Rules - Imagine base set from Gamewright

Imagine rules

Imagine is similar to Pictionary or Activity, in that the player draws a phrase on a card, and he tries to use the included transparent cards in such a way that the others can guess the phrase.

In part, it's more helpful than just drawing, as the cards can help to build the pictures easily.
In part, it's more restrictive than just drawing, as the possibilities are limited by the cards.

In the end I think it balances out, you need to be creative to come up with ways to illustrate your phrase, but you don't have to be an artist the show your thoughts.

We used the Hungarian version, that uses Hungarian pop-culture references. While there were some phrases that were hard to guess, but all of them were possible to solve after a while.
There were some topics I didn't know about, so I had no chance of solving them, but I suppose others have the same problems with some other topics, so I think it works out.
However I feel that the game would run better if it wouldn't include recent references, especially niche dependent ones (for example recent cartoons).
