I love games like this so was very keen to try 5 Second Rule out.

It should be easy to name 3 things that you brush...or 3 famous Michaels...or even 3 things that you might find behind the settee cushions...but can you do it under the pressure of 5 seconds twisting down and with the other players staring, waiting for you to get flustered? Time is not on your side, so just say what comes to mind and risk ridiculous answers slipping out as time twirls down on the unique spiral timer. It's all in good fun with this fast-paced family game for ages 8 & up.  University Games   RRP £19.99

The whole family (and some friends) picked this game up really quickly.  The little ones loved controlling the special timer.  It is amazing how quick 5 seconds goes when you are trying to have your own go but when its someone else's you can think of the answers so easily.  We had a riotous time with many many laughs.  We found that we could play this game with or without the board as the mood has taken us.  It has been a great addition to the coffee table and the ability to get it out very quickly and play a game with everyone has been just so much fun. 

How to Play
The winner of 5 Second Rule is the first player to reach the finish spot through thinking quickly and holding their nerve. Each player takes a turn in the hot seat and has to answer a question, such as “Name 3 things you can paint” or “Name 3 yellow foods”. They then have five seconds to think of three answers – and say them all aloud before the small silver balls reach the bottom of the spiral timer. If three correct answers are given the player gets to move forward one space on the board. If three correct answers are not given, the same question is asked of the next player – and they have to give three completely different answers. PASS ON and SWITCH cards are there to help along the way, but watch out for the Danger Zones on the game board as you could miss a turn. The questions for 5 Second Rule have been carefully written so that children as young as 8 can enjoy all the fun of this must-have family game.

I would very much recommend 5 Second Rule from University Games.
