Messed Up Game Description – February 22nd, 2020


Well, most of what I say is nonsense right? :p

I got asked some questions last week (where the game wasn’t guessed!) about the rules for these Messed Up Descriptions.

Short version – I am kind of making them up as I go along. I am trying to come up with a fair challenge, without making things too easy.

Basic rules are:

  1. Games are well known ‘mainstream’ games. The sort of board games you are asked if you play, or titles you have probably heard about your whole life. If this changes, I will give a clue on that puzzle.
  2. What words do I change? Mainly nouns, with some verbs and adjectives. I am trying to find the balance of actual description words to keep the challenge fair. What I won’t do is use a word that can be confused with a ‘normal’ description e.g. I won’t use a mechanic word like ‘drafting’ as a substitute word. I might substitute it though!
  3. If I change a word, I change all instances and forms of that words. So if I replace ‘Play’ (unlikely) with ‘Pineapple’, Pineapple will appear wherever Play did. Pineapples replaces Plays, and Pineappling replaces Playing.

I hope that helps! Anyway, onto this weeks description:

Players travel along the potatoes sometimes using plantations, which represent brush bell, that allow the player to signal closer to nirvana while the rats were slides into feigned.

Last Weeks Answer

Last Week’s Puzzle:

In Las Vegas, players try to be the educated reward on the brother of Las Vegas by building beds, camps, and colours. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what scissors the brother produces. Players collect these scissors (drains) – nation, sweater, quartz, toys or sweater – to build up their notebooks to get to 10 parcel scarecrows and win the game.

The text should read:

In Catan, players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Did you guess Catan? I know Alpal didn’t :p
