In Concept, your goal is to guess words through the association of icons. A team of two players – neighbors at the table – choose a word or phrase that the other players need to guess. Acting together, this team places pieces judiciously on the available icons on the game board.
To get others to guess "milk", for example, the team might place the question mark icon (which signifies the main concept) on the liquid icon, then cubes of this color on the icons for "food/drink" and "white". For a more complicated concept, such as "Leonardo DiCaprio", the team can use the main concept and its matching cubes to clue players into the hidden phrase being an actor or director, while then using sub-concept icons and their matching cubes to gives clues to particular movies in which DiCaprio starred, such as Titanic or Inception.
The first player to discover the word or phrase receives 2 victory points, the team receives points as well, and the player who ends up with the most points wins.

Yes, this is a party game, but hold your judgement for a second. There is technically a scoring system and some rules, but we've found that playing this game for the simple fun of playing this game is so much better than having winners and losers. We just love to laugh, have fun, and enjoy being together.
The 'concept' of the game is pretty simple. There are a bunch of pictures on the board that can represent different ideas. There is a phrase or word that you need to get the rest of the group to guess and you do it by placing markers on the pictures. There is a main concept marker (green) that you put down and you start placing down the green cubes to help build the idea of that main concept. You then have other sub-concept markers (red, black, blue, yellow) that you can put down and build upon in order to help the others guess what is on your card. No really, it's not that difficult, but it IS fun! There are two decks of cards with 9 "Concepts" each, so plenty to keep you going for awhile. There are 3 varying degrees of difficulty and some of them are pretty danged difficult.
One twist that we do is that we've added a 10 sided dice that we roll to determine which Concept on the card is done. If you roll a 10, you get to decide.
If you like deep strategy, long and involved games, and destroying your opponent, this may not be your game. However, if you love to laugh, have fun with friends, and be challenged a bit, this is very worth the investment.
