Why We Like It:

If you like Time\'s Up, you will probably like this sequel. It is a fun party game. Players take turns trying to get their partners to guess famous titles of songs, movies, fine art, etc. The first round, pretty much anything goes. You can say whatever you think will get your partner to guess correctly, as long as you don\'t say any words on the card. But you can\'t pass. This is where the title version is slightly easier than the name version. If the title on your card is something your teammate has never heard, you can try to work out the various words. (ie If he/she is not familiar with \"The Blue Boy,\" you can probably still get those words out, whereas if someone doesn\'t know the name Shahrazad... good luck.)

The second round, you use the same titles and can say only one word to get a guess and you can pass if you can\'t think of a good one. This round usually goes pretty fast. The third round, no words are allowed. Your partner must guess off gestures and sound effects only.

Title Recall also adds an optional fourth round where players guess the titles based on a single pose. This sounded pretty difficult so we haven\'t tried it, figuring why mess with a good thing, but it could be fun.

The game is best played with four or six players (with six you can do two teams of three or three teams of two), more players and things can get hard to follow.

This is definitly one of my favorite games, but I still had to take away one star because the makers downgraded the sand timer. You get a teeny tiny timer that is very difficult to see. Several times the sand was stuck and it took time for anyone to notice. We\'ve mostly taken to passing the timer around the table so one person is in charge of watching it (holding it at eye level is about the only way most of us could see it), but it would work so much better if everyone could watch it.
