How to play

This word game plays off of the classic knock-knock joke. The first player says "Knock-knock" and the second player, standing behind an imaginary door, answers "Who's there?" The first player gives a name and the second player has a certain amount of time to guess what pun the first player is thinking of by using that name.

Bea: Who's there?

Bea: Ima who?
Angelina: Ima real cold out here, let me in!
