When giving the clue for a Tweener, does the person give just ONE set of "bigger than a..., smaller than a....." ? They give it once and then just sit back and let people guess? Or can they give multiple sets of bigger/larger comparisons?

We played that you can only do it once, but then the clue-giver really doesn't get to give any further guidance. The rules seemed ambiguous.

We've always played that you can list off as many tweeners as you can think of.

With that kind of leeway you'd think it'd be easy, but people tend to lock up around 3 or 4.

We play that you can give several clues. I imagine that if it hit the table more frequently and as we got better, we'd up the ante and reduce the number of clues you could give.

This also fits with the other categories- you can keep giving clues until they guess it or you pass.

We play where multiple clues can be given, but i like the idea of just one clue. It would force more thought into the category and make it a little more challenging. We also have a problem where people are not using nouns to fill in the blanks. Example: Spam = It is bigger that WEIRD and smaller than MEAT. Don't know if anyone else has this issue...

The way I remember the rules "...a single well-worded clue..." would seem to be pretty clear that you only get one clue. But that's only my recollection. I'm too comfy to put on slippers and go out to the garage to check.

(I bet I get NO THUMBS for laziness)
