Split Second is a fast play game containing 500 questions split into 5 categories. The game tests players' ability to answer questions as quickly as possible. Players take turn to be the question master, who must spin the dial and ask one of the categories. The other players must write down their answers as fast as possible onto their spring-loaded game unit paddles and release them into the centre. The quickest correct answer wins a point.

Stack of cards are stored at the base of the electronic gaming unit
Think Words , awarded a Best New Toy Award at London Toy Fair this year, comes with an electronic gaming unit (takes 2 AA batteries), 36 double sides cards, each side with 2 questions, ie a total of 144 questions and an instruction leaflet. Players take turn to pick a card, ask a question, press the timer button in the middle of the gaming unit, and the next player must think of an answer that starts with a letter on the gaming unit. That player then press the letter down on the unit and reset the timer for the next player, who has to do exactly the same steps but choose a word that starts with a letter that has not been pressed down on the unit yet. Players are eliminated by choosing the wrong word or not coming up with a word within the time limit, and the last one standing wins the game.

It comes with 4 2-tier racks, 4 rack holders, 106 engraved plastictiles (1 to 13 in 4 different colours) and instruction leaflet. In order to win, players must place all of their tiles in sets from their rack onto the table. Sets can be made up of either 3 or 4 tiles of the same number, but each in a different colour, or 3 or more consecutive numbers which are of the same colour.
