From the Fish/Robot/Missing Link
I love the game of Balderdash. It requires some slight intelligence on the players' part, and it's anyone's game. We're playing it tomorrow at a friend's house and I just can't keep from thinking about it. Perhaps I should turn my attention instead then to LieBrary. I don't watch Ellen and I don't watch Oprah, so it wasn't until I saw it mentioned on Jen Robinson's Book Page that I discovered what this was. Jen describes it as such:
It's like Balderdash, where you make up definitions for obscure words and people have to guess the right definition. In LieBrary, you are given the name and title of a book, and you make up a convincing first line. You get points if someone votes for your made-up line. The box, needless to say, looks like a book.I used to collect first lines of children's books. This year had an excellent cropping of them, and for a while there I was keeping track of my favorites. But am I right in saying that the creator of this game was Daryl Hannah? How out of the blue is that?
Thanks to Jen Robinson for the link.
