My wife and our daughter (8 years old) and I played Creationary last Saturday. We had played a few games with the one-question mark (the easiest) cards and once (and once only) with the three-question mark (the hardest) cards. So we decided to use the two-question mark cards for this game.
We don’t really play for points – it’s more of an activity, and the thing with Creationary is that one usually gets obsessed with one’s creation...and thus the game breaks down as everyone is busy finishing…
In this game we were more or less tied (and tired) so decided to play one more round – and this round for all the marbles. Who would prevail?
– My wife went first and rolled: the natural world.
She picked up two grey bricks…and I immediately shouted: “Rock!” – and it really was! – point for me.
– My turn, I also rolled: the natural world.
I picked up two brown bricks and our daughter yelled “Turd!” – point for her. (I know, I know, but if I don’t teach her such words who will?)
At this point my wife accused my daughter and me of having studied the cards.
We vehemently (and truthfully) denied this.
– Our daughter’s turn, and she ALSO rolled: the natural world.
She picked up a lot of brown bricks and went to work.
I shouted out, “Squirrel!”
My wife shouted out, “Moose!”
(Somewhere (in Pottslyvania) Boris and Natasha smiled.)
I had been looking at our daughter’s creation from this angle:

I didn’t want to argue regarding the moosiness of this picture:
