5 Second Rule: Just Spit it Out!

Trivia board games often favor people who have a deep and encyclopedic knowledge of a bunch of different categories. With 5 Second Rule, however, the playing field gets leveled by forcing everyone to think on their feet. Sure, you’re a major film buff, but can you name three movie directors in only 5 seconds? With wacky categories and fast-paced gameplay, 5 Second Rule is the perfect party game to break the ice and loosen everyone up.

5 Seconds on the Clock

5 Second Rule has an incredibly simple premise. As its name suggests, this board game gives you 5 seconds on the clock to name three types of “something” based on the category of the card you draw. Each round, the reader will read a card to the next player in the hot seat, telling them to “Name 3 _____”. Players who guess all three correctly will win the card, which counts as one point.

These categories can be anything from picnic foods and shoe brands to more complicated guesses like Big Ten colleges or movie directors. The board game comes with a box of 288 double-sided cards, giving you a whopping 576 different categories to choose from. 

It also comes with a giant timer full of metal balls, which is incredibly fun to use. One highlight of the game comes from whoever gets to flip the timer, watching the metal balls spin around until they hit the bottom with a loud clang.

Part of the fun of 5 Second Rule is the random stuff that comes out of your mouth as you try and quickly spit out three dog breeds in only 5 seconds. There’s no penalty for wrong guesses as long as you correctly guess all three by the end of your time, so just say whatever comes to mind! You’ll be sure to crack up laughing at all of the hilarious knee-jerk associations your friends and family come up with off the top of their heads.

Going Round the Circle

5 Second Rule puts a fun spin on the basic mechanics of the game that keeps everyone on their toes. If the player who is guessing that round guesses all three correctly, they win a point and the game moves to the next person with a new card. However, if they guess wrong, then the timer immediately gets flipped, forcing the next player in line to guess in the same category.

The tricky part comes from the fact that the next player isn’t allowed to use any of the answers given by the last player. If the next player can’t guess it either, then it moves down the line again until someone can eventually name all three. If no one correctly guesses all three, then the original player gets to keep the card and win a point.

5 Second Rule Spinoffs

5 Second Rule is a pretty fast-paced game, although its mechanics are relatively simple. Players who are looking for something a little more complex will love 5 Second Rule: Spintensity, the spinoff game that adds a spinner to the mix to give you three choices for what to do after you guess correctly.

There’s also a version of 5 Second Rule that’s fit for younger players called 5 Second Rule Jr. This version simplifies the categories, giving you easy guesses like ice cream flavors. In the opposite direction, the spinoff 5 Second Rule: Uncensored gives you all sorts of naughty categories that are fit only for players 18 and up.

Better Think Quick with 5 Second Rule

5 Second Rule is playable by 3 or more players, as there is truly no limit to the number of people who can play a game. This makes it the perfect flexible party game for almost any occasion. It’s suitable for ages 10 and up, although you can easily get the family-friendly spinoff if you’d like to include younger players.

The playing time for 5 Second Rule is around 30 minutes, but you can truly play on for as long or as short as you like. Buy 5 Second Rule today and enjoy the crazy things that’ll fly out of the mouths of your loved ones!

 

One Night Ultimate: Werewolves, Vampires, And Aliens

While most card games involve hours of play time and dozens of cards to manage, One Night Ultimate gives you a fast-paced game you can play in only 10 minutes. Pick your card and take on a secret role to figure out who your friends are and who you’ll need to eliminate in order to win the game. Whether you go for the Werewolves, the Vampires, or the Aliens, One Night Ultimate is sure to have you pulling out the cards at every gathering to liven things up.

Werewolves

Each of the One Night Ultimate games can either be played on its own or added to each other for a fast-paced game of fun. One Night Ultimate Werewolf is the first game in the series, providing you with a ten-minute game full of horror and paranoia. In One Night Ultimate Werewolf, you take the classic tale of a wolf haunting the villagers and you set it all in one terrifying night. Each player gets their own unique role at the beginning of the game, which will then have major consequences once you reach the night phase.

Whether you’re the Troublemaker, the Seer, or one of the evil Werewolves, you’ll find that horrific things have happened in the middle of the night that the whole village is going to have to reckon with. You may even find that, although you started out an evil Werewolf, overnight you became one of the innocent villagers! When everyone wakes you in the morning, each player is tasked with figuring out who they are and who the Werewolves are so that they can stop them before they kill again.\

The twist of the game comes from the switching of the roles that leaves you unsure of where your loyalties lie. Unlike most role-playing games where you’re fully aware of which team you’re one, One Night Ultimate Werewolf keeps you guessing at all times.

Vampires And Aliens

One Night Ultimate Vampire is the next edition of the One Night Ultimate Games, which introduces a brand new “Mark” system. While players begin with a plain mark at the beginning of the game, you may wake up to find you’ve become bitten and are forced to endure immortality as a Vampire. One Night Ultimate Vampire raises the stakes of One Night Ultimate Werewolf by adding deeper levels of deduction and complexity.

One Night Ultimate Alien is the next game in the One Night Ultimate lineup that is very similar to One Night Ultimate Vampire. This game features less role switching but introduces two bungling aliens who have to fight to be the last one left surviving. Figuring out everyone’s motivation for why they want certain people dead can help you piece together the clues to their identities and win the game.

Werewolf Daybreak Expansion

While One Night Ultimate Werewolf can be combined with either the Vampire or the Alien edition, there’s a special expansion called One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak that takes the original Werewolf game and allows you to play up to 10 players. There are no more basic villagers—each of the 11 new roles has a secret hidden ability that can make this fast-paced game even more of a wild ride!

Take Your Pick Of Monster With One Night Ultimate

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is playable by 3-7 players, although some of the other editions and expansions allow you to fit up to 10 players. This game is absolutely perfect for parties of all sizes, and you don’t have to worry about choosing a moderator or having anyone get eliminated. With a playing time of 10 minutes, you can easily fit a game in before dinner or drinks as a fun icebreaker.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is also suitable for ages 8 and up, so younger kids can join in on the fun without getting confused by complex rules or adult themes. Still, One Night Ultimate games are all fun and interesting enough that adults will be able to enjoy the deeper strategy of the game. One Night Ultimate is the perfect game for anyone who loves monsters and using their skills of deduction.
