What’s Yours Like?

September 27, 2010

If you're easily offended, you might want to rethink our friendship *shrug*

Admin note: How do you like the new place?! After Cheekie and Nikki Nick moved from Blogspot to WordPress, I couldn’t help but be a follower and join them. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled post…

This weekend my roommate and I had the pleasure of hosting Game Night (GN)–a tradition that is supposed to occur monthly but hasn’t been done since March (o_O). Game Night was instituted in our group of friends as an alternate to going out to clubs, since our city’s night life is tragic and boring. And since it’s start GN has been a big success. Lots of friends and friends of friends get together to eat, drink, be merry and extremely competitive. Good times are always had by all!!

Usually, we start each GN with a group game where everyone is forced encouraged to play before breaking off into smaller groups for more exclusive games like Spades and Dominoes, where not everyone is going to know how to play and play well (yall know how “we” do–everyone is NOT welcome to the table). I’m notoriously competitive and belligerent at Spades, so big group games allow me to show a nicer, less aggressive side. The big group game we usually start out with is Taboo or Guesstures. But this past GN we decided to play What’s Yours Like? (WYL). In WYL, one person is in the hot seat and everyone else is shown a “guess word” that they will have to describe what theirs is like for the person in the hot seat. The catch is to be creative and clever as not to make the guess word easy for the person in the hot seat to guess. So, if the guess word is car, people might describe theirs as “big and black” or “takes awhile to heat up” etc. As you can probably imagine, people (especially VSBs and VSSs) tend to get very euphemistic with their answers, especially when libations are flowing. It’s always hilarious and sometimes awkward to hear some of the descriptions.

As my Monday gift to you (to help curb any Case of the Mondays), I thought I’d share some of the guess word clues for my favorite rounds of this past GN. See if you can guess the word (answers at the bottom) based on the clues given. As a bonus, see if you can figure out which clues were given by The Champ (lol).

Guess Word #1

  • Mine is in transition
  • Mine has a decoration
  • People might think mine is disgusting
  • Mine is hairy
  • Mine is nice to look at
  • Mine is growing
  • Mine is filled with dead animals

Guess Word #2

  • Mine is black
  • Mine is empty
  • Mine is cold
  • Mine is bursting
  • Mine has a light
  • Mine is shared with some one else
  • Mine is racist… I mean mine is white

Guess Word #3

  • Mine are fuzzy
  • Mine are orange
  • Mine used to be white
  • Mine always end up on the floor
  • Mine are always rumbled
  • Mine have white stains (o_O)
  • Mine have brown stains (o____O)
  • I’m the only one who uses mine

Guess Word #4

  • Mine is fluffy
  • Mine is hard
  • Mine feels warm going down
  • Mine is better when melted
  • Mine is brown
  • Mine is white
  • I like to lick mine off first

What’s even funnier than hearing the “Mine is….” descriptions are hearing the guesses made by the person in the hot seat after hearing these descriptions. Sometimes the mind is taken straight to the gutter on the TWSS road when what’s being described is as simple as “birthday”.

So, if you haven’t already, I definitely recommend you experience the joys of GN–the fun is never ending and the laughs and memories are PRICELESS!! And playing WYL is a great way to find out which of your friends are complete idiots and/or pervs (LOL).

Happy Monday! Have a great week!

    OMG that game is hilarious! Can’t wait to play it with my friends. I am sure it gets very interesting, especially if there are some drinks involved 😉

    That game sounds hilarious!! I thought the first one was “hair” and got excited.. until the “filled with dead animals” part threw me.. but if you wore weave, (i.e. dead animals) then who was I to judge!?
    I wish i had cool friends like that, but alas I don’t..
    and I’m very excited that you switched over to WordPress! (and even more excited you didn’t call me nikki.. LOL!)
    I hope The Press treats you good..

    I’ve done some regular game nights too. The hilarious thing is our regular hostess buys budget games that nobody has heard of–like Partini. One category in Partini is 1 person is in the hot seat, they roll the dice that says “I am…” “I like…” “I wan’t…” etc. and everyone else has to write something about that person starting with the words on the dice. The results are hilarious, offensive, ignant, you name it, ESPECIALLY after drinks.

    Spades brings out thee WORST in me and I love it. Oh you say y’all have a 10-hand, b*tch? Oh…..ok.
