25) The nice twist on this one is that you pick the clues you are given from the numbers 1 through 20, so you have no one to blame but yourself if you pick hard clues.

16) In the past this game would have ranked must higher mainly because of nostalgic value. Alas, the last few times I have played I have had to admit that even with my shortened house rules, the game just drags. I still love the memories, but this one is not at the top of the list anymore.

11) Yes yes, the questions that come with the game are horrible, but so what, there are tons of good questions out there. This game brings back fond memories of hours and hours of practicing and competing in Academic Bowl tournaments in High School and College.

10) The grandfather of category games. The fun really is in coming up with outrageous answers rather than trying to win. I've been playing it since I was 15.

8) The ancestor of all the bluffing games. We used to play a game called Dictionary when I was a teenager which was basically home grown Balderdash. It was great fun and again, the laughingly funny fake answers were much more fun than winning.

3) I am fascinating by this game. The intricacy in picking the right story to tell is very involving. This game will be a favorite for many many years and I'm glad it won Spiel de Jahre, showing that pushing cubes doesn't have to be the key to winning.
