My fam and I played taboo last night and came across this dispute. If the word is " sore" and the active player gets the guessers to guess the term "sore throat", would that get points for guessing the word OR would it be the players responsibility to continue with trying to get the guessers to only guess "sore".
My thought is that the player needs to be savvy enough to aim the guessers toward the one word as it is listed on the card but my fam didn't agree.
Another example is, if the word is "radio" and the player gets the team to guess the band "radio head", would the team get the points?
If you watch game shows with similar situations the RULE IS more is fine if the word or words are included but LESS is not correct. I dont think its really in the spirit to say you got the correct word but you said more so you don't get points. I say whole heartedly if the word or phrase is said regardless of extras that it is won.
