Chuck posted about our fun visit on Saturday in “Unbecoming Levity :: Wise and Otherwise….”
We played a game “Wise and Otherwise” which he describes. In short, it’s like “Balderdash” and “Beyond Balderdash.” I was repeatedly impressed by my friends’ answers. Sometimes the most fun type of party games are the ones that are not focused on winning, or on moving pieces around a board, on building something or competing. Sometimes its best if the game just gives you occassion to make up silly junk and laugh a lot.
(Yes, I pulled out a win on Saturday, but having the game last a little longer is always more of a reward than winning was. The more “even” the players are in their scoring, the longer the game goes.)
Anyone know other games like that? Of course, “Once Upon A Time” is that sort of game as well, but since it’s not as structured you really need to be in a sharp, creative mood to come out with something good and have fun. What are some other games that let your creativity loose to produce laughs?Posted by James at July 12, 2004 5:39 PM
