Group Guess - Hip Hop Taboo Like Game
By LuPalm Wonders
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a group game with play similar to Taboo, but with words dedicated to Hip Hop culture such as Bling, Collard Greens and Snitches.
To play, groups should be divided into two teams. Team A selects a clue giver from their team who will attempt to get his or her team members to guess the main word at the top of each card without using any of the forbidden words below. Imagine trying to get your team to guess the word "Afro," but you must describe it without using the words Pick, Hair Style, 1980s, Puffs or Round.
Once the main word is guessed, another card appears and the team tries to collect as many cards as they can in the allotted time. If the clue giver says one of the forbidden words, the team will not be credited for that word.
After time expires, a player from Team B becomes the clue giver for their team. Teams alternate play until either team gets to a predetermined score, or until everyone has had a chance to be the clue giver.
You can play with the Hip Hop cards, a standard set of cards, or a combination of both, depending on the crowd you are playing with (see screenshots). There are over 1,200 cards to play, and the cards will not repeat until ALL the cards have been played. You will enjoy playing all of these great words with friends.
Other features include:
- A point is lost for skipping cards or getting buzzed.
- Score can be corrected at the end of each turn, in case an incorrect button is pressed during game play.
- Free lifetime upgrades as new words are added.

The creators need to rethink category clues
I started playing this game as an icebreaker for a group of women...the category was hip hop, but several of the clues had nothing to do with hip hop, and could also be viewed as racist.... Aunt jemima...ghetto, baby mama drama, ... Malcolm x, ... What the heck do these things have to do with hip hop? Watermelon was another clue that was ridiculous... If I'm not mistaken, watermelon is a fruit that is enjoyed by many cultures!!! The group of women that initially started playing was a very diverse group and they all felt that these were inappropriate.
This game is humiliating and racist. Apple should be ashamed that they let this be downloaded from their App Store. #lawsuit
