The Chameleon

Game lets you be a Chameleon

Spark some fun competition during holiday gatherings with the Chameleon (Big Potato Games), a fast-paced social bluffing game with a simple goal to catch the Chameleon without giving away the secret word, or blend in and don’t get caught. All players except the Chameleon get a Code Card. If the Topic Card is Food, the dealer rolls the dice and players use the coordinates to determine a secret word like Chicken. Everyone shouts a related word such as farm, fried or tasty to prove they’re not the imposter. Players point out who they think is the Chameleon and the player with the most votes must reveal their identity. Topics go from movies and sports to phobias and mythical creatures. You can also create your own. Plastic-free packaging is an added bonus. Ages: 14+; Players: 3-8; MSRP $20. Go to amazon.com.
