Playing Taboo

Mox posted another Taboo 'report' as her Facebook status.

From Mox Racoma‘s Fb wall:

‘Word: Welfare

Clue: May ganito sa

U. S. pag walang work.

Me: TNT??’

dougspoitation: Our Next Contestant…

This reminds me of when the Jap Girls badmin group played charades.

One guy sat down and motioned with his hands that he was eating.

The Guesser went, ‘Picnic.’

It was the right answer.

Guesser went, ‘Picnic, ayos!’

There were so many haha moments that I forget now, to the point of lying down on the sofa.  I asked R what was more tiring, badminton or Charades.

Charades, was the answer.

Anyway, let me tell you more about PLD’s ‘Family Feudish.’

Should one team come up with an answer that’s not the top answer, the other team can try to come up with a higher-ranked answer.  Whoever gets the higher-ranked answer, say, Team A, chooses to play or pass.

Should Team A choose to play, the team keeps on answering until it has three strikes, or all the answers.  If Team A did not come up with all the answers, Team B tries to come up with one answer.  Should Team B come up with a correct answer, then Team B wins the round.  If not, Team A wins the round.

Hilarious Party Games

Christmas is Battle of the Brainless time.

Cardhaus Games – Card & Board Games – Taboo Hasbro

Of all my Fb friends, Mox Racoma had the funniest status today:

‘While playing Taboo at a Christmas party:

[Clue]: a certain world-famous explorer.

Chato: …Columbus?

Me: Yes, yes!  First name?

Chato: CHARLES!!!

(ano daw?) Merry Christmas!!

Pael Gutierrez: Im [sic] sorry anong history ang tinuro sayo sa miriam=))))…

Me: with conviction pa yan!’

This reminds me of the clue ‘____ and Oates.’

Answer: Holen!

And Pictionary.

The group couldn’t guess the drawing of the word ‘lingerie.’

When the group asked the picturist what she was drawing, she replied, ‘Linggeree!’

And Trivial Pursuit.

AYL was asleep on a few chairs, when this question came up: How do Warner Brothers cartoons end?

She rose from the chair, said, ‘That’s all folks!’ which won them the game!

And Charades and Cranium, where everyone knows the obvious answer except the Guesser.

Also entertaining is a game that I played at 3ima’s birthday party this month. PLD had devised a game she called Family Feud, using Power Point.  The contestant needs to think like in Jeopardy!, but the process is Family Feudish.

One question was: 5 Best-selling Beatles songs.

Whoever comes up with the top answer, can opt to pass and play like Family Feud.

I wonder what’s on the agenda this New Year’s Eve.  Magic Sing?
