absolute riot, Articulate! Is a hilariously raucous team
game for 4 to 20+ players. How quickly can you define
a word without actually saying it? Speed is of the essence
in this fast-thinking, fast-talking game - the more words
your team can guess from your descriptions before the
timer runs out, the quicker you’ll cross the finishing
line. And that’s without saying ‘rhymes with’
or ‘sounds like’.
Everyone gets to have a say – DESCRIBERS and
GUESSERS – as players frantically try to put over
words as diverse as “limousine”, “accruing”
… and then “a tulip”, in just 30 seconds.
Besides talking, you can gesticulate or mime –
if you feel that will help! Things get frantic, but
suddenly, your time is up – and another fast talker
takes centre stage.
Just to spice things up, there’s ample opportunity
to sabotage your opponents when the spinner comes into
play. Indulge your vicious streak by moving them backwards,
or your own piece forwards. And if you thought that
was mean, wait till one team lands on a Control Segment.
Then it’s a free-for-all of epic proportions that
would drown out the Tower of Babel!
