Just One-Board Game-Award Winning
Just One is a cooperative party game for 3 to 7 players, designed by Ludovic Roudy and Bruno Sautter and published by Repos Production in 2018. In each round of the game, players write down a one word clue for the round's guesser, who must figure out the secret word for the round. Identical clues are discarded before the guesser sees them.
The game is played over 13 rounds, during which players give one word clues to the round's guesser to help that person guess the hidden word for the round. Duplicate clues are removed before the guesser sees them, so giving clues which are too obvious can backfire. A right guess scores a point while a wrong one loses a point, with players trying to score as high as possible over the game's rounds. A typical game takes about 20 minutes.
