Fishbowl Party Game

Fishbowl Party Game

Azaris Studios Inc.

Fishbowl is a fun and hilarious party game for 4-20 players where two teams do and say anything and everything to guess as many clues as possible in 60 second turns. Fishbowl is fast paced, always new, and easy to play in small or large groups with 3 simple rules.

WHY PLAY FISHBOWL?

It’s the perfect game for any dinner party, birthday or office party. It's great as an icebreaker or to create tons of laughs and memories with your best friends. You can play Fishbowl over and over and it’s always funny and unexpected as the clues change every time you play.

It's easy for you to setup, and doesn't require anything other than the space to play. You can use a single phone or everyone at your party can join using their own phones.

Fishbowl is FREE to play with our huge database of ready-to-go clues that are updated daily. You can also buy special themed clue packs full of the best and most funny phrases. The best way to play is to have everyone at your party write their own clues with a one-time purchase of the “Write Your Own Clues” pack. For the quickest setup you can combine your own clues with one or more ready-to-go clue packs.

Writing your own clues is the best part – each player writes random word combinations, inside jokes, and makes fun of each other to create the game. This will cause lots of giggling and scheming.

HOW TO PLAY

Fishbowl combines verbal charades and taboo into 60 second lighting rounds where you have to get your team to guess the words in the clues without using any of the words in the clue, saying rhymes with, or spelling it out before timer runs out. Tap the clue when your team guesses it right in order to get another. The team with the most clues when the Fishbowl is empty wins!

FEATURES

- You can share the game with the other players at your party so they can write clues and play on their own phones
- Your games are automatically saved so you can interrupt the game and continue playing whenever you want
- You can view player statistics
- You can restart a game to reuse your clues from a previous game
- Your phone will beep and vibrate automatically when your turn ends
- Fishbowl also keeps track of who’s up next so you don’t have to
