"pull out the big guns"?
The teams are girls against boys, naturally.
Every player has 5-7 slips of paper.
On each, they may write ANYTHING.
The game begins when all slips of paper are folded in half and placed in a bowl.
The FIRST ROUND consists of describing whatever is written until you team members guess.
You have 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds the next player, from the opposing team repeats the above.
Until all slips have been guessed.
One point per correct guess.
The SECOND ROUND uses the same slips with the same things written.
Only this time only 3 words may be used to describe them.
THIRD ROUND only one word.
FOURTH and FINAL ROUND no words, (or noises) only actions.
By now, the players are familiar with what is written on the slips of paper.
What ensues is hilarious beyond words. ;)
It is "That Cool Game", term coined by my mom.
Just add friends, family and a Sunday evening.
