HOW TO PLAY
Create a game
Start a game and invite your friends. Or create an in-app chat group with your friends and start a game from your chat!
Taboo is a game for 2-6 online players, with video chat included. This means you can play face-to-face even when you can’t be together. You can also play with as many friends as you like, in person, with Local Party Mode.
Divide into two teams
Split into two teams and name your team.
A Clue-giver is assigned from Team A
A clue-giver from team A will be chosen by the app. In the next round, a Clue-giver from team B will take their turn.
The Clue-giver draws a card
Only the Clue-giver from Team A, and all of Team B, can see the card. The Clue-giver must try to tell their team what the word is, without saying any of the Taboo words.
Team B stand by the Buzzer
Team B will buzz if the Clue-giver says a Taboo word!
Watch the timer
Your team must guess as many words as possible before the time runs out. You’ll win 1 point per correct guess.
Passing on a card
You can skip 2 cards every turn. After that, the other team will get 1 point every time you skip a card.
Finishing the game
The game ends when every player has taken a turn as Clue-giver. Or when each team has had an equal number of turns as Clue-giver.
LOCAL PARTY MODE
If you’re all in the same place, you can play with as many friends as you like, using a single phone!
- Split into 2 teams
- Take it in turns to be the Clue-giver
- If you’re the Clue-giver, make sure your team can’t see the screen
- If you’re in the opposing team, sit or stand behind the Clue-giver and shout if they use a taboo word
- The Clue-giver must then press the buzzer
You can also play with one friend in two-Player Mode!
- Take it in turns to be the Clue-giver
- Buzz yourself if you use a taboo word
Become a word master and beat your opponent all by yourself.
Team-up and play with your friends, wherever you are!
