Guide Review - The Touch

Using only one sense -- touch -- players must pull various plastic figures out of the dome in The Touch, a creative and challenging party game.

A few versions of the rules allow for some customization, but the basic element of the game is reaching into a plastic dome and pulling out -- without looking, although the other players can watch -- the correct figure before time runs out. Players try to collect the most cards (each has two or three items pictured) and thus win.

The basic game comes with four dozen figures, such as a UFO, hamburger, shark, space shuttle, turtle and football; expansions are available. Believe me, it sounds much easier than it is. The Touch is a wonderful party game.
