The original Mattel edition is far, far better than the recent one. But if you have neither, then the new one will suffice (with it's less interesting photos and card graphics).

One of the best. Makes you laugh, think, wonder, make tough decisions, and feel glad you have your friends and family around you (sometimes all at once)! Gotta love that.

Super fun game. My parents having been happily married for over 20 years never lose, but it is always exciting to see when my girlfriend and I can get close to beating them.

This game plays great with non-gaming couples, but I really need another edition, so we can stop staring at the make-out couple all the time.

We play with a variant credited to Adam Smiles: on an exact match, that card is removed from the deck. This keeps a team from relying on the same cards (the studious guy, Satan, Julia Child) over and over.

The scoring track is numbered wrong (says me), but the whole matching picture cards mechanic is genius. I understand there's an expansion with new cards.

A great game for couples. How well do you know your partner! The sad thing is when we play it more often than not, we find we match with everyone but our partner! This leads to interesting recriminations.

Just won on eBay, eagerly awaiting for it to arrive in the mail. I plan on playing this with my girlfriend and her roommates at a game day soon. I'd played it before with Chris and Kara at the beach, and remember having a really fun time with it! [update] Have played this several times since and always had a really fun time. A lot of the pictures are hilarious in conjunction with the concepts you're trying to match, so there's always humor potential. Partner games are really fun and I don't have too many of them.

A great partnership game that works much better than it seems like it would on paper. I like the creative element of the game, and it's fun to see how people's minds work.

The mains thing keeping it from rating higher with me are the play length, which is a tad too long, the scoring track, which is needlessly random (why not just have it decrease as you move on without other numbers thrown in), and the lack of variety in the cards you have to choose from.

I'm curious to see if the updated Asmodee version fixes any of these things.

A fine party game for people that know each other well. The original printing is preferred over the newer edition; the cards are much more interesting. Some great memories with this, from the time we secretly fixed the teams so that two "enemies" would have to be on a team together (they won!) to the aunt who would always play the rose to the father of the family friend who would come up with obscure stories relating unrelated cards, like "English" to a crayon drawing, and somehow matched his wife in the process. (Note - I've played this a lot before logging plays, so the count here is not accurate.)

This is a really fun game to play with couples, with the kids, or as a party game. It takes 5 minutes to learn and is really fun. It's neat to see how people think differently. If you play with couples, you can see which couples know each other the best, or you can split up and play with people you don't know and it's a good way to get to know them.

JTs and my copy have a different set of cards, so I guess different editions have completely different pics.

The game is fun, and is a nice change of pace after some more complicated games. It's interesting to see the reasoning between some of the choices made, and how people see things in different ways.

This is a really good game under the right condition. And the condition is you need 4-5 couples, hence the name. This game usually makes it to the table on the dinner nights where it happens to work out. I bought a second compatibility game so that we can have as many as eight couples. More couples doesn't slow the game down. Everyone selects and plays together. This is definitely an overlooked game. I always learn something about our friends or guests, it's a great ice breaker and its fun to watch the dynamics between the couples, young or seasoned.

兩人一組,題目隨便找人出或輪流出,依各自計分標誌腳下的數字出同樣多的牌(蓋著),同組的選好牌一起翻開,若是圖案相同位置也相同就+3分,圖案相同位置不同+2分,另外可使用暴氣裝置賭圖案位置都相同可以倍數暴分,先跑到終點就贏了。

My high rating comes from my personal situation. The game isn't the best out out there by far, but trying to guess your partner (or the other players) results in some amusing times and in-jokes for each game when certain cards are played at weird times.

We find it plays better as all vs all instead of teaming up.

We really like this game. Everyone plays simultaneously so there is no waiting for turns. Random pairings make it even more fun. We also bought a second copy so we could play with up to 12 people.

Pretty fun party game... light but can really get good with the right couples. Answers/matches ranging for bawdy to outright hilariuos... and then watching couples hash out why they made their choices and why their spouse should have chosen that particular card in stead.

Enjoyed it. Maybe ranking it a bit higher than I should simply based on how well it went. Was a good game to wind down a night. Played very fast. Little to no down time. My wife and I were very compatible, so that helped. $2 from DI, so very good value (03/21/08)


This should be a fun filler. Tommy and Doris feel that the cards are a bit dumb and outdated, and I tend to agree with them but this can be easily fixed with artscow.com

This might be somethign I actually give a try on there. (11/9/09)

Un mix entre Dixit et Kilucru.

On s'est trompé dans les règles, une seule personne peut doubler ses points par thème, ça l'a un peu brisé le déroulement de la partie alors Shaun a pas aimé ça.

Le système de points était pas super au point non plus.

Compatibility is a party/social game from the 1990s. It is good fun and most entertaining though one of the best parts is marvelling at how dated the 1990s photographs look.
