About this item

Highlights

  • A social deduction board game where players must race to catch the Chameleon before it's too late.
  • Everyone knows the secret word - except for the player with the Chameleon card.
  • Use hidden codes, carefully chosen words, and a bit of finger pointing to track down the guilty player... before they blend in and escape!
  • Like all good board games for families, it takes 2 minutes to learn and only 15 minutes to play. Recommended for 3-8 players and ages 14+. A great game for large groups.
  • Next time you get together with family and friends, bring along a Spin Master game. The perfect activity for memorable game nights, birthdays, dinner parties, vacations, holiday & Christmas gifts, and any time you just want to have fun!

Description

Blend in. Don’t get caught. Six players. One word each. Everyone sounded pretty convincing, but someone isn’t who they say they are. That someone is The Chameleon. In each round of The Chameleon, a secret word is selected from a Topic Card in the middle of the table. Everyone knows what the word is, except for the player with the Chameleon card… but which player is it? Using cunning, social deduction and some serious mob mentality, each player shouts out a related word to prove their innocence and tries to track down the impostor. Once everyone’s said their piece, the voting begins and the moment of truth arrives. In order to successfully track down the guilty player and win the game, players will have to use all of their teamwork and witch-hunting skills. If you’re the Chameleon, however, the rules are much more simple. Don’t. Get. Caught.

Great party game! We played with 3 people but it would be more fun with 4 or more people. It makes you channel your lying skills. It's easy to pick up and explain.

This game was so fun! We played with mostly millennials but one Gen Z and everybody was paranoid, laughing, thinking, and screaming. I thought we would get tired of it and move on to another game but we played it for hours.

My family and I played 4 board games today during our Thanksgiving gathering, and this one was unanimously voted the most fun out of all of them! My kids (12 and 15) were surprisingly quite good at blending in when they were the chameleons and we were in tears laughing when we were discussing who we believed was the chameleon! A handful of times we were shocked to find out we picked the wrong person! Love that this game is pretty fast, averaging about 7 minutes for each game (we had 5 people playing). Loved it so much that I already bought one to give as a Xmas gift! Highly recommend this game to play with family or a group of friends!!

This is a great game to play with 7 players. Any more than 7 players, then maybe have couples/close friends/siblings be on teams. It is very fun to play, and it's easy to understand once you spend 5 or so minutes reading/explaining the game. CONS: - There are topic cards, which EVERYONE playing the game is supposed to see at all times, is VERY small. If you keep it at the center of the table, not everyone can read it. Especially if the card is not facing your direction. (larger word size would be easier to do this) We ended up just passing the topic card in order of how we were sitting, because we cant see the words!! Way too small, and we all are in our 20s and have "good" eyesight. (We will be projecting the topic card onto the TV next time). PROS: - Good for all ages, it can be as competitive as the people playing want it to be. - Easy to get into. - Comes with an empty topic card and a dry erase marker, so players can make their own nouns and topics, as well. - Worth the price, and doesn't require 4 hours to play, or a long time to setup. HOUSE RULES: We made our own house rule to make the game more challenging. You wont understand this until you read the instructions, so come back after that. Mostly same rules as usual. Except, one player gets a card from the OPPOSITE team color. You would want everyone to keep their cards on their lap, and hidden. So, if everyone was giving a GREEN card, have one player get a BLUE card (or vice versa). The cordinates on their card is different than the GREEN. This makes it so that way there is a FAKE Chameleon in the game. It allows the real Chameleon to blend in more, or even throw them off. It also makes it harder to know if we're voting the real Chameleon out, or a friendly ally who may have the wrong cordinates. During voting, we dont end the game if we voted an innocent person out. That person is KNOCKED OUT of the game, then the dice is re-rolled for a new noun, and the game continues. The game will continue until The Chameleon is voted out (and doesnt guess the right topic when voted out), or there is only one innocent person left (1v1, then The Chameleon wins)

We really enjoyed this game as a family. It’s easy to learn and join in the fun! Really something anyone can pick up within a couple minutes. I would say it’s probably for people 10 and older just because of the topics and understanding, maybe a little younger if you have a good reader. It’s not a long drawn out critical thinking type of game, but more light, and easy to add and drop people. This game seems to be best played with 6-8 people, too few and it will become obvious who the chameleon is, too many and it becomes easy for the chameleon to blend in. My only complaint is there feels like no obvious scoring or ending to game.

This game is a lot of fun. We have kids aged 8-15 and they were all able to engage and play. Well worth the money & was a fun game night! The kids still ask to play it all the time over others we got for Christmas.
