YACKETY SMACK is a totally crazy and basic party game. It is published by Think Fun and available only on North America.
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 ...
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!
