- Players place their post-its/stickers with the words on somewhere visible to other players only (not visible to themselves and players’ are not supposed to know their own taboo words)
- If post-its are not available, you can use A4 paper. Fold the paper in half and place it standing infront of each player – taboo words facing out.
