Board game review & gameplay of: 20 Second Showdown

Game design: Ben Drummond

  • 8/10
  • 10+
  • 5-20 players


Players are divided into two teams and one leader. The hourglass is put exactly at half time and the blue team starts!

Players have to perform (crazy) assignments, the first team that empties the hourglass loses that round.

The game consists of 3 rounds, the team with two victories, wins the game!


👍 This game is plug and play, almost no explanation needed.
👍 The hourglass is really cool
👍 There are lots of assignments and when playing with younger players you could sort some out

➖ The game needs a game master
➖ Sometimes you need to run around the room to do something, you must like that 


A copy of this game was provided to me by Speelgoed van het Jaar for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
