Hi!

I saw a game in a shop a couple of months back and I've forgotten its name. The game involved finding the right word to fit a definition, and this would involve some lateral thinking. Look like a recent release. Anyone know the game I'm thinking of?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Jim

Can you provide any visuals such as box colours, icons, contents etc as they tend to be easier to aid possible recall of a game. Also which shop as they may have a website advertising new releases!

Balderdash? That's all I can think of...

Haven't seen inside the box. I remember it as white. :-)

Definitions would be something like "the club Mary was a member of", and the answer would be "Christmas pudding", i.e. there was always a twist that you had to see to get the right answer. Kind of like a cryptic crossword.

Nothing on the box back or front to indicate if definitions were on cards, if there was a scoring board or chips etc?

Regards
At a loss

The only game I've played along those lines is "The Da Vinci Game",

I don't understand how this is the right answer. I'm guessing the Mary in question is Mary, the mother of Jesus, but how do you get pudding from that clue?

When someone is in the pudding club, it means they are pregnant. So Mary was a member of the Christmas pudding club.

The game I was looking for was called Oddly Obvious, but looking at it online it is not the game I remember it being.

Thanks for all your help.
