If there's one thing you'd love to change in your house, what would it be? Is it the bear skin rug that has been in the family for years? Or the headless statue that the dog uses as a chewing stick?
Each team secretly writes down their answer and later reveals what they said. If your answers match, both teams get a chance to move ahead. If they don't match -- better luck next time!
Each time your answers match, roll the dice to see how much of your budget you've spent. You may even get to spin the spinner and see if any of the designers can help you get ahead. But watch out -- they could set you back. The first team to use up their $1000 budget wins!
I have seen 2 different types of games since I have become a gamer. The primary is where all players (or teams) compete to find one winner. The less common are games like Hoopla or Lord of the Rings where all players collaborate to beat the game. This game takes the pathetic middle road and claims to be one of the competitive games, but plays almost like one of the collaborative games.
I must admit we were suckered into purchasing this game because we were huge fans of the television show. But honestly, we thought it was going to be a real game. Besides the extremely cheap pieces of paper that they make you assemble prior to playing, there is one terrible flaw to the rules that has insured that we will never play this game again.
In each round one team must guess how the other team will answer a question. If the guessing team matches the other teams answer...BOTH TEAMS GET TO ROLL. The die determines how much of your budget you will use. The first team to use up your one thousand dollar budget wins. The winning is totally random thanks to the die, and either both teams roll or neither team rolls. Although some of the questions are thought-provoking most of them are ridiculously simple to predict if you know even a little about the show and your opponents.
Everyone...get any other game! Avoid this one!! Check out Funagain's "Shoppers Guide" for tons of great suggestions, just don't buy this game!!!
