Trapwords

Czech Games Edition Announces Trapwords
Czech Games Edition has announced a new party word-guessing game. "You have to successfully guess a word that one of your teammates is trying to describe to you. Sounds simple, but it is made fiendishly difficult by not knowing which words you can't say. Because both teams are simultaneously preparing secret traps for each other, words that you can't use. And further you get, the more trapwords you might expect."

Boom, Bang, Gold! (Major Fun): “The game feels complete and full of the most laughs and silliness when you throw all these elements together. By the end, you’ll have players waving and clapping and squeaking and Ooooing… sometimes when they’re supposed to and many times when they’re not.”

Villainous (Everything Board Games): “All that to say, Villainous is a good game, but if you go into into expecting great, you may be disappointed.”
