Wow, I remember when I liked games like Outburst. Then I played them a few times and realized that most of the time you win based on getting the right card for your knowledge. Then I played Scatagories, but I grew board of it quickly. Of those types of word games Boggle is about the only game I still play.

Haste Worte though, combines elements of all of those games, and adds a fantastic auctioning mechanism. You auction the points you plan to score, ala hearts. Of course those that predict a lower score get to go first and eliminate words they picked from your list. Fantastic fun.

Kramer has done it again.

UPDATE: I decided to upgrade this to a 10 because in my mind it is the perfect party game. Really it is probably an 8.5 compared to other games, but undoubtedly this is the best I've played in its catagory.

Wish there were an English version of this.

I cobbled together a homemade set (sort of) one night so we could try it. It's good.

Sehr gelungenes Spiel für Gruppen! Simple Regeln (jeder schreibt möglichst viele Begriffe zu einem vorgegebenen Thema auf), aber der Clou ist das einschätzen der eigenen Antworten. Man muss nämlich nach dem Notieren schätzen, wie viele Antworten man sich zutraut. Punkte gibt es nur für vorgelesene Worte, egal wie viele man zusätzlich noch auf seinen Zettel geschrieben hat. Der Spieler mit der niedrigsten gelegten Zahl beginnt mit dem Vorlesen, so dass derjenige, der um die meisten Punkte spielt zum Schluss dran ist. Fieserweise muss er alle Begriffe von seinem Zettel streichen, die seine Mitspieler vorlesen. Riskiert man also auf eine hohe Zahl zu setzen oder geht man lieber auf Nummer sicher und liest zuerst für weniger Punkte vor?

Really nice word finding game and the betting how many different words you will be able to reveal can be quite tense - if you bet too high you might not have enough different words left, if you bet too low the others will get a hugh lead on you. The handicap can really bring the leading player to a grinding stop, but that's what it is supposed to do I guess :-) It is quite interesting to see how differently or how similarly the players assosiate with the given term.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

I definitely enjoyed the game, and I can appreciate the strength of the underlying mechanism, but in practice it was a little too easy to achieve your bidding objective.

I don't know why no one has done an English language version, there has to be a better way than translating the German cards (which is what I've had to do).
