Pointing Fingers Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

Pointing Fingers is a game that's all about answering Have you ever? or Would you ever? questions ... and wearing large foam fingers while playing. The game comes with six foam fingers, six truth meters, and 100 question cards. Each player gets one truth meter and one foam finger. When you put on your foam finger, you must take the Oath of Honesty and tell the truth while playing. Players take turns drawing cards and reading one of the card's three questions aloud. Everyone, including the reader, secretly rotates the finger on their truth meter to "No! Never!", "Once", "Sometimes", or "Yes! Always". On the count of three, all players point their foam finger at the person they think is most likely to have picked "Yes! Always". The player with the most fingers pointed at him reveals his truth meter first. Depending on what the player chose, the people pointing at the person will score points. "No! Never" is worth 0 points, "Once" is worth 1 point, "Sometimes" is worth 2 points, and "Yes! Always" is worth 3 points. To keep score, rotate the wheel on your truth meter. The other players continue revealing their truth meters, and players continue to score based on what the person they pointed at chose. The first player to reach 21 points wins.

Is It Fun?

This is a fun party game where you might learn some very interesting things about your friends and family. The questions can be thought-provoking (Would you ever pick fame over fortune?) and oftentimes silly (Have you ever gotten caught picking a wedgie in public?). The game is easy to play and wearing the foam fingers just adds to the fun.

Who It’s For
