Great game for bright wordy people

4

I have not played the game since we sent it to a 13 year old on the coast who is recovering from a broken bone. He loves it, especially when he beats his mom. Both are big readers with excellent vocabularies. It suits them well.

Mark My Words- you'll love it!

I'll just 'get down to brass tacks,' this game is 'the bomb!' You're really 'going to take a shine to it' if you enjoy word games. Ok, I'll stop...but 'but buy it -you'll, like it:)

Superlative!

I bought this game on a whim to take to a geek game night and had been talking it up for weeks. My fellow players were not disappointed. There was a come from behind whim, a lot of confusion and brain vapor lock, but we had so much fun that I can't wait to play it again.There are a few repeats on the cards, which means that it's a lot easier the second time around, and the rules are a little confusing for new contestants, but I recommend just jumping in.

A perfect housewarming gift!

I have a dear friend who loves idioms & cliches. She's basically fluent in cliches. When she moved into a new house with her husband, I knew just the perfect thing to send them. They loved Idiom Addict! Send one to your friend today. You won't regret it.

How To Play

Designed for at least four players to create teams of two, roll the die to see what challenges lie ahead. If ‘Synonym Twist’ is rolled, players from the opposing teams go head to head to guess common phrases from the provided clues, i.e Grimy Wealthy (Filthy Rich) or Matrimony Gown, (Wedding Dress). If a x1 or x2 is rolled, players choose a ‘Mixed Messages’ card and have only 30 seconds to guess the provided idioms. An example could be, “Use currency with belief that it is cultivated from woody plant foliage,” (Spend money as if it grows on trees.) The x1 or x2 indicates how many spaces you move your pawn for every idiom you guess correctly. The first team to the finish line wins!
