Just One*

Just One is a cooperative party game that combines elements of mystery and creativity. Players work together to guess as many words as possible, using unique clues provided by their teammates.

Gameplay Overview

  • Cooperative Play: Players work as a team to discover mystery words.
  • Clue Giving: Each player provides a clue for the word to be guessed, but identical clues are canceled, encouraging creativity.
  • Scoring System: The game is played over 13 cards, with the aim to score as close to 13 points as possible.
  • Penalty for Incorrect Answers: A wrong guess results in the loss of the current card and the top card of the deck, equating to a 2-point penalty.
  • Penalty for No Answer: Failing to provide an answer results in losing only the current card, a 1-point penalty.
  • Evolution of the Game: Originally named "We Are The Word" and published by Fun Consortium, it was later bought by Repos Production, who improved the components, added new words, and renamed the game to Just One.


Just One offers a unique twist on word-guessing games, promoting teamwork and individual creativity. The need for unique clues adds a challenging and enjoyable aspect to the game, making it an excellent choice for parties and social gatherings.
