Gift Idea - Fame Us Board Game

If you love pop culture, I have the perfect game for you.

Gift Idea - Fame Us Board Game by Asmodee Games

About -  This exciting guessing game taps into today’s popular tween culture to put the most knowledgeable celebrity fanatics to the test.

At the beginning of the game all of the players are secretly split up into two teams -  "The VIP Table" or "The King on the Dance Floor".

Then all of the players are dealt 6 cards, with the cards bearing descriptive words or phrases like tall,  blonde, actor, non-American, popular with your parents, etc. During your turn you can either
  • Play one of their descriptive cards to the center of the table.
  • Pass and draw a card.
  • Challenge the previous player - who played a card - to name someone who fits all of the card descriptions that are in the middle of the table.
If this player names someone - can be real or fictional - everyone votes (except the challenger) on whether or not the person fits the description.  If the majority agrees that the person fits, the challenger draws two card.  If the player can't name someone acceptable, that player has to draw three cards.

You have to be careful with this though.  The game ends after ten rounds or after one player runs out of cards.  And the team with the least amount of cards wins.  The trick is, no one knows who is on their team.  So if you challenge someone you could be hurting your team.

To Buy - Fame Us retails for just $19.99.  It's recommended for kids ages 10 and up, but is geared towards the teen.tween market.

I received a product to review from the above company or their PR Agency. Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own - I was not influenced in any way. I received no monetary compensation for this post.
