Truth Be Told Game-Review and Giveaway!


Wow, our family has had a lot of fun trying out all the new games we found at CHITAG. One that has quickly become a favorite is called Truth Be Told, by Buffalo Games. Buffalo Games has several fun party games that would be great for your holiday get-togethers! 
Truth be Told is a game that we have enjoyed playing with friends, or just our family (with 8 in our family, we’re basically a party!). Here’s how to play: each person gets a turn being the host (or hostess :). The host reads one of the cards (“Truth be told, I would love to learn...”) All the other players write down what they think the host wants to learn, and the host also writes his/her answer down. The players pass their cards in to the host, who then shuffles and reads the cards out loud, without divulging who wrote what. Then, the players vote on which answer they think is the the host’s answer. You score points by guessing correctly, having other people vote for your bluff, or, if you’re the host, then you score points by people vote for your answer. It can get pretty wild, and is so much fun to play! Some of the questions are pretty easy to guess what the host’s answer would be (especially when it’s just our family playing), but other questions are harder to figure out!






"Buffalo Games was started in 1986 with the idea of bringing new kinds of games and puzzles to families, friends, and people across America.  Our first runaway bestseller, the double sided Worlds’ Most Difficult Jigsaw Puzzle, virtually defined the specialty jigsaw puzzle and helped establish us as a market leader and innovative pioneer.
We began our own manufacturing operation in 1996, and launched a line of traditional jigsaw puzzles soon thereafter – pairing superior domestic craftsmanship with the best artists and licenses in the world.  Some of the best examples are puzzles featuring Photomosaics, Norman Rockwell, Dennis Lewan, Coca-Cola, Art Poulin, Audubon, and the Hautman Brothers.  Catering to all family puzzling needs, we cut puzzles in 300, 500, 750, 1000 and 2000 piece counts.
In 1998, we introduced our first board game in a long time, the wildly successful iMAgiNiff.  Entering its 12th year, iMAgiNiff has sold nearly 2 million units and is a bit of a cultural phenomenon.  Other successful family and party games in our line include Last Word, T-Shirt Game, RUIN and Likewise, all of which follow our guiding principle that games should be easy to learn and fun to play, making those family get-togethers, parties and game nights that much more fun and rewarding.
Fast Forward to 2007, and you’ll find Buffalo Games operating from an 87,000 square foot facility in Buffalo, New York (ah…so that’s where the name comes from), employing more than 80 full-time people and having a blast creating products that are a lot of fun for you.  Our new and distinctive offerings this year include four new jigsaw puzzle series, numerous line refreshers, and our new, laugh-out-loud, pretend-to-know-your friends party game, Truth Be Told!
Buffalo Games products appeal to a wide variety of people and will create hours of enjoyment for gatherings of both friends and family.  On the puzzle side, we continue to expand our array of licenses with tremendously popular properties like Peanuts, Norman Rockwell, Coca-Cola, etc.  Through it all, we are guided by our mission – to make life more fun and rewarding.  Fun is what we are all about, from our product line to our work environment to our consumer and business relationships.  At the same time, we are passionate about making life rewarding, by crafting puzzles and games with superior play value and unparalleled quality. We strive to have everything we do meet both ideals, knowing that you, in the end, will be the judge. So sit back, explore the site, check out our products and have fun with Buffalo Games."
