I just love this game. Brought for Christmas and met with groans from several members of my family, it swiftly won them over and became a new favourite. The premis is pretty simple, think call my bluff and you're there.
One gamer reads out the card - it could be a law (In Ohio it is illegal to tip your hat at what..?), initials (such as U.F.O. stands for what?), a real person (Peter Smith is famous for what?) etc and then all gamers must write down an answer - only the key here is not to write the correct answer but something that you hope others will think as correct. All the gamers answers are then read out by the question reader along with the correct answer and everyone has to guess which is the real answer.
If it sounds complex believe me its not. The real skill is in pegging your fellow contestants and coming up with bluffs that appeal to their idea of truth. Fantastic fun, even for those who initially groan at the thought of it.
