Review:
Play is simple. A Buzz Word is announced (e.g. feet) and clues are given for terms that use the Buzz Word (e.g. procrastinate = drag your feet, commit wholeheartedly = jump in with both feet, and bad dancers have them = two left feet). Points are awarded for correct associations. Testers suggested using Buzz Word as a break from the rigors of an English composition class to help enrich a child's writing and reading comprehension. Although set up for play by two teams, it could easily be adapted for group play as a party game, or it could be a fun and educational travel game by packing just the cards in a ziplock bag (without the pen, egg timer, and scoreboard) to play in the car. Clever, intelligent, challenging, fun, and educational.
