A competitive word-guessing game where you must speak good or get hit with stick.
Poetry for Neanderthals™ is a family-friendly party game similar to Taboo where players earn points by getting their teammates to guess words and phrases. The catch is that you are only allowed to use single syllable words. So, instead of saying "broccoli," you'd say something like "green thing you eat for live long and have good health." If you mess up and use any words with more than one syllable, such as "vegetable," the other teams gets to bop you with a 2-foot inflatable NO! club and you lose points.
The goal of the game is to score the most points by correctly interpreting words and phrases. The chosen Poet starts off the game with a Poetry Card and tries to get their teammates to say the listed word, using only words with one syllable within a 90-second time limit.
The team with the most points is the winner.
