Trophies is a quick and easy party game for 2-30 players. Game time is 5-15 minutes. You can teach others to play in ten seconds or less.
Be the first to say a word that matches the topic at the back of the deck and the letter at the front of the deck and you win a trophy card. The player with the most trophies at the end wins the game and gets to hoist the metal trophy high above their head in triumph! The person who “tried their best” gets a participation trophy. That’s all there is to it!
You may be surprised by how simple yet addictive (and loud) this game can be. Great for Thursdays or other evenings when you want to play a game but don’t have much time and want to jump right in!
The game comes in an antique-looking metal tin and includes 70 trophy cards, each with a unique illustration and hilarious caption. The cards contain 350 different topics. The game also includes a teeny tiny metal trophy.
Save games with long explanations for the weekend. We guarantee that you can teach this "Game for Thursdays" to your friends in 10 seconds or less, or we'll be your friends instead.
