Time’s Up! Party is a party game to play with friends or family. The players split into teams and divide 30 cards between themselves, plus two cards per player.
Each player then chooses 2 cards they feel are too difficult and returns them to the box. The remaining cards are then shuffled to create the deck, and the game can begin. Time’s Up! Party is played over three rounds. The players will have to get their teammates to guess titles of works, celebrities, places, and other unusual items as written on the cards.
During each round, in turn, each player will have 30 seconds to get their teammates to guess as many words as possible. Each guessed word will be worth 1 point for their team. During the first round, the player will be able to describe the subject using words to give clues. For the second, each player will only be allowed a single word to get their subject guessed. Finally, on the third and final round, players who are making their team guess are no longer allowed to speak! They will have to mime, hum, or make noises to make their partners guess words. At the end of the three rounds, the team with the highest score wins the game.
