What It Is
What It Is
Coffee Talk is a game designed to get people talking about all kinds of things. Choose a topic card and then players have 45 seconds to write down whatever comes to mind about that topic. Topics cover popular culture and range from Las Vegas to Lindsay Lohan. Once time runs out, players share their answers. You score a point for every unique answer you've written down, which means no one else wrote down the same answer. If you've written down something that other players have challenged, play a Sugar Packet card to make your answer count. You can also play a Creamer card if you want to pick a different topic. When you draw an Instant Coffee card, the round is played out loud with each player saying one answer until one player is "freeze-dried" and can't think of anything else to say. Keep score by moving your coffee bean up (or down—yes, you can lose points!) your coffee cup. The first player to the top of the lid wins.
Coffee Talk comes with 150 topic cards with 300 topics, 15 Instant Coffee cards, 12 Sugar Packet cards, 12 Creamer cards, six plastic coffee beans, six coffee cup scoring boards, a 45-second sand timer, six score pads, and rules. The game is for two or more players.
Why It’s Fun
If you're a fan of Scattergories, you'll like Coffee Talk because the gameplay is similar, and the updated topics will make the game more contemporary. You've got to be creative and come up with answers that no one else will think of so you can score points and win. You never know what someone will write down, which makes the game silly and entertaining.
Mostly, though, like any good game, it's going to inspire social interaction among players that will be different every time it's played.
