SmartGames 30 Seconds Multi-Player Board Game

Junior 30 Seconds Quick Thinking

The quick-thinking fast-talking board game for the whole family!


At the start of each round, the team throws the special 30 Seconds dice to determine that round's handicap. The dice has six sides and the values can be 0, 1, or 2. One player draws a card. Each card has a yellow side and a blue side. The player must use the size that corresponds to the square that their token is on. There are five words printed on each side. The opposing team then turns over the 30-second timer. The team's score is determined by taking the number of correct answers and subtracting the handicap. The team moves their token forward by the same number of squares as their score for the current round.

Clues are generally short with a strong emphasis on synonyms and associations. For example, if the answer is "Gauteng" the clue might be as simple as "in which province is Johannesburg found?". A possible clue might be "The area which was named after the first black president of South Africa", to which the answer is "Nelson Mandela Bay". The official rules regarding clues are restrictive and provision is made for penalties (moving backward). In most circumstances, house rules are more relaxed to increase the speed and enjoyment of the game.
