Poetry for Neanderthal

Poetry for Neanderthal


Traveling roughly 40,000 years into the past. You're gathered around the campfire with your companions, having a good ol' yarn and trying to one up each other with your superior poetry skills.


From the creators of Exploding Kittens comes their new hit game, Poetry for Neanderthal. It’s a family-friendly party game similar to Taboo, that will test your skills and have you in stitches the whole way through.

Poetry for Neanderthal is a competitive word guessing game in which you and your teammates have 90 seconds to communicate and guess as many words and phrases as possible to earn points and win the game. However, you can ONLY use single syllable words for clues. 


Eg: Your word is potato. Your clue might be ‘dirt circle, what taste good when mash’


But be careful, if you mess up and use a big word like ‘growing' or 'underground’ you’ll get bopped on the head with the NO stick and you lose points.


The team that can best regress and score highest shall claim victory!


220 cards
