Just One is a cooperative party game in which you play together to discover as many mystery words as possible. Find the best clue to help your teammate. Be unique, as all identical clues will be cancelled! A complete game is played over 13 cards. The goal is to get a score as close to 13 as possible. In case of a right answer, the players score 1 point. In case of wrong answer, they lose the current card as well as the top card of the deck. Thus losing 2 points. In case of lack of answer, the players only lose the current card, and therefore only 1 point.

In this game you will have to find a new way to describe a word in one different word. The obvious word isn’t always the better choice. You will have to work on your vocabulary skills, especially on your synonyms.  You have to find the right moment to give an obvious clue word. Sometimes it’s better to think differently but not too differently because the guesser needs to understand your clue. 
 
Funny stories: When you play with 5 players and everybody has written the same clue, so the guesser gets no clues as a result.  When nobody understands your clue but after you explain it, everybody finds it perfect! When you only play “word games”: When you combine the word you have to guess with another to create a third one. For example: you have to guess the word “sweet”. So you put “her” as a clue “Sweeter”
