What It Is

Tapple is a new game with some fairly classic gameplay, but what's new is an electronic game unit. The object of the game is to name items in a category and eliminate those initial letters that have already been used. Remove the cards from the storage space underneath the unit, and set the unit in the middle of the table. Turn it on, and you're ready to play. The first player selects a category card. The red and orange side is more difficult than the blue and white side, so you can customize the game to the players. Press the time button in the center, name something that fits the category, and press the button to end your turn. The 10-second timer resets and the turn passes. You're eliminated if you can't think of something in the 10 seconds or your answer is deemed wrong by a majority of other players. The last player left wins the round and takes the card. The player with the most cards after however many rounds you want to play wins. There are overtime rules in case players aren't eliminated. The game is for two or more players.

Is It Fun?

This is a fast-paced game that gets players thinking quickly and creatively. It also challenges how much you know in any given category.

Who It’s For

Tapple is recommended for ages 8 and up, but younger kids can probably play as well.

What To Be Aware Of

The game takes two AA batteries that are not included.
