Taboo – a word guessing party game that we friends always play whenever we have a get together. This happened on the New Year’s Eve too. I like word games, even though my vocabulary is very horrible and my usage of words , oh don’t ask me about that. I am well known to use incorrect words giving a scenario, a different meaning altogether. I sometimes scandalize myself. This game is like charades except that you can speak, but you should not use the listed/taboo words to make your team mates figure out the actual word. That is so difficult sometimes. For e.g. The word that your friends have to figure out is ‘FERRY’. Now you have to make sure that they get this word by explaining it to them, but it should not include the taboo words like ‘Carry’,’Boat’,’Harbour’,’Transport’ and ‘Sea’. Now try and see. And it is timed. That is the worst part. The max we could get in the time was 4 and the minimum was 1. We are yet to beat the record of another friend who ended up successfully communicating almost 8 words. She wasn’t there in the recent get together and she was glad that her record still holds good.
Saturday did start a little dull. Just one of those days, you know when everything seems dull , and I almost thought of cancelling the brunch I had earlier planned with friends and join them only for the movie Interstellar. But then at the last minute decided to go ahead and boy, was I glad. We went to this place called ‘Dice n Dine‘. A place where there are so many games that you can keep playing till your heart’s content along with some good food too. We ended up spending almost 3 hours there, not to mention a lot of food and money.
The first game one of our friend chose was ‘Cards Against Humanity‘. I never knew I had a wicked side to me, until that game. I won the first round with the most outrageous answers that I never would have thought of or said in real life. Wow! that was so much fun that I asked for a another game almost at the end when we had less time left to leave for the movie.
And then we chose something called ‘Say Anything’, basically to test how well you know your friends.
We almost chose ‘Game of Thrones’ but since it was a long game and we were running out of time we decided to forgo that.
And instead choose ‘Trivial Pursuit’. I am so bad in General Knowledge and was the least scorer in this. But among all the answers the one answer that stood out was, the tea that has the most antioxidants present is ‘not’ the green tea, but the ‘white’ tea. Hell, I didn’t even knew there was something called a white tea till then.
And I ended up having a big cup of ice-cream all by myself (sorry, I never share my chocolates or ice-creams) which made all of it much more sweeter.
What started out as a dull day ended up pretty good with lots of fun.
