Anybody's Guess is an exciting, fast pasted trivia board game where both teams try to out guess the other. With over 400 cards (double sided) you'll have enough fun to last the whole night. Each team only has one minute to guess the keyword on the card they draw. Five windows on the viewing stand can be opened resulting in less points given with each clue. The sooner your team guesses your keyword, the more points you get! The opposing team can also guess how many guesses it will take to discover the word. Anybody's Guess really is a board game about anybody's guess.
Anybody's Guess Example
Each card consists of four clues with categories including actors, objects, traditional songs, grab bag, famous performer, tv sitcom and more. In this example, the category is "Substance."
- What you lick on a postage stamp (if guess, 10 points)
- Kookaburra sits in this kind of tree (if guess, 7 points)
- Tissue that holds the teeth (if guess, 5 points)
- Kept on the bedpost overnight (if guess, 3 points)
If keyword still has not been guessed within one minute, the answer window is then opened and the word is given.
Object of Anybody's Guess:
In Anybody's Guess, the rule of the game is to reach the end of the board before the opponent team. This is done by guessing your words as soon as possible (the most points) and predicting how many clues it will take your opponent to guess the word.
Contents of Anybody's Guess:
In this board game, you should have a card viewer, 400 double sided clue cards, a label sheet, two playing pieces, five prediction cards for each team, a starter card, one-minute timer, game rules or instructions, and the game board.
Two groups are made and the five prediction cards are given to each team. Both teams start in the beginning space (START) on the board. Place a stack of cards into the card viewer with the starter card on top. Make sure all doors are closed. The rule for who starts first is decided by adding up the age of all the players on each team and the "eldest" team takes their turn first.
With the cards loaded into the card viewer, the opposing teams looks at the clues and answers silently and makes a prediction on how many guesses it will take the other team to discover the word. They place their prediction card face down and the guessing team has one minute to guess the word.
If you are playing by the official Anybody's Guess rules, only one guess per window is allowed. Players on the team can discuss their answers mutually. A correct answer on the first clue is worth 10 points. The second clue is worth 7 points; the third clue is worth 5 points. The last and fourth clue is worth 3 points. No points are awarded if time runs out before the correct answer is given. If the opposing team plays the "Bet You Can't" card as their prediction and they predict correctly, 6 points are awarded.
Rules for moving your token on the Anybody's Guess game board are one spot per point earned. If token lands of special instruction place, instructions must be followed for the next turn.
