#74: Taboo

Party games are a dime a dozen... good party/large group games are much more rare. Taboo, #74, is a great party game. One simple premise (get your team to guess a word without using 5 other words, specified by the card) is a hoot to play. The system also lends itself to easy updating... two new editions of Taboo were released this last year - and Electronic Taboo (about 3 years old) allows you to up the difficulty level to 7 words!

Peter Sarrett: "The best packaged party game that doesn't have my name onit. If there were a Taboo pro tour, I'd have quit my job long ago." (Peter is the developer/designer of Time's Up, another great party game.)

Am I uncool if I love this game? I mean, it's just so . . . mass market. I'm glad to see that we're not too stuffy to admit the merits of games known outside the halls of the illuminati (Taboo, Scrabble, Backgammon, Poker, Spades, etc.).
