I came across this puff piece in the Chicago tribune. i remember playing a party game each player provided a definition for an obscure word and gained points if it was picked over the actual definition? Balderdash?

Daryl Hannah likes playing games
Some celebrities come out with a fragrance, fashion line or even a video game. Daryl Hannah? She prefers releasing board games.

Hannah -- who appeared in “Splash,” “Blade Runner” and “Kill Bill” -- is currently promoting her second board game, Liebrary, along with co-creator and fellow actress Hilary Shepard.

“We just like playing games,” said Hannah, a Chicago native, at the James Hotel on Thursday. “Whenever we’re like ‘We wish this game existed,’ we just end up making it.”

In Liebrary, players attempt to guess which is the actual first line to a famous book and which are the fake first lines written by other players. Hannah said they pitched the idea to companies over a decade ago but were repeatedly shot down.

“At that time, they were all like ‘Games need be on CD-ROM,’ ” Hannah said. “They weren’t interested in games you play with each other. Now with the economy being the way it is, game nights are real popular again. People are coming back to what really matters in life -- relating to family and friends.”

Hannah and Shepard will be appearing at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair at Navy Pier on Saturday.

Indeed! My wife, the book lover, owns Liebrary and we play occasionally. Daryl (and Hilary) also designed the game Love it or Hate It.

Luis wrote the article.

Cool. After her famous role as replicant, I wonder if she'd like Android.
