Outburst II is an update of Outburst!. This edition included new topics from the first edition. As is Outburst!, teams take turns trying to guess as many of the 10 answers to a topic on the cards.
The game mechanism is very similar to the long time TV game show Family Feud. An example would be a Topic Card of "10 Salad Ingrediants." The team whose turn it was, would have to name the 10 salad ingrediants on the Topic Card by the time the minute sand timer runs out.
