BuzzwordsBuzzwords turns the art of description into a fun and hilarious party game. You're trying to get your teammates to guess a specific word. The tough part involves the words you're NOT allowed to use. Each word comes with five "buzzwords" that happen to be the most common clues related to that word. Naturally, you're not permitted to say any of the buzzwords.

For example, for the word "bankruptcy", you can't say the words "debt", "money", "loan," "file", or "broke" to your teammates. Now just try to describe the concept of bankruptcy without these obvious clues.

If you do use any of those forbidden words, you get buzzed and you lose the turn. You'll soon discover it's an absolutely mind-blowing, frustrating, and uproarious challenge to get your teammates to guess your word without those five common clues.

If you simply can't describe the word successfully to your teammates, tap on Skip to go to the next word. But you better hurry up! You have a limited amount of time to get your teammates to guess the correct word.

Customize Your Game

The team that successfully guesses the most words by the final round wins. Play with up to four teams, and set the number of turns each team will take (2, 4, 6, or 8 turns). You can also customize the length of time per turn (30, 60, or 90 seconds), and play with or without the Skip button.

Buzzwords comes with 1,000 word cards, and the option to use Gesture to mark cards during a turn. Choose team colors and create custom team names, and review and modify cards after each turn if needed. For added quiz show realism, install Buzzwords on a second smartphone so you can buzz your opponents if they say a buzzword.

Party Time

If you enjoy party word games such as Taboo, Charades, and Pictionary, Buzzwords should be invited to your next get-together. Match your verbal and vocabulary wits with your friends, and get buzzing.
