In CrossTalk, two teams are both trying to guess the same word. The guessing and second-guessing begins almost immediately – by both the guessers and the clue-givers
The round begins with both clue-givers writing a one-word clue to give their team in private. Then, clue-givers will alternate providing one-word public clues to everyone — but there is a catch! After your team gives a public clue, the other team — and only the other team — may attempt to guess the keyword. Clue-givers will need to use their private clue to provide context for the future. This will allow them to slip public clues by the other team.
