Essen 2014 – Concept
So it’s a Game, in a White Box, it’s frustrating but fun…
In concept you use images to give clues to a word or phrase you are trying to get players to guess.
For example, if you select the ‘Food and Drink’ icon and ‘Brown’ it narrows it down a bit.
Select ‘Liquid’ and now we know it’s a drink… Select ‘hot’… Coffee! yay!
It’s a lot more complex than that. Most of the clues are rally difficult and getting people to say sayings while giving abstract clues is pretty hard.
You can ask the clue giver yes or no questions. But asking too much gives clues to everyone else trying to guess.
We played this nearly every night at Essen and enjoyed it a lot, none of this though…!
