Who would have thought a game could be named after a famous president riding an animal that is almost always mistaken for an alpaca?! Well, Big Potato Games have managed it and they have recently released the second edition to this family favourite, Obama Llama 2!
In this game, players will find themselves having to describe, act out and mime all sorts of rhymes, each as ridiculous as the next, with members of their team frantically trying to guess all three rhymes within 30 seconds. IF you’re lucky enough to gather three points together from your excellent rhyming explanations, then you will have the honour of flipping over cards in the middle of the table, with the aim of finding the matching rhyming couplets, for example, Donald Trump in a rubbish dump! The team with the most rhyming pairs at the end, wins!
Obama Llama 2, created by the Radio 1 DJ Matt Edmondson, in partnership with Big Potato Games, is a great follow on to the original Obama Llama. Bringing 500 new crazy rhymes to the table, players are sure to enjoy the same great gameplay while having some fresh new rhymes to contend with.

Obama Llama 2 Thoughts
I love Obama Llama!! It’s quirky, it’s weird and it gets non-board gaming folk to the table! Everyone I have played this with enjoys it. The second iteration of this game does exactly the same, with some great new rhymes that mix the game up a bit and keep people entertained. The fast-paced gameplay means no one is going to get bored and it is sure to keep you entertained for hours! The game also comes with everything you need to play, so you won’t find yourself rooting around for a pencil to keep score!
If you are tired of charades and want to jazz it up a bit, then this would be the ideal choice! You can not only describe the rhymes but you will also have acting cards where your quality mimes will be the key to your team’s success. Be warned though, as the 30 seconds you have to act out the three rhymes will fly by!
Should you Buy it?
Obama Llama 2 is perfect for all ages and will have everyone at a party engaged and playing along! If you need a game that is quick to learn, easy to play and one that will add great value to any party you host, then this is a game you need in your life!
So, whether it’s George Clooney pulling a mooney, King Kong playing ping pong or Michael Cane suffering a migraine, it is up to you to make sure your team know exactly what rhyme you’re trying to describe or act out. What are you waiting for!? Grab your teammates and go forth and rhyme!
