Do you, like me, enjoy Christmas Morning, seeing everyone open their presents and have fun. Then eat your Christmas Dinner which has been lovingly cooked. What do you do in the afternoon?
We, as a family, always have a games afternoon, usually with the latest ‘Must Have’ game. Well this year will be no different.
Accentuate is one of this year’s games. It is played in teams of two or more and sounds hilarious.
Included in the box are :-
90 Accent cards, 90 Film Quotation Cards, a timer, a full set of rules and a dice. All you need is a piece of paper and a pen/pencil for noting down scores of the teams.
The first team, picks a speaker. You throw the dice to show your play options. There is a Swap symbol, a pass symbol, 3 play symbols and an ‘All’ symbol on the dice. Once thrown it will show one of the following:-
- Swap – You can get off the hook if you want to. If, while the timer’s running, you look at your accent card and think “No Way!”, you can swap it once. You simply pop the card to the back of the pack and pick a new one.
- Pass – If you roll this you can pick another teammate to speak. You have to choose someone else before you read the Quotation Card though.
- Play – There is no way out with this symbol. No matter how awful it is,m you have to read the quotation in the chosen accent.
- All – All teams have one guess at identifying the accent every correct guess wins points.
The game then begins. You take a quotation card and recite to your team in your usual accent. Then things get harder. You take an accent card from the top of the pack and repeat the film quote in the given accent, for as many times as you like over the next 30 seconds. Don’t forget to turn the timer. You are not allowed to make head gestures, hand gestures or give any other clues during this time.
Once the time is up, and unless the All symbol has been thrown, the opposite team have one chance to guess the accent, the film and the release date of the same. Points are scored for each correct answer.
Used cards are then put to the back of the pack.
I cant wait to play this with my grand children on Christmas Day. We always have a laugh so this should be really good. I am sure you could like to join your family playing this game.
