Description Edit | History

Outburst is a game of lists. Two teams take turns trying to guess as many of the 10 answers to a topic on the cards. Bonus points can be earned by guessing a Target Answer determined by a die roll. The first team to 60 points wins! The game mechanism is very similar to the long time TV game show Family Feud, and itself seems to be the basis for the Canadian game show Talk About, which also spawned its own home game by Pressman.

An example would be a Topic Card of "10 Cars Rich People Drive." The team whose turn it was, would have to name the 10 cars on the Topic Card by the time the minute sand timer runs out.

The earlier versions of this game have a lot of dated topics. The 1995 version by Parker Brothers is more recent topically.

0 Rules Summary
A brief summary of the rules. Though printed rules try to be funny but I find them annoying. Everything you need to know is here. Note: the official rules call for designating someone as the Master of Ceremonies ("MC") which was too corny for me, so I changed the references to "Leader." Perhaps you like MC better? This can be printed back to back, trimmed, laminated, and tossed in the box.
