I’ll admit it’s still fun to play board games, even if it’s with my parents and their friends. So what? If you don’t give into having fun that means the terrorists have won… Anyway, so I was playing Catchphrase with said group of people above and if you haven’t played the game before here’s a quick run down:
Basically it’s this little handheld device in which a person/place/thing/phrase appears and you have to have your teammates guess the word without saying the word or any part of the word in your clues. There’s also a timer in the form of an obnoxious yet anxiety producing beep that speeds up as the round goes on.
So it’s my turn and the word Batman appears, HOW EASY RIGHT? Except not for me… in my efforts to have my team succuessfully guess the word I gave the following clues:
Superhero, black outfit, friends with Robin, BRUCE WILLIS….
Rewind, I really wanted to communicate to my team the Batman’s real life persona which is actually Bruce Wayne, not the Die Hard actor Bruce Willis. There’s nothing worse then a group of 50 somethings staring at me like “oh poor Kim”
