The game costs Kshs 3300/– and price includes delivery to the CBD and most parts of Nairobi.

The game comes with 4 decks of cards (300 playing cards and 50 forbidden cards), one 50-second sandtimer, 1 pencil, a score sheet, and a rules leaflet.

The 50-50 Kenyan Board Game which was revised in 2018, contains 190 cards (3800 words) and is designed to be played with a board, tokens, and a playing dice. The Jamhuri Edition launched in December 2021, contains new and updated words, mixed with some words from the 50-50 Kenyan Board Game as well as a new twist with the introduction of the Forbidden Cards. How would you describe words like ‘Social Distance’, ‘Pandemic’, ‘Huduma Number’ or ‘1824’… in just 50 Seconds? 🙂 This edition has new words that you will not find in the original 50-50 Kenyan Board Game and has been designed to be played without a board. However, for a wholesome experience we would advise you to start with the original edition if you don’t have it already and then get the Jamhuri Edition. If you already have the original edition… Then knock yourself out and double your 50-50 experience!

No. The game has been designed to be played without a board, tokens or dice. Once you split yourself into teams, you may pick 2 cards and begin to describe to your teammates the words on the card within 50 seconds. This also makes it perfect for a quick 50-50 round, portable for roadtrips and so much more!

Each correct answer is worth 20 points.
