$4 at Lucille Resale in Niles, IL, USA.

A writing prompt / madlib game aimed at kids. Pretty box. Oddly poorly arranged insert. All the components in great shape.

Literati Challenge 1 play, 7 participants, 3:16 time spent playing

I purchased this game and took it to a small gaming gettogether last fall, but it was shot down. I was determined to play it at the Gathering, puffinge or no. Well, right after Facts in Five, it hit the table.

The game is simple...five obscure-ish words are laid out on the table, worth 5 or 10 points each. Everyone gets 90 seconds to write a paragraph using as many of the words as possible (within some restrictions--like no list of words separated by commas). Go around reading them and scoring points for correct usage of the words.

And therein lies the rub. When someone says "and he climbed the ascerbic stairs," everyone wants to challenge, but the rules say only the first does so. That's OK. But then when the card is turned over to read the actual definition and the challenge is resolved, there are still six people to read. If any of them tried to bluff "ascerbic," they are exposed and ready for another quick challenge. I think something needs to be worked out with the challenge rules. Otherwise, it's great and people seemed to enjoy hearing the stories.

Panel of Experts wrote:

- Not really a game here, but it could be fun as a challenging activity (4)
- Not for me
- (check) Clearly not for everyone
- Nooooo

"Literally"

Soooo many people say "literally" when they actually mean "figuratively". This is the top of the list for me.

Lit geek. I'm not a book collector, but I am fascinated with old literature. I especially like Chekov and Ivan Bunin, Borges and Machado de Assis. Americans tend to ignore anything that isn't in print and popular, and I think that's a sad thing.

RR: Under Arts and Literature you have a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy microbradge. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that the badge itself is just the number 42. What the heck does that have to do with the books? It should be a big thumb or something cool like that.

D: (heavy sigh) 42 is the central joke in the series. It's the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

RR: What's the answer?

D: 42

RR: No it's not!

D: Yes it is!!

RR: No. I specifically don't remember anything about the number 42.

D: AAAAGGGHHHH! YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!

RR: Ok. Ok. Just calm down. I'll take your word for it.

New in shrink.

At this particular garage sale, the only person there was a little girl about 7 or 8 years old.

The sticker on Baffle Gab had $5 crossed out, then $3.

I didn't think it was right to haggle the price.

I handed her $3, which she promptly added to her purse.

On to a VV I found an unplayed copy Literati Challenge for $2. Cards are still wrapped. I thought this could make it to the table if all of the stars are aligned. Or it could be sold. Or I could add it to set of games for my son's preschool auction. Even with all of these possibilities I was close to leaving this behind. And I might have had it not been for...

Draw five cards with the kind of words you see on a high-school vocabulary test. You have 90 seconds to write a story using as many as possible, with bonuses for using all in once sentence or re-using the higher-valued words.

There's supposed to be a bluff/challenge mechanic when someone doesn't know the meaning of a word. Our play-testers all had high SAT scores, so it just became a creative sentence-building game with little variation in our scores.

It probably has some educational value for students with less-developed vocabularies. Ironically, as they learn new words they'll be making the kind of run-on sentences that lead to low grades for grammar.

Any phrase that includes the word literally. Especially because such phrases usually use a situation that could not possibly be literal like: I was literally beside my self when Bob broke our truce in Diplomacy. or I was literally out of my mind to agree to play Monopoly with my in-laws.
