Catholic BLURT is based on the game Bible Blurt.
Catholic BLURT! For 3 Players or 4 Teams. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
A fun and exciting way to review the Bible and the Catholic faith. When the Reader gives the Definition, blurt out the word you think it defines. There’s no penalty for wrong answers. You can blurt as many times as you want until somebody gets the correct answer. If you’re the first one to blurt the correct answer, move your pawn the number of spaces rolled by the Reader. If there’s a tie, read another Definition. Only the players who tied can blurt. If you land on a square that’s already occupied by another pawn, there’s gonna be a Showdown! The two players on the square have a Definition read to them by another player. If you’re first to blurt the correct word, you win the Showdown and may remain on the square. If you’re not first, you have to go backward the amount of squares shown on the die. If you land on a square that matches the color of your pawn, this is your big chance to challenge another player and takeover his or her square! Place your pawn on the same square with the player you want to challenge. Play the same way as you would in a Showdown, except the winner remains on the lead square, and the loser has to go back to the square from which the challenger came. The first player or team to return to “Start,” after going all the way around the Game Board, is the . . . WINNER! You don’t have to land there by exact count.
