The name Ta-BooYa is loosely based on the Chinese language. In Chinese, Ta Boo Ya can be translated to “he doesn’t want” or “he can’t have”, and Ta Ya means “he wants” or “he can have”. “Ta-BooYa” is two games in one. In the traditional game, the player describing the word or phrase can't use certain words or phrases in the process. If the rule is violated, “Ta-BooYa!” is proclaimed to remind that the players can’t have those clues. However, the reverse game involves the players receiving clues one at a time in order to guess the blank word or phrase.
