“Does your banana wear a bandana?” This fast-paced rhyming game gives players 2 minutes to ACT, DRAW, or SPEAK clues in order to get correct guesses from team members and rack up points.
Act it, draw it, speak it….the roll of the die determines which category you will play with your teammate. You have two minutes to give as many pairs of rhyming clues to your teammate as possible before the timer is up. Does your banana wear a bandana? This fast-paced rhyming game gives players two minutes to act, draw or speak clues in order to get correct guesses from team members and rack up points. Go through as many cards as you can in each round of play and get ready to laugh at the goofy antics your friends and family will go through trying to get these rhyming pairs across to their teammates. Includes 132 rhyming word pair cards with three sets of rhymes on each card, one die with symbols for act, draw, speak, one minute-timer, four drawing pads, four pencils and one score pad.
Our review team took one quick run through the directions and in no time they were on their way. The game premise is simple – every correct answer must rhyme. Easy right? Wrong! It’s a simple roll of the die tells you how you’ll be getting your teammate to guess the correct rhyme on your card – either by drawing, speaking, or using charades! Let’s just say, it took one round for the fun and the laughter to begin!
There aren’t too many components to Be.Rhymed – one die, a timer, pad for drawing and cards. Be.Rhymed has a compact size that makes it easy to transport. Other than the timer sticking a few times our team had absolutely no durability concerns.
It is in no way a detriment, but from a visual perspective their isn’t a whole lot going on with Be.Rhymed. What components there are all are designed well, colorful and professional but there really isn’t a lot to look at visually.
Be.Rhymed is one solid game. Every member of our review team was absolutely thrilled with how easy and how much fun it was to play. Simple, straightforward rules, and really fun means to an answer created a great atmosphere. And all it takes is one round of charades and the whole room will be up and moving!
For the record, our review team felt that speaking the clues was the easiest, followed by drawing, with the charades being the most difficult (but most fun) way.
Right on! With our blind price recommendations all of our judges nailed it. Look, there are no moving parts, no flashing lights, no game board. But for once, it seems like this company got it. For a game that is essentially cards and a die – priced under $15 is perfect!
Be.Rhymed combines different components of some of our most favorite games around – Pictionary, Taboo and charades. By it’s nature Be.Rhymed isn’t entirely unique, but the combination of the best parts of those classics sure makes this game a winner!
Overall our team liked Be.Rhymed – alot! It was fast paced, a lot of fun and a lot of laughs! By adding a bit of so many fun games, Be.Rhymed achieved its goal. In our mind, this could be an instant classic, fun for groups, fun for parties, fun for everyone! Awesome game!
