Word Slam Game Night

Word Slam Game Night
― Aug 11 - 13, 2017 ―

Thames & Kosmos is back with another fast-paced, exciting game: Word Slam! Word Slam is like charades, but instead of acting, one can only communicate with word cards. Storytellers must creatively use a limited number of these cards to tell the story and lead their teammates to guess the correct answer words.

Winner of the Parents' Choice Silver Honor Award, Word Slam is a great party game for anyone ages 12+! The 200- answer cards contain a total of 1,200 words, names, and terms to guess, providing a lot of variety. In addition, four different levels of difficulty on each answer card ensures that people of all different experience levels can play.

Tryazon will select 100 hosts for this opportunity. Those chosen will receive a party pack with copies of Word Slam and more to showcase and sample to friends and family! Learn more about the products and party by clicking the tabs below!

Hosts selected for this party will receive a party pack valued at $79+, containing the following items:

  • 2 copies of Word Slam
  • Additional party extras for your group (special discounts, Word Slam buttons, and more!)
  • Word Slam Game Night Host Guide to help you plan and carry out the party!

In Word Slam, two teams each have a storyteller. The two storytellers are given the same answer term. Playing at the same time, they must give clues to their teams so the teams can correctly guess the answer. And they must do this quickly, because they are racing the timer and each other. But it’s not that easy. Speaking and acting is absolutely forbidden for the storytellers! They must tell their stories using only 105 cards, each with one word on it: a noun, verb, adjective, or preposition.

The storyteller must be creative in using this limited vocabulary to tell the story. And the team members must think quickly and nimbly to interpret the story cards. The team that correctly guesses the answer first gets a point, and the team with the most points at the end of the game wins.


About Thames & Kosmos

Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 by a science museum director and her son, who saw the great need and demand for better science education materials—resources for parents and their children that are more engaging, more effective, more relevant, and more fun. Our mission has since expanded from its STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) roots to encompass other educational branches as well, including arts and crafts and early childhood learning, and most recently, the multitude of thinking and social skills that can be taught through board games.

The games in our new—but quickly growing!—board game catalog are not only fun, enchanting, and addictive, but also beneficial and wholesome in so many ways: These games stimulate logical and strategic thinking, promote visual-spatial and math skills, cultivate physical coordination and manual dexterity, encourage family time, and inspire fair-mindedness, confidence, and honorable attitudes. For all these reasons, our games become enduring family favorites and game night classics—fun for both kids and adults!
