When you play Outburst one of the two teams goes first. The hard part is that all the players are free to speak at the same time to attempt to guess as many, or all, of the words that are on the list before the time runs out. Whenever the time runs out the team receives as many points as successful guesses. The twist is that your team also gets a bonus that is determined by the luck of rolling the dice. The game is simple, as you can see, and you play until you get to 60 points. The first team to reach 60 points is, of course, the winner of Outburst. The cool thing about Outburst is that there is a special viewer that you use that prevents the cards from being read. In fact, the only part of the card that you will be able to read is the topic or heading. Then when you are done you are able to place the card in the viewer and read what was on the list. During the game you and your team mates can choose to pass on a topic, up to three times during one game. You can only pass once a turn and the other player must play on the topic that was passed to them on their next turn. Outburst is a great game, and you will not be able to get enough of it and neither will your friends. You may not be able to get them out of your house.
Outburst is a great game and is very fun to play. Most of the questions on Outburst are timeless, however, if you have had the game for a long time you may want to let the players know of the year of publication before you start playing. This way they know what to expect, and some of the questions could change over time. However, this game is fun either way, and I have never had a party that did not enjoy playing a little Outburst. One thing that makes the game so funny is the things that people say whenever they are in a hurry to beat the clock. Because of this you are going to hear some pretty funny things that come out of their mouths that are not even on topic, and that is the main reason why Outburst is such a fun game. Whenever we are in a hurry we make mistakes, and when you are playing a game like Outburst you will see that they are pretty funny mistakes.
