I love playing catchphrase! If you haven't played it before, it's like charades. You play in teams and try and get your team to guess words and phrases by giving them verbal clues. It's fast, loud, and hysterical.

What I like most about it, though, is that you really see peoples true colors. Especially where wine is involved. People either end up laughing until they cry or just plain mad --you've been warned.

We played tonight --sober-- for about two hours straight. And I just have to share some of the insane rounds. Well, the rated G ones anyway.

Clue: Spiderman.
Guess: Peter Pan!

Clue: Hi...
Guess: Bye!

Clue: (Girl points to her pierced earlobe.)
Guess: Ear hole!

Clue: I poke holes in my ex-husband.
Guess: Voodoo doll!

Clue: Only an idiot would order this at Burger King.
Guess: Veggie burger!

Clue: Two people coming together
Guess: (Wait, this one is not rated G)

I swear, it's just scary where minds will go when a clock is ticking!


  1. That's a favorite at our house, too.

  2. Have you ever played Balderdash? It's a little too brain intensive to do with wine at night but it's really good fun with creative/word buffs :)!!

  3. I've never played Balderdash, but I've played other games that require making up definitions. Definitely the sort of play I'm into.

    Too intense to combine with wine you say? I think that sounds like a challenge. :-D


Thanks for the comment!
