Flummoxed: The Foreign Language Bluffer’s Game

(2 customer reviews)


Don’t worry if you are completely floored by Finnish or totally baffled by Bulgarian. It doesn’t matter a jot if Japanese is all Greek to you and Swahili sounds like Double Dutch. Nothing’s lost if you’re ineffective in Efik and totally hopeless in Hopi. Anyone who can bluff in English, can certainly flummox in Flummoxed and thoroughly enjoy this marvelous play on words.

Players: 4+ (best with 5-8 players)

Ages: 8+

Time: 30 minutes

Designer: Leslie Scott & Sara Finch

Type of Game: Party Game / Large Player Amount / Bluffing / Creative Writing


At the beginning of each round, one player, The Reader, picks up a card. Printed on one side of the card are background notes on a foreign language. On the other side are six words in that language, plus an English definition of each word.

The Reader reads one word aloud, revealing the language from which the word comes, but not the meaning of the word. Each other player has to ‘translate’ the given word and write a fake but plausible definition for it in an attempt to bluff fellow players into believing the definition is correct.

    We played this game with some friends after dinner – it was brilliant fun. Absolutely hilarious definition inventions by some had the whole group in fits. I thoroughly recommend this game. It’s just a lovely, fun game – the sort of thing I’d look to play at Christmas with a large group of friends and family.

    My friend bought this round at Christmas and we had an absolutely hilarious fun time playing this game. This is my favourite game of all time! you end up learning so many interesting things aswell as using your creative mind. What a fantastic invention. The American “Balderdash” is a horrible rip off of this first class English game. Can’t reccommend it enough!
