Goes Both Ways is based on a family game the Novak’s created for game nights, where one would come up with two words that were connected by a middle word. The other players would have to figure out what word was missing between those two words. Later, this became an online sensation in different chat groups; as the Novak’s would spend hours hosting game nights on a weekly basis with friends from all around the world.
With numerous friends, family, and strangers asking us when they could get a copy of this game to play with others, we always laughed and said “soon.” So we bunkered down to make this a reality. After many long nights and several, several iterations, we arrived on the game you see today. And, so...Goes Both Ways was born.
This fast paced, tip of the tongue word game puts you on the hot seat to solve the missing word. What falls between Kanye and Virgina? What about Home and Away? One must be fast and strategic to win, because this game...Goes Both Ways!
The Goes Both Ways (GBW) hex cards incorporate both parts of the game in one! The first part of GBW is solving the color-coded green, blue, orange, and pink puzzle words, located on the perimeter of the hex card. The corresponding answers are also color-coded on the reverse side of the card.
When moving to the Rapid Fire Battle (RFB), the single middle word in the center of the hex card will be used to create word combinations in front of and after the middle white word. Just remember not to duplicate!
Four colored tokens denotes 4 teams or players. The tokens have point values ranging from 0, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 that players will place on the game board. Be sure to keep your token's point values hidden during game play!
The Team with the most points at the end of the game, wins the Game!
So you made it to the Rapid Fire Battle rounds. After battling head-to-head against the opponent of your choice, the RFB cards are rewarded to the winner of each round. RFB cards consist of four different options: Replace, Bonus, Remove, and Hazard.
The game board is where all the action happens. Here you will place your tokens on the game board. Be the team or player with the most points on the board at the end of the game and you are the winner! But beware, just because you have the most tokens on the board, does not make you the winner; it's all in the luck of the draw, that determines who will reign supreme!
