YACKETY SMACK includes a voice recorder and 48 cards divided into 4 types (Opera singer, Karateka, Splash and Question mark). Each type of card has a specific sound:

- Song for an opera singer
- Karateka cry for Karateka
- Sound of Splursh, sploush, etc ... for the Splash
- Anything for the question mark

The cards are distributed to everyone and one of the players records 2 of the 4 possible sounds (or even twice the same), then a card is placed face up, in front of either, each in turn. As soon as you have at least 2 visible cards corresponding to the recorded sounds, you must be the first to tap on the voice recorder in the center.

Example : Roberto has recorded "KWAÏ, LALALALAAAAA !"

You have to press on the voice recorder when you will have a Karateka card and an Opera Singer visible. The fastest wins all cards played. Then he records a new sequence of sounds, and so on ...

How did I create the game?

For YACKETY SMACK, it was the online purchase of several Voice Recorders and their extensive use at the FRAGALAB that gave rise to the idea of ​​creating a deck of cards with recordable missions.

100% DUCK, my first prototype was based on animals, with Cow, Horse, Rooster and Duck cards, so I had to record series of “Coin coin, Meeuuhhh! Or "Tagadatagada, tagadatagada! " And so on.

The game was almost published by Goliath under the name TENFAIUNFOIN, but in the end it was Think Fun that won!
