This is one game where you'll have to "bite your tongue" from saying one of the five "Taboo" words on each card. More than once we got buzzed for blurting out a Taboo word. It's really challenging if you're not familiar with the famous name. You can pass as many times as you want, but there might be a penalty for doing this, I don't remember.
Overall, if you keep up with the rich and famous, you will like this game better than if you don't. The game is from around 2000, so anyone who became famous after that will not be in here. So no American Idol winners names here, which I think is a good thing.
