This is a game that’s really in tune with today’s social media generation! Find out if you are a megastar, celebrity, influencer, popular or a loser as you try to get the largest number of followers by choosing the hashtags with the most posts within the 10 rounds of the game. You can play as individuals or as a team. When the rounds are over, each person/team adds up the followers on its ranking cards and the winner is the one with most followers. To start the team game the players are divided into two teams.
The image and hashtag cards are shuffled together and put in a pile, face down; the hashtag marker goes into the ‘round 1’ slot. In an unusual twist, the team with the players who have the most Instagram followers starts. In each round, a card is taken from the Hashtag Card deck and everyone has to think what could be the highest scoring hashtag – we found it can be surprisingly difficult to think of something appropriate; it’s revealing to see the different ways in which people think! The winning hashtag (you do need an internet connection and ideally an Instagram account, although there are ways around this with a little ingenuity) will get the score token relevant to its Instagram post ranking. The round marker is moved forward and the game goes on. The game includes 200 hashtag cards, 30 score tokens, 2 whiteboards, 2 markers with eraser, 1 game board with a spinner, 1 round marking tracker and a 1 minute hourglass. A fun, fast-moving and thought-provoking game for players of 10+, perfect for our modern world.
