Product Description

It's hilarious. It's outrageous. It's pure Balderdash! In this classic game, players earn points for guessing the correct answer, as well as bluffing others into thinking your made-up answer was correct. For 2 or more adults. Time to play 30-60 minutes.

Ruth and Elliot Handler and Harold "Matt" Matson launch a new company named Mattel out of a garage workshop in Southern California in 1945. The first Mattel products are picture-frames, but Elliott soon develops a side business in dollhouse furniture made from picture frame scraps. Harold Matson soon sells out to his partner, and, encouraged by the success of the doll furniture, the Handlers turned the company's emphasis to toys. "Leadership at Mattel is the ability to develop and communicate a compelling picture of the future that inspires and motivates others to take action. Leaders at Mattel align themselves with Mattel's core values, exhibit leadership competencies and drive for success in their business strategies. In this way, Mattel work's to achieve their vision of being The world's Premier Toy Brands - Today and Tomorrow." Every day as Mattel's 25,000 employees worldwide strive to realize that vision, their leadership team is guiding the way. Some of Mattel's brands include, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Toy Story, Power Wheels, Disney Princess, Disney Fairies, Thomas the tank, Thomas and Friends, Elmo, Sesame Street, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, Go Diego Go, and Dora the Explorer.

Features

This game is just hysterical!!! Every time we play we end up laughing so hard that we're crying! You have to have an imagination to play but the result is more fun than you could imagine to have in an evening. Not only are you learning interesting facts, you get to make up really funny answers and learn to be deceptive. This is a must have for anyone!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this game!!!

Two issues of frustration: 1. Trying to explain these directions to even the most intellectual of adults with any amount of alcohol in their system is a bit challenging. 2. Game comes with special writing pads that would quickly run out in a few nights of heavy playing.

Other than those two things, the game concept seems pretty fun.

    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Balderdash Game:

    I bought balderdash because i have played it once and i remembered it to be really fun! The great thing about it is I still have it and i still play it! It is really a great family game adults and kids 2 - 6 players. Now unfortunately if you certain friends or family or just younger kids in general the directions are really boring to read so if you have never played the game without someone else physically and verbally showing you how to play, i guarantee if you go by the directions booklet you are going to be bored out of your mind up to the moment you don't even feel like playing anymore.

          Comments about Mattel 1001134 Balderdash Game:

          This game is hilarious to play with family or friends. It will definitely break the ice if you have someone new to the family or circle of friends. Even though there is a dice you can roll that let's you know which topic to do, we just let everyone choose their own topic and leave the dice in the box. Be sure to keep a straight face if you are the one reading....because it can be hard at times not to laugh at other people's imagination!!

              Great way to stir the imagination. Barrels of fun for many adults. The wackier the answer the better results. No answer can be overlooked as you never know what the true answer can be.
