#hashtag the game

Collecting followers

 

Two teams rival for followers, using their creativity and their affinity to Instagram. The game features 100 theme cards in four languages the rules, however, come in seven languages and 100 picture cards One card is drawn the rules do not tell if the cards are shuffled together or if you alternate to draw a theme and a picture card and the timer is turned over, after you have determined a first letter by turning the spinner.

Each team thinks up a suitable hashtag beginning with that letter, the language for that word can be any of your choice. Then you must access the Internet and call up the hashtag of each team on the social media service Instagram. The team that managed most postings for its hashtag scores one to five points depending on the number of postings. Image cards are treated similarly and are checked on correlations with images on Instagram - if the first nine lines of images appearing on Instagram show the topic of the picture card, the entered hashtag is valid and is checked for the number of postings. Again, the team with most postings for its hashtag scores the respective points. After ten rounds, your team win with most followers according to the backsides of the points markers your team collected. There is also a Flight Mode that can be used if there is no Internet access, you win the round either by being first to write down a hashtag or with most hashtags written down while the timer runs.

A game that not only demands Internet access, but for which an Instagram account is mandatory, and which otherwise is only a variant of a much-used standard mechanism.
