What is the perfect party game? For me, the perfect party game is one where lots of people can play and where it’s very interactive. I love games that have teams (to add a nice competitive spirit) and also can get people talking, laughing, and having fun. The new and refreshed Scrabble Catch Phrase is just that kind of game.
Not Your Every Day Scrabble. Not Your Every Day Catch Phrase.
One of the great things about Scrabble Catch Phrase is that it requires you to think, but you don’t have to think too hard. The general idea is that you break into two teams. (Lots of people can play – check. Competitive spirit – check.) One team holds the game unit and starts the timer. A phrase will pop onto the screen and you have to get your teammates to guess the phrase without actually saying the words. For example, your phrase might be “Rain Delay” but you can’t say the words “Rain” or “Delay”, so you could say “What it’s called when a baseball game gets postponed because there’s water coming from the sky.” And before you try it, you aren’t allowed to say a word that rhymes with the word, give the first letter of the word, or say part of the word.
Once your team guesses the phrase, you pass the unit to the other team and they have to guess the next phrase. Teams pass the unit back and forth until time is up, at which time the team that isn’t holding the unit wins a point. The first team to 7 points wins.
This game can really rile people up. You can say or act or pantomime as much as you want as long as you don’t say the actual phrase (or break any of the other rules.) Your teammates can be shouting out guesses, quite probably while the other team is either laughing at the crazy fun everyone is having or whispering between each other because they think they know the phrase. If the time runs out on you, they have a chance to guess the phrase and get an extra point. It is engaging, animated, and very involved. (Very interactive – check.)
For hours of fun and “homemade” entertainment that is perfect for your next family game night or for your next house party, check out the new Scrabble Catch Phrase! You can find this exciting game at a store near you, or you can buy Scrabble Catch Phrase online from Amazon for just $19.99.
