Messed Up Game Description – March 14th, 2020


Sometimes my life feels like my game descriptions. Still fun though!

It’s another week, and another messed up game description!

This is a classic game that many of us grew up with. And for some people, their parents and potentially grandparents as well!

I went a little different with my word replacements today. The game could be a lot of things, so here is the plain text first line of the descriptions – no changes made!

Race your four game pieces from Start around the board to your Home in this Pachisi type game.

From the clues, a few of you can probably already make a guess as to the game. So today, I am limiting you to ONE GUESS ONLY! Not really, but made you look :p

Anyway, on the the rest of the game description:

By baseball over a birds from the fade deck and following its blow, players move their pieces around the game board, sneeze places with players, and rejoice recess’ pieces off the airplane and back to their Start position.

The text should read:

A classic dice game played with 5 dice. Each player’s turn consists of rolling the dice up to 3 times in hope of making 1 of 13 categories.

Did you get it? Alpal smashed it! The game it could also have been is Yacht, which I know a lot of people have played over Yahtzee as it’s Public Domain. Essentially the same game, but some different scoring rules.

So there you go – your little bit of trivia for the day 🙂 Good luck with today’s puzzle!
