Does your Queen's English sound more Spice Girl than posh? Is your Cockney a little too Mockney, your Glaswegian a smidgen too Highlander? Could you pull off a convincing Russian accent without making a reference to vodka?
The game that will have you laughing your accents off!
It's simple: read a quote from a Quotation Card in the accent printed on the Accent Card selected; if your team mates guess correctly you win the points displayed on the accent card.
The trick is to convey the essence of the accent to your team mates, without giving any verbal or visual clues. Your team mates' jobs are to giggle hysterically, ridicule you and - regardless of how terrible your accent is - guess correctly.
Are you up for a laugh?
Accentuate is played by teams with a minimum of two players each. The aim is to guess which accent your teammate is trying to immitate. The opposing team may also have the chance to guess the accent and win a point should "All" be rolled on the dice.
Each team selects a speaker for the first round, who will roll the dice to determine play options - Swap, Play, Pass or All.
The speaker chooses a Quotation Card then an Accent Card. At this point the sand timer should be flipped and the speaker has 30 seconds to recite the quotation in an accent - without giving any other clue to the accent.
The speaker's team can confer before presenting the one official guess to win the points on the accent card. Play then passes to the next team. The game carries on for as many rounds as your like. The winning team is the first one to reach 15 points.
"Swap" you can get off the hook if you want to! Once you have seen your accent card and think "No way!" you can swap it just once, while the timer is running.
"Pass" roll this and you have the chance to pick another teammate to speak, before a Quotation card is chosen.
"Play" there’s no way out! No matter how awful it is you must read the quotation in the chosen accent!
"All" allows all teams to have a guess and win points!
Click the Play card to hear an accent - if you give up guessing the accent press the reveal card. Try another?
