Ways to Play our printable July 4th Forbidden Words game
a. Basic Taboo Rules
If you have never played this word guessing game, the traditional taboo game has players picking a card and trying to get team member to guess the word on their game card, without using the taboo (5 words) terms. If a player uses the main word or a taboo term then they are buzzed and earn a point for the other team.
b. One Word – One Guess
Another game you can play with these printable cards is One Word – One Guess game. (This is the reverse of the Taboo game.) This can work for smaller groups and 2-4 teams of 3-4 players. A team member grabs a card and is allowed to say 1 word from the list or a single word of their choice, then their team is allowed 1 chance to guess the Fourth of July word. If they get the answer correct on the first turn they get 3 points, after a second term is given 2 points and if they get to a third word they can earn 1 point. If they don’t get the word after 3 turns (word clues) then no points can be earned and the next team takes their turn. Play until each team player has gone one or two times.
c. Speed Forbidden Words
This game follows the basic taboo game premise, however each player is given 1 minute to get through as many July 4th Forbidden Words game cards as they can. This is fast paced game and the rules are as follows.
– Divide into 2 teams. Each player has one minute to get through as many July 4th game cards as possible. The Team must guess the card correctly before moving on to the next card, no skipping cards. So you can get 2, 3 or more points in a turn.
– If someone uses a Forbidden Word term or part to the main word, their turn is over.
– Each player gets one turn and once everyone has gone score the correct answers and the team with the most points wins.
You can always add more rounds to your game.
This is a fun fast paced game variation that we enjoy when playing Forbidden Words.
