Silly Authors

No. of Players: 2+
Type of Game: written or spoken
What you need: pen & paper or nothing


To think of funny author names for book titles.

How to play

The first player thinks of a book title. It can be an actual book title, or a fictitious one. He tells this to the other players, who must then think of an appropriate author name. Players take turns providing the book title. This game is not scored, but if there is a sufficient number, players can vote on the funniest response. Alternatively, the title and author providers alternate round the players, so there is only one response for each suggested title.
