Prepare to utter things you never thought you’d be saying out loud (or at least in front of people). If this version is too saucy for you, then just stick to the original Taboo. 

And if you’re not a fan of Taboo, then this Reverse Charades Game (which has the entire team acting out the words for one person) is another great option. Get both at Walmart and enjoy up to 3% cash back.

Host a Murder Mystery Game Night
