The Taboo board game is a fun board game designed to be used a parties and is a lot of fun if there is a large group of you. The aim of the game is for the one person to try and get the other people in the game to guess the word written on a card they’ve selected, but the fun part comes because you’re not allowed to use that word or any of the additional 5 words listed on the card. It’s actually quite difficult when you think about it.
Ideally there should be at least 4 people playing this game at any one time to make it fully worthwhile. You can involved the whole family, even the kids as there are many junior versions of the Taboo board game available to buy. Most of the editions include at least 100 game cards so the game will go for some time. At one point in the past Hasbro did offer additional word cards as an expansion to the board game but these have since been discontinued.
