Game Night for Adults – Hasbro’s NEW Taboo {Giveaway-CLOSED}

February 16, 2012 3 Comments »

DaddyB and I have recently decided that we need to bring back Adult Game Night, you know, where adult friends come over and you have a game night while the kiddos are tucked safely in bed? Yeah, that. We used to have lots of game nights with our friends when we were dating, and after we were married, but now that we have the girls it’s hard for us to get out of the house as much. We’re totally down for hosting though!!

Taboo-PKGBecause we love our classic games and we know most people already know the rules we stick to those we are comfortable with, {and occasionally add in a new one.} This time we decided to try out Hasbro’s word game, Taboo. Hasbro sent us the new, and improved Taboo to check out and play and here are some of our thoughts:

  • We loved that there are new words, it spices up the game a little and allows for more creativity.
  • The new game changing die is pretty cool and adds a new element to Taboo by making it even more challenging to get your teammates to say the word.
  • Same fun opportunities to be silly and have a good time
  • Needs 2 AA batteries that are not included (I personally love when games add this for you)
  • You need at least 4 players to have teams (however for game night we often have many more)

We love the new take on this classic game and had a great time with friends. At $26.99 MRSP it’s a pretty decent price for a game that will last for years of play, definitely a great housewarming gift for friends or birthday present for the game lover.

Hasbro is giving one lucky MommyB Knows Best reader their own new Taboo game!

    Taboo is one of the few games I don’t own! If I was to get this I might have to get Barrel of Monkeys for my kids or retro adult fun.
