The market seems to have quite a few party games popin up these days. So what make hintegers different? Well.....
Hintegers is the social game of figuring out what number someone is thinking of. Each turn, the Hint Giver provides a one word hint related to their category, and secretly selects a number 1 through 10. The other players then play a card trying to match the number. Stumped? Use a lifeline! As the Hint Giver, be sure not to give easy hints as only the players that match get one step closer to winning! The object of the game it get down to having only 3 numbers left in your hand, and you get rid of numbers by successfully guessing (or giving a successful hint!) Laugh and Learn in this thought provoking party game, it's as easy as picking a number 1 through 10.
The box is small and portable, and the cards are excellent quality. The first thing I want to say after playing this game several time is that it is hard, and I mean that in a good way. It seems like a simple concept that you just pick a word based on a topic and then pick a number. I mean someone has to guess that number right? WRONG, you are so very WRONG. It is all based on your experiences vs. other peoples experiences. What you think is an obvious clue may not be. And you might suffer from analysis paralysis trying to just get down to one word.
It's beneficial that you do not need to get every card eliminated to win and these three cards help that process. I love the addition of these three lifelines in the game, they helped me win a couple of times. If you are looking for a challenging password style party game, you should check this one out.
