Know I can count on you – we are playing “the dictionary game” tonight, which is the game of Balderdash, played without an actual game and box. In case anyone doesn’t know the game: Players take turns being the leader of a round. The leader finds a word in the dictionary and makes sure no one knows the meaning of it. Then everyone makes up a definition that they think others will vote for, believing it is the true definition, and writes it on a piece of paper. The leader writes the real definition on a piece of paper. The leader reads the definitions and then everyone votes, trying to guess which is the real definition. You get points if people pick your fake definition and points if you pick the real definition. You also get a point if no one picks the real definition when you’re the leader.
Sooooo…my whole fam is here and we are playing the game for my mom’s birthday because she loves this game. I know it is going to be tricky to find words that no one knows the meaning of. I am starting this thread to ask for hard words, words that you know or know of that you think we might not know. If you want to tell us the meaning in the thread, please put it in spoiler boxes because I only want to know the meaning of one of the words (since I’m going to be playing the game). Thanks!
P.S. It just occurs to me – is this a game we could play on the board?
