Sharpen your pencils -- and your intuition -- for this quick playing "think-in-sync" party game. Draw a category card and in 45 seconds, list as many related words that come to mind. When the timer runs out, roll the die -- if it lands on HIT, pick a word that you think everyone wrote; if it lands on MISS, pick one that only you wrote. Choose wisely and score big points. The player with the highest score wins. Hit or Miss -- the can't MISS game that will turn your next party into a HIT!
Hit or Miss incorporates many attributes that mark a fun party game: strong player interaction, opportunities to be creative, as well as a good combination of luck and skill. Strategy tip: This game rewards you both for being in tune with what your opponents are thinking as well as for creativity. Try to list an even number of common items as well as unique ones.
I originally bought this game as a gift for my 10 year old niece. We often get together for family game night, and I find when the games reference pop culture from the 70s and 80s that she doesn't understand, she can get really frustrated and quit. When I saw this game, I thought it would be a great solution to that problem and it has been! Its fun for all of the adults, but the concept is easy enough for her to keep up with.
We really enjoy it and have problems stopping once we start! I think we are about to go through the entire deck soon, so we've already started trying to brainstorm new categories.
Bottom line: This is a fun game for any age group, that gives you a chance to be creative, laugh (at and with each other), and have a really great time!
Hit or Miss (Gamewright Games, 2007 – Brian S. Spence and Garrett J. Donner) is a game that immediately reminded me of another popular game, What Were You Thinking?, but adds to that with a bit of reversal thinking. When I read the rules to the game, I wasn’t really expecting much out of it, as I felt that the concept was a bit too simple and perhaps derivative from other games. However, when I introduced it to folks in a party type setting, they demanded that we play it again immediately after the first game ended, as they enjoyed it that much. Hit or Miss suffers from a “gaming” factor, in which one person can deliberately ruin the game while staying within the letter of the law; but if you avoid those folks, you’ll find a fun little party game here – with some pretty good components!
Each player in the game (up to eight total) takes a pad of paper, a pencil, and one HIT/MISS card. A box of 252 category cards is placed on the table, near a die and a 45 second timer. One player is chosen to be the first “Leader” for the first round, and then a number of rounds are played equal to the number of players.
In each round, the “Leader” draws a card and reads the category on the card out loud (“Ice Cream Flavors”, etc.) The timer is started, and players all write down on their sheets as many items as they can think of from that category. When time runs out, everyone stops writing, and the Leader takes the die. Starting with this person, each player rolls the die.
I enjoyed Hit or Miss, although on a personal level I found the game merely “good”, not great. However, all those I played it with had a terrific time, and it was voted “best game of the night”, even when put up against other, more strategic games. So I think that if you are looking for a fun party game that can handle up to eight people, you won’t go wrong with this one. The concept is simple; and as long as you keep the “win-at-all-costs” people out, you’ll have a tremendous time.
