Just OneAdd to cart
Dustin recommends Just One as a great game to review terminology for a specific unit or content area. It is also a great game for language learning. And an amazing party game for playing at home with friends and family!
Just One is a cooperative party game in which you play together to discover as many mystery words as possible. Find the best clue to help your teammate. Be unique, as all identical clues will be cancelled! A complete game is played over 13 cards. The goal is to get a score as close to 13 as possible. In case of a right answer, the players score 1 point. In case of wrong answer, they lose the current card as well as the top card of the deck. Thus losing 2 points.
