How to play
This game is a variation of Tom Swifties. Players think of sentences that match dialogue to a speaker's first name, usually by way of a pun. Alternatively, one player passes out names to other players and asks them to provide appropriate dialogue. Or vice versa: a player passes out dialogue and asks players to imagine who spoke it by providing a name. Last names can also be used, as in: "Who wants to go sailing on my new yacht?" asked Tom Cruise.
A group of six players write the following six sentences using only male first names:
- "Could you pour mine to the rim?" asked Phil.
- "Wipe your feet at the door before you come in," requested Matt.
- "Four plus three plus two plus one equals ten," said Adam.
- "My car was stolen last week," said Carlos.
- "I scored the winning soccer goal with my forehead!" exclaimed Eddy.
- "Second time this week I cut myself shaving," complained Nick.
