How to play
Players sit in a circle and take turns asking the player to their left a question. Both the question and the answer can only use monosyllabic words. Simple YES or NO answers are not permitted. Answers must be longer than a single word and in the form of a full sentence. Any player who mistakenly uses a word with more than one syllable must drop out of the game. The last player left is the winner. For added fun, a short time limit can be set for answers.
This game is similar to Short Story.
The seven players sit in a circle.
|Alfonso:||What do you eat?|
|Brenon||I eat oats. Do you think I am a horse?|
|Carole||You look like a horse for sure. Are you too warm or too cold now?|
|Daisy:||I am just right, thank you. I think May is the best month. Do you?|
|Erwin||June is better. What do...|
Multiple players note Erwin's use of 'better' and he drops out.
|Famke:||I will say June is best too. Gwenn, do you like March?|
|Gwenn||March is too cold for me. Where do you go to get your hair cut?|
|Alfonso||I stay home and Famke cuts it for me. Why are...|
Alfonso drops out for using 'Famke.'
|Brenon:||I go to Frank's Cuts on Third Street. Are you a rich gal?|
|Carole||I have no cash this month at all...|
And so on.
