It's a Race Against Time..!

Fun, fast, frantic and infuriating...
... that's the game of TENSION!

In under a minute you race to name 10 examples to a given subject - it could be ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING: from "Things made of leather" to "Foods that are naughty - but nice!"

Sounds rather too easy, doesn't it? But there's a wicked catch...
...only answers matching those given on the playing cards will count!

New & improved, this Board Game Edition includes the tense "Where in the World" CD teaser... It's an extra 10-clue round in which everyone races to be the first to solve a mystery place or personality.

Contents:
* 3 double-sided Tension Card Decks
* Score Pad
* Game Board
* Counters
* Pencil
* Concise Rules
* Sand timer
* 99-track Game
* Timer Audio CD*

*CD enchances play but the game can be enjoyed using sand timer & booklet if CD player unavailable.

The game 'Tension' is a fun family game that really makes you think and yet can be enjoyed from start to finish. The box is nicely decorated and the contents are of good quality. The aim of the game is to name things associated with a subject, hopefully naming the 10 selected things on the card. Once the timer is out (30 seconds) you move your token along the board. The first team to reach the centre square is the winner.

What I like most about 'Tension' is that the categories are wide and varied ranging from "Fads and Fashions of the 60s" to "Abba Hits" and "Carry-On Films". The harder categories are things like "Things that are sticky" and "Black Things" which have endless answers. It's almost like Family Fortunes in that you need the top answers (with a few red herrings thrown in just for fun). The way in which I would improve this game is to provide a way in which 3 people can play, i.e. without teams. Also, allow extra cards to be purchased online (in two games with my Mum and Boyfriend, we managed to use up all the subjects!).

All in all I would recommend this game to any family or group of friends, with a rating of 5 out of 5!!
