How do you play?
Players take it in turns to be the 'clue-giver'. The clue giver takes a pile of cards and must try to describe the 'guess word' at the top of the card without using the 5 'taboo' words underneath which they are not allowed to use.
How does it help to improve communication skills?
In the game you are only given a certain amount of time when it is your go. Players therefore need to say things in a concise and to the point manner and be able to express themselves clearly.
The game helps to build children's ability to describe things effectively.
