Who are the Taboo Cards For?
These February Taboo Cards are best used as an Adult Valentine’s Day Party idea. Some of the words may be too difficult for younger players or more PG-13. If you wish to adapt for a kids’ party, read through the cards before you get started if you’re playing with kids or teens.
Just remove the cards that you’d like to avoid and store them with the adult set of clues separately.
We also included blank cards so you can add your own forbidden words that might be age-appropriate for younger kids.
How to Play Valentine Taboo Cards
The taboo game rules are simple. To get started, players will break into small teams of 3-4 people each.
The first player begins the guessing game by drawing one card and then reading the “guess word” to themself. The word at the top of the card is the word/phrase they will be described so the other players on their team will guess it.
The words below are the “forbidden words” that the clue giver should avoid.
Clues are given one Valentine’s word at a time, with the team members guessing until they get the word. To make sure the game stays on task, a one-minute timer can be used.
If the teammates guess the word, the team gets the point.
The game works well for groups as small as 4 and doesn’t need an even number to play, making it easy to plan activities for any party, gathering, or event. Players will be on the edge of their seats trying to declare their team the winner!
