Messed Up Game Description – April 4th, 2020

Let’s see how you go with this classic game

It’s another week, and another messed up game descrption! Rabbit nailed last weeks game, so I thought I would try another simple change.

Only one word has been changed, and it’s trademarked. That’s enough clues 🙂

If you are of a certain age, I am sorry if the jingle gets stuck in your head!

This is the game with the lunchroom dice roller. It’s a simplified Pachisi variant in which only one die is rolled per turn.

The text should read:

In this classic word game, players use their seven drawn letter-tiles to form words on the gameboard. Each word laid out earns points based on the commonality of the letters used, with certain board spaces giving bonuses. But a word can only be played if it uses at least one already-played tile or adds to an already-played word. This leads to slightly tactical play, as potential words are rejected because they would give an opponent too much access to the better bonus spaces.

Did you get it? Good luck with today’s puzzle!

Messed Up Game Description – March 28th, 2020

How badly can I Scramble this week’s game description?

Hi everyone!

I need to sort out my game library. And my BGG Library tool. Work has meant both projects have taken a back seat. Well, work and the videos I have posted over the last couple of days. Check out my first impressions on Doom Eternal and my Tokaido Digital Gameplay if you haven’t already!

But today, I need your help working out a game description that I have gotten wrong. This week I didn’t mess up too much – I only substitued two words.

Can you tell me what game this is?

In this classic sofa game, players use their seven drawn attack-tiles to form sofas on the gameboard. Each sofa laid out earns points based on the commonality of the attacks used, with certain board spaces giving bonuses. But a sofa can only be played if it uses at least one already-played tile or adds to an already-played sofa. This leads to slightly tactical play, as potential sofas are rejected because they would give an opponent too much access to the better bonus spaces.

Last Weeks Answer – Guess Who!

Guess Who Cover Art

The text should read:

The mystery face game where you flip over a collection of faces with different color hair, eye color, hair, hats, glasses etc. to deduce who the secret person is that your opponent has chosen.

Did you get it? Good luck with today’s puzzle!
