GAME PLAY

Swig original game! All you need is the dice and cards from Taboo. There are no teams, players just switch off being the actor while everyone else guesses.

Roll the dice and then pick a card at random. Get the other player(s) to guess what’s on the card following the rule for each symbol (without saying any of the words on the card):
- Blue Sandglass x 2 = talk twice as fast and describe what’s on the card.
- Green people = describe what’s on the card using pop-culture references or quotes from movies/tv shows/books
- Purple mime that looks frightened = describe what’s on the card in a really scary voice while saying threatening things
- Orange hand over a mouth that’s adjacent to the purple mime = use standard charades to describe what’s on the card, no talking!
- Blue jumping jacks man = throw a ball back and forth with one hand. Describe what’s on the card using only sports metaphors.
- Orange hand over a mouth that’s adjacent to the green people = choose a classic character to be while describing what’s on the card (e.g. a pirate)
