Trigger!/Déclic !? is a (French) party game testing your reaction and coordination abilities. The game is easy to learn and provides a vivid atmosphere with lots of laughter.
To prepare the game, a plastic disk is placed in the centre of the table and each player marks one of his hands "true" and the other "false" (or one can say that the right hand is "true" and the left hand is "false").
In a turn, a question is read out loud and all the players have to answer with "true" or "false" as fast as possible, using their hands.
For instance, if the answer is "true", one places his right hand on the plastic disk, as such creating a pile of hands on top of the disk. Please mind that the answer to the question might vary as a function of the number of players, the players itself, etc (see below). Mind that once you've put your hand, you cannot change your answer anymore.
Once all players have answered the question, i.e. have placed one of their hands on the pile of hands, scoring begins. The upper hand scores +1 point if its answer is correct or -1 point if its answer is incorrect.
The second hand (from the top) will score +2 if its answer is correct or -2 if its answer is incorrect, and so on. For instance, in a 8 player game, the lower hand (on the plastic disk) scores +8 points for a correct answer or -8 points for an incorrect answer.
Players really have to take risks to improve their score, answering quickly and so having their hand smashed.
To give you an idea of the questions, there are several types:
- Concerning the reader of the question (I am a man)
- Concerning the player (You have a dog)
- Concerning the environment/location (We play in a bar)
- General questions (King Kong was an ape)
The game ends as soon as a player has scored a specific number of points, e.g. 30 points in a 8 player game.
