Are you tired of the football commotion that has been brewing for the past couple of weeks? For even the most die hard gridiron gang the build-up can be a little exhausting. Why make this weekend just about football. Prior to the touchdowns and commercial banter, get family and friends together for a game night of Last Word.
Last Word is the fast paced party game by Buffalo Games. With over 1 million copies sold, this game has been generating laughter and quick thinking.
The rules of the game are simple. First a topic is determined. Topics can be simple like animal, food item, or sport. Second, the first letter of the word is said. For example, "G." Players go around the table shouting out answers. The player with the "last word" advances to the finish line. With a timer set a varying intervals, players never know when the buzzer will sound.
This game is great for players who think quickly on their feet. Also, you need to think of some strategy to make sure that you don't run out of answers. For example, you pull the subject card cereals and the letter "c". Of course, there are some obvious answers, Cheerios, Chex, etc. But there are a few players will through out Cookie Crisp, Cocca Puffs and who can't forget Captain Crunch.
Personally, when I play this game, I prefer my first few answers to be a little obscure. These answers tend to put players on the defensive. I could get a few laughs or possibly stump other players. By throwing my opponents off their game, I increase the possibility of being the last person to answer at the buzzer.
Last Word by Buffalo Games retails for approximately $24.99. It can be purchased on-line at Buffalo Games website or at various retailers.
