Poetry for Neanderthals is a competitive word-guessing game where you can only give clues by speaking in single syllables. So, instead of saying "broccoli," you'd say something like "green thing you eat for live long and have good health." If you mess up and use a big word, such as "vegetable," you get bopped on the head with a NO! Stick. It's a game that forces you to explain complicated ideas using simple vocabulary.
Poetry for Neanderthals is fun for both grownups and children
It takes a few minutes to learn and about 20 minutes to play
It's a hilarious, cutthroat, challenging game for those who consider themselves mighty wordsmiths
Warning: Choking Hazard - Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.
