This is a great game!!
on 9 December 2002
It requires some skill however and perhaps is not suitable for younger teenagers. It revolves around a 'Call My Bluff' concept, with a twist, players have to write their own descriptions for what the words, people, films, laws,etc mean.
The game involves each player taking turns to be 'The Dasher', he or she picks a category, then reads out the word/person/film title on the card - he or she then writes the correct answer on his or her card and the rest of the players write plausible answers on their cards. The answers are all then read out by the The Dasher - the remaining players have to pick which one they think is the correct answer.
Obviously if you get it right - you get points and if someone thinks yours is the correct answer you get points too. The skill lies in coming up with answers that are in a similar style to those on the card, something which develops over time.
This is a game best played by at least four people but the more the merrier.
Film titles is one of the best categories as you have to come with the plot line for a film - and honestly you would not believe what my father comes up with!
Absolute Balderdash is a must for any family who has unlimited amounts of imagination and neat handwriting!!
