Game Night: Abstracts

  • March 3, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

From boardgamegeek.com (and the box):

What FOOD will help your team guess San Francisco? (Sourdough Bread or Rice-A-Roni are possibilities.) How about a MOVIE? (What's Up Doc? or a Dirty Harry film might work, but you can probably think of better ones.)

How about a SONG for 'Mickey Mantle'? A HOUSEHOLD ITEM for 'The Titanic'? Or AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHING for 'Marilyn Monroe'?

That's Abstracts, teams guessing famous people places, and things using loosely connected or abstract clues. It challenges the imagination in a fun and frenzied way.

    The game was challenging; perhaps too much so.
    I think we might have been able to travel around the world in 80 days before anyone figured out the right answers.

      Both those things were mentioned in the instructions, but not in any clear fashion. Bottom line is the game has potential, just needs a better set of rules.

      I agree, I liked the challenge of the game, and I think if we tinker with the rules a little, the game will move much faster and we'll have a better chance of guessing the answers.

    As much as this game sounds like fun, I need to catch up on schoolwork from my busy week last week.

      Looks like the snow is not going to be an issue. Game on :-)

    Front doors are in working condition now, no word on the buzzer yet. I'll send out the update on Sunday via email with any changes or updates.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
