If someone on your team guesses one of the Taboo words, is the clues-giver then allowed to use that word when giving clues?

If the guess word is Thomas Edison and a taboo word is lightbulb, can I say lightning?

If the word is Kentucky, is Kentucky derby a acceptable answer

We need clarification. If the word is "byte" and the answer from the partner is bite (derived from "what do dogs do?) does the answer count as accurate?

Thanks for the link to the Taboo game rules. I was wanting to learn how to play the right way since my family likes to stretch the rules a bit and make up their own.

We were playing the game the other night and were told we can't use the fill in the blank approach. For example, if the word is STAR, we can't say: twinkle twinkle little (blank). Is that right?

We bought a used game at a resell store and the timer is broken. How much time does the team get? Thanks!

The need to police the opposing side during their turn for "taboos" makes it a bit tedious. It means you don't get a break (IE, even when it's the opposing side's turn) and always have to be on.
