using "rhymes with" as a clue. It's like hot potato where the counter is beeping faster and faster as it nears the end... then BUZZZZZ!!! If you team is NOT caught with the machine when it buzzes then you win.
I've played the old version with paper discs and the new version which is a fully contained electronic device. They both work great, but I do look the electronic device since you don't have to deal with the paper discs. The first version of the electronic device was a bit slow to bring up the next word, but the next version works great. If you want a simple game for a party, this is the one you want!
This is a blockbuster game, it starts out slow but as the disk keeps beeping faster (to the time out), and faster the player starts to get frazzled, the volumn of speech escalates, everyone screaming and ... BUZZZZZ the other team gets the point. It has several categories, but we found that the "everything" was the most fun. You can gesture, talk, make movements, etc. whatever will get the answer from your team mates except for using any part of the actual word or phrase. Terrific fun.
