I didn't care much for the Odyssey party/team rules where you say something before seeing a card, but it did give me an idea for a 2-player....game (not really a variant...).

The game is cooperative. Each player is the storyteller five times for a total of 10 turns and you go for a high score. The highest possible is
70.

Neither player has a hand. Each turn, the storyteller makes up a story without seeing any cards, and then six cards are flipped over from the deck and arranged. Both players (must?) vote for two cards that they think best match the description, and color matters: use the red peg for your 1st vote, and the green peg for your 2nd vote. Then players reveal their votes.

For a card where you both voted red, you get 4 points.
For a card where you both voted green, you get 3 points.
For a card where you both voted but the colors didn't match, you get 2 points.
For a card where only one player voted for it, you lose a point.

That's it....take it, leave it, or improve it

Wow, that actually sounds really good! Have you played this one yet? I'm curious to know how well it plays.

No, I haven't. So the numbers are probably off. Maybe I'll make the wife play it this week.
