The Chameleon: Multi Award-Winning Board Game
Six players. One word each. Everyone sounded pretty convincing, but someone isn’t who they say they. That someone is The Chameleon.
In each round of The Chameleon, a secret word is selected from a Topic Card in the middle of the table. Everyone knows what the word is, except for the player with the Chameleon card… but which player is it? Using cunning, social deduction and some serious mob mentality, each player shouts out a related word to prove their innocence and tries to track down the imposter. Once everyone’s said their piece, the voting begins and the moment of truth arrives.
In order to successfully track down the guilty player and win the game, players will have to use all of their teamwork and witch-hunting skills. If you’re the Chameleon, however, the rules are much more simple. Don’t. Get. Caught.
A multi-award winning party game (‘Best Party Game’ at UK Games Expo, June 2017. ‘Seal of Excellence’ from Dice Tower Games, May 2017), created by the legendary inventor of Coup (Rikki Tahta) and crafted by Big Potato.
FInd the code
Shuffle a Chameleon Card into the Code Cards and hand them out. One of you is now the chameleon. Roll the dice and use your Code Card to find the secret coordinates. (If you’re the chameleon, just pretend.)
Blend in, don’t get caught!
These coordinates lead you to one of sixteen words on the Topic Card. Each player now says one word to prove that they know what the secret word is. Next, everyone votes on who they think they imposter was.
Spot the chameleon
If you voted for the wrong player, the chameleon gets away and wins the game. If you did manage to vote for the chameleon, they still have a chance to escape by guessing the secret word.

About the Startup

Big and Potatoish
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
After we invented our first game Linkee, we realised that a lot of games on the High Street were looking a bit old and tired. So we created Big Potato Games. It’s mission: to create, craft and curate unusual new games for the good folk of Britain and beyond to enjoy.
What makes your product special?
We make games that we’d happily shell out money for ourselves. We spend ages making them look good and giving them a distinctive tone of voice. Our games also have to stick to our strict rule of three — easy to learn, quick to play and seriously moreish.
What has been the best part of your experience?
It’s great being your own boss. If we believe in a game we just crack on and do it. It’s amazing hearing from people and how much they enjoy our games. It’s also really rewarding building a brand and knowing that the better we do, the more new potatoes we can hire and the economy gets a little helping hand along the way.
