#3 on Bethany's list:
This game, a previous Number One for me, is one of my personal favorites due to its exceptional ability as a laugh generator. It is a great creative writing exercise, and has even generated some poetry. This one is best played when everyone is tired and giddy. I've heard that this can be a boring game if you have the wrong people playing it, but I have never had any such problem with my family members.

This is just an example...

Suppose Riddle 1 reads:

"A box without hinges, key, or lid,
yet golden treasure inside is hid."

(This is from chapter V (Riddles in the Dark) of The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien.)

Of course we know the answer is: an egg! Now look at the boardgame link provided to this example.

Do you see why it's "Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?" This would be because chickens lay eggs -- thus clueing you in to the answer to the riddle -- but not being so obvious as to use a boardgame with the word "Egg" in its title!"

So the listed boardgames give some sort of clue -- but that clue might be the name of the boardgame, or it's theme, or some major factor in its gameplay, or its pieces, or even the box's cover art! (Can't make it TOO easy!)

Finally, the boardgame links and the riddles are in scrambled order! (Get it?)

So this Geeklist is a double-riddle!

First (or not) you try to solve the riddle, then you look at the linked boardgames to figure which link goes with which riddle!


Have fun and good luck!

After some good weeks, I thought this week was a dud. Managed to grab this one today for 2.25 at GW. Have wanted to try this game.

First, thanks for this. I never thought of how important my Dad was to me in game terms.

My Dad was a terrible comedian. His favorite joke being "Why do baby chick walk softly?"

Spoiler (click to reveal)
"Because they can't walk hardly...
He always claimed to have killed Vaudeville single handed.

He taught me Chess, Checkers and whenever I went to the bathroom during Monopoly he'd roll for me and I lost suddenly, no matter how far in front I was...the game was over. I never understood this until I had children.

On my birthday, a year before the very bad years to follow, he played "Why did the Chicken...?" There were 8 of us. His stuff was actually funny! Fortunately, I kept the notes. I was impressed by this man in his 80s, who was never really very funny with me, having such a "common man" touch of humor! I saw him differently after that. And for the time we had left, I so much more appreciated him as a man with a sense of humor. We laughed more together...
