If you like “Words with Friends” or other social word games for iPhone or iPad then you are going to love this iOS application “Can’t Say That!” developed by Fugazo – I love Turn- taking, arcade type games like this and I’m already addicted to this one after a few days, its great fun.
Getting Started with Can’t Say That!
Fugazo have realised their error of only allowing you to play via Facebook and are currently working on allowing you to create an account via email, which I would much prefer. I do hate it when you are forced to sign in with your Facebook account.
However right now, when you first sign in to – Can’t Say That – you are requested to sign in using Facebook, you do not need to have to post to Facebook at all, just change that option – and nothing goes through as far as I have seen.
You can chose to play with one of your friends or just someone random, random people pop up right away and so far they have been quick to play the game and no one messing around…yet !
How to play Can’t Say That!
You have to describe the given word of which you have three choices, – Easy, Medium, Hard – Actually, its technical set up is very similar to Draw Free or Drawsomething
When you have chosen your word you are next sent to a page where you type your clues – here you are told the words you cannot use when you are describing the word.
For instance I had the word – Locomotive but I could not use the words Train, Engineer, Rail, Coal or Track in my description of 24 charactors. Its a great twist as you do not know what the words are that you can’t say until you have chosen the word that you want to describe, just know that it will be the words that you were going to use! Hehe!
Guessing a word
You read your opponents description realising that the most obvious words they could not use. So think, what are they not saying. Then use the tiles to guess the word.
You can use a hint, ask what Category and ? which places a letter in the correct place for you. If you really can’t get it, you can forfeit.
You can also buy new word packs with your winnings.
I have played this on both iPad and iPhone and both were smooth running with a great design. There is a free and a paid version which I assume doesn’t have ads.
I’m glad I found this turn taking game, and I know that you will enjoy it too.
