Description Edit | History

Anomia: Party Edition adds 6 new decks to the Anomia card game family. Each deck is a word game in which players sequentially place a card face-up in front of them in a stack. As each card is revealed, players look for matching symbols between their card and any other card. If a match occurs, the two matching players face-off and must quickly give an example of something within the category (eg. breakfast food, lake, reptile) listed on the opposing player's card. The first person to finish saying a correct answer wins the face-off and takes the opponent's card into a face down "winnings" pile. Since cards are played on top of each other, the player who lost the face-off reveals an earlier card on their stack and may immediately match another player's card causing a cascade of face-offs.

In addition there are wildcards which allow different symbols to match until it is overwritten by another wildcard which may then trigger a whole new set of face-offs. Play continues until the deck is exhausted and whoever has the most cards in their "winnings pile" is the winner.

From the publisher:

ANOMIA PARTY EDITION

Feed your Anomia addiction!

Diehard Anomia fans and novices alike will love the Anomia Party Edition, featuring 6 all-new decks and over 425 unique categories, plus customizable blank cards for adding your own categories in every deck!

Play the Party Edition decks on their own or intermingle them with the original decks for hours of mad fun!

Anomia is simple. Players flip cards in turn until the symbols on two players’ cards match. Matching players must race to give an example of the category on their opponent’s card. Whoever blurts out a correct answer first wins their opponent’s card, and drawing continues.

Sounds easy, right? Think again! Wild cards create unexpected matches, and face-offs can cascade when you lose a card, revealing a new match. Pay attention - it could be your turn at any time!
