About the game:

Bet you can't find just one! (Well, you better hope so, because otherwise you probably aren't going to win Just One.)

Just One is a cooperative party game in which you play together to discover as many mystery words as possible. Setup takes about 30 seconds (draw some cards, pass out some supplies, and go!). A complete game is played over 13 cards. One player is the Guesser, who doesn't know what the secret word is and must guess it based on the clues given. The other players are the Clue Givers. Each Clue Giver must independently write down a hint to help the Guesser find the magic word. Identical guesses are eliminated (just like in Scattegories!) so Clue Givers must be clever and creative. The goal of the game is to get score as close to 13 points as possible. Players score 1 point for a right answer, lose 2 points for a wrong answer, and lose 1 point for no answer. Right or wrong, though, there are plenty of rounds and plenty of opportunities to win. 

This is such a simple and effective theme that it's hard to believe no one came up with it before 2018. But it's like a Jackson Pollock painting - yes, you could have painted it. But you didn't... did you.
