Just One is a cooperative party game in which you play together to discover as many mystery words as possible. Find the best clue to help your teammate. Be unique, as all identical clues will be canceled!
A complete game is played over 13 cards. The goal is to get a score as close to 13 as possible. In case of a right answer, the players score 1 point. In case of the wrong answer, they lose the current card as well as the top card of the deck. Thus losing 2 points. In case of lack of answer, the players only lose the current card, and therefore only 1 point.
You have the choice – make the difference!
This was recommended to us by James when we were were looking for something ahead of a games night with friends new to the hobby. This was exactly what we were after as it was a simple game to learn and teach, a good laugh seeing how others interpret words and everybody has a good time as there are no real losers.
The fun is in thinking of something unique so as not to cancel each other out but not too obscure that the guesser ends up getting confused.
We actually found it harder to guess correctly when playing with (the max) 7 people, probably because of the higher odds of repeating clues. Even so, still a lot of fun and it has made it to the games night table several times now.
This great game is so easy, but can provide hours of fun and hilarious laughs. The components are super fun, the words are good and it plays well with a group of people as well as teams if need be. If playing with younger kids or teens, there may be a few things they have no idea about so we will go with a majority and if most people know it do it anyway as it can lead for some great laughs when someone has no idea what a word is, and can create complete chaos and confusion for the guesser. Or you can get them to change the number for an easier version. Lots of replayability too!
I have played this game with a number of people and they have all had a great time playing. Some of the clue words can be challenging, but overall it was very approachable. The challenge comes in trying to come up with a clue that is unique without stretching it too far. We've had lots of laughs talking about why people picked certain clues.
