Buzz Word Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Buzz Word is a lively, challenging, fun family game! Buzz Word is for 4 or more players in teams ages 10 and up. The game comes with 200 cards containing 400 Buzzword clues, 10 scoring cards, Sand Timer, Scorebaord and a Marker. Let's say the Buzzword is "Air." You and your teammates have 30 seconds to solve 10 clues, and all the answers contain the word "air."


1 Overseas Postal Service...Airmail
2 Nike shoes named for a NBA great...Air Jordans
3 Illness in flight...Airsick
4 Tupperware makes this kind of seal...Airtight
5 Pretend you're Eddie Van Halen in concert...Air guitar
6 when you throw the basketball and miss the hoop...Air Ball
7 scented cardboard that dangles from a rearview mirror...Air Freshener
8 Kennedy, Heathrow, O'Hare, Dulles...Airports
9 Machine that can blow up your tires...Air compressor
10 Inflatable Bed...Air Mattress

If your team can't get an answer, they may pass, but cannot come back for it. The opportunity goes to the opposing team, when your team is done with their round, they get the chance to come in and take any passed clues and collect those points! Each correct answer earns one point--first team to 50 wins! This is a great game for family game nights, family get togethers, BBQs, the hoildays, very exciting lots of laughter! Definite thumbs UP!
