wonderchris said...

Super fun!! Lots of laughs!

Megan Champion said...

I have never played it! All our games are for us to play with Ehan... we should check it out

Mary said...

It's a classic for sure - we haven't played it in years though. How come we only play board games during the holidays? I need to institute a game night I think. Very fun!

Libby said...

me too! and Catch Phrase and Scatergories...and Bananagrams too!

Melanie's Randomness said...

The best game, especially with a group of people and a few cocktails. I can never find anyone to play!!

alex said...

my brother has been sick recently, and we've reverted to our old childhood habit of playing hearts and poker, like when did in the summers as little kids. I read somewhere that every couple must have a game they both enjoy. taboo would be a great one.

Isabella Kiss said...

I am beast at this game. LOVE it!

Jennifer said...

This game never gets old, so good.

Alex said...

Definitely one of my favorite games!! It's addicting.

Melissa Blake said...

Good game. Right now, I'm obsessed with Bananagrams. Have you ever played it, Joanna?

Meredith said...

Greatest game ever! We always play it at the beginning of the year with our dorm to get the kids bonded :)

Deanna Pai said...

One of my favorites! My sister and I make the greatest team -- we can communicate just by looking at each other.

Jasmine Lee said...

Don't think i've ever played this game but it'd be a great addition to family games during the holidays!!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh me too! And I am super competitive which makes for a real intense evening. I bet game night is so fun at your house!

Anna said...

well shoot. I feel so behind on the times. Never played!

Amber said...

I just got this for my birthday and I LOVE it. Have you played Apples to Apples? It's another favorite, great for parties.

Ashleigh said...

Yessss!! My family & I have played this game through childhood and beyond. Some of the mispronunciations and goof-ups are still running jokes to this day, wonderful memories!

Laura Trevey said...

Love this game too, and played it last night by the fire!

Ooh, have you ever played Celebrity? My friends are I are obsessed. Everyone writes down the name of 3-5 celebrities (depending on the size of the group - bigger groups, fewer names) and puts them in a hat. You divide into teams and go back and forth trying to your team to guess as many celebs as they can in 30 seconds. That's the first round. In the second round the names go back in the hat and you start over, but you can only say two words to get people to guess (guys are really good at this one). In the third round, no words allowed, just charades. It's hilarious! And awesome when people say weird things in the first round, because they come up in the next rounds! (wikipedia maybe explains it better than me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebrity_%28game%29)

angie said...

me, too. and scattergories!

wynnsday said...

Taboo is the best! Balderdash is up there too.

I KNOW. We have tried so many other games and nothing comes close. Although in a pinch Articulate will work.

Gaby @ The Vault Files said...

We are loving it too, playing it every week ;) Also obsessed with Cranium, it's really fun. Every time we have a get together I'm anxiously awaiting for game time. Oh! and Rummikub, love Rummikub.

Brittany said...

Oh my gosh, if you love Taboo, then you need to try The Big Taboo... it's like Taboo only better! I'm a huge nerd and force my friends to come over for game nights once a month. (They secretly love me for it though.) Bendy Bob is a HUGE hit!

Tish said...

me tooooo!

annawithlove said...

I love this game, and also lately I've been addicted to inviting friends over to play Catch Phrase!

Megan said...

Me too! I love it :)

Mo Pie, Please said...

It is my favorite game!

Anna said...

Have you tried Celebrity Taboo? Not cure if they make a current version but we have the 1994 version and it's very fun!

ag. said...

ME TOO! My sister always makes us play it and she always loses...but she loves it anyway!

Katy L said...

Love that game. Also, love Balderdash. Definitely play it if you haven't. Best party game ever.

Janice said...

LOVE that game!! so much fun :)

The Iconic Blog.com said...

My fav!xx

Sera said...

haha, love that game!

Mocha Mornings said...

Ooh, I love board games!

Have you ever played True Colors? Each person is represented by a color. A question is asked and then each player votes for a person to win by placing a certain color card in a box. I recently played with my aunt, mom, grandma, sister, and boyfriend. One of the questions was "Who was the prettiest baby?" The color green - my mom - won. We began collecting the cards when my grandma said, "Please return my two green cards." She had voted for my mom and forgot about my aunt, her other daughter!

Needless to say, it got a little awkward! :) I recommend playing with a bottle of wine.

George said...

and how!!! I totes love that game!

Jgee said...

I LOVE that game as well. Good for the English/wordy geeky type. I tutor a boy in English once a week and we always play it. Great for improving vocabulary etc. Fun fun.

christie said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! I think I might invite some friends over tonight for a taboo-night! xx

Becky said...

This is my favorite game ever! I'm really competitive with it too!

Kirsten said...

OMG YES!!!! I always bust this one out when the fam comes over. Over Tgiving, we all played and had a blast. I should film it sometime...so funny!

nicole said...

Very fun game... but my version is *so* outdated. The answers will be "beeper", "World Wide Web", "Denzel Washington" or "Bruce Willis". I need to upgrade to a more recent edition! xo.

a whole lotta love said...

We used to play this all the time when I was growing up! Haven't played it in years though. Its so hilarious. Maybe we'll have to dig through the closets and bring it out for Christmas :)

Grace said...

I have never in my life played this game!

Katie said...

I'm the same way with catchphrase!!!
I'm bringing it to all my holiday parties this year :)

Stephanie said...

i'm in love with this game. i've had the same one since college (that's 17 years!) i like to whip my husband's behind (and whoever else's is unlucky enough to be his partner.) I think some of my friends cringe when they see me walking towards them with this box in hand.

studioto said...

really love, and love to read your posts give us inspirations

sumslay said...

This is my family's favorite game! Catchprase is fun too, but Taboo's a little harder. We have so many Taboo-gone-awry stories.

Apples to Apples is another favorite!

The Pantry Drawer said...

Tay Talk said...

My family and I have been playing this since FOREVER. I still love it to this day.

Funny story about it. One time we were moving and when we finally got all the boxes into the house we could her this horrible buzzing noise, coming from inside one of the 100 boxes. We later found it...it was the buzzer from Taboo.
BAHAHA!

How about the one like Charade but instead of drawing on papers, you draw on the little whiteboard man instead! Totally eco-friendly and cute!

LifestyleBohemia said...

I just played this game for the first time ever with a group on friends a few weeks ago. My husband saw how much I loved it and it's now under our Christmas tree!
Happy Friday!

Venassa said...

Ahh we were obsessed with that game in high school. It's so much fun.

Michelle Kendrick Hartney said...

LOVE that game

very married said...

admission: nothing makes my husband and i angrier at each other than being on the same team for Taboo. no joke.

Amanda said...

oh my goodness this is one of my all time favorite games! my family has been playing it together (and kicking our extended family's butts at it) for years! thanks for the smile today :)

nicole said...

Joanna - I'm *totally* upgrading now... I would love to watch my husband attempt to describe "Brangelina" to me... hehe! xoxo.

Alison said...

My dad ALWAYS pretends to shave with the buzzer. Always. It never fails.

etoilee8 said...

We get quite competitive about taboo in our house. Certain people aren't allowed to be on teams together because it's far too easy. Mostly my best friend and I. She's Swedish but her English language terminology is top notch.

Jennifer said...

LOVE Taboo! Almost as much as Risk :D

Glory said...

agreed (:
