My friend recently played a card game she enjoyed and, of course, can't remember what it is called. A google search yielded unhelpful results. Maybe you can help?

Features:
--Card Game
--Players take turns guessing an unknown word or phrase
--The other players provide hints, one-by-one, as cryptically as possible
--The active player tries to guess the correct word or phrase with as few hints as possible. Each hint is worth one point.
--The player with the fewest point at the end of the game wins.

It sounds like an easy, fun game for playing with less hardcore geeks. As I need more of these, I'd appreciate help in identifying this one.

Thanks in advance, and happy guessing!

I'd try Chicken Caesar

it's nothing like that but it's a huge amount more fun than what you're describing

Clever Endeavor sounds similar, but you trying to gain points (and reach a finish line.)

There are lots of charade-type games about giving clues with various differences in rules/scoring...
