Forbidden is a team-based guessing game that you play IN REAL LIFE. So bust out some party snacks and get ready for an epic game night!

Taking turns, a player from each team will describe a word or phrase to their teammates, without saying any of the 5 closely related taboo words. The teammates must try to correctly guess the word being described using the vague / limited clues they are given. Have your team correctly guess as many words as they can before you run out of time. Once every player has had a turn, the team with the most correct guesses wins!

Anyone can play, no gaming experience required! The game makes use of simple tilt controls that anyone can learn in seconds. Simply tilt the phone towards you to indicate your team has guessed correctly, or tilt the phone away to pass to the next word / phrase.

The game contains 2,000+ cards to guess (and counting) plus a variety of categories, including:
- Kid Friendly / Easier Cards
- Food
- Movies
- Celebrities
- Brands
- Disney
- World History
- Travel Destinations
- And more!

For an extra challenge and/or variety, you can also use our EVERYTHING category that combines cards from all other categories!

Number of Players required:
4+ (There is a 2+ player mode as well, please see in-app instructions for details)

Forbidden is a card/board game in your pocket. It is perfect for non gamers, family gatherings, hanging with friends, game nights, long lines at theme parks, or cool uncles who feel the need to bring their entire boardgame collection to family gatherings (That last one is me)! Also, Forbidden works 100% offline!

Fun game to play with friends!

What a great game! I’ve played similar games to this and they are glitchy and not fun because of it. This game runs smoothly and has a decent number of cards to go through. My friends are already downloading it! Can’t wait to see the updates later on :)
