Quelf, in the land of the farm!
We had been playing for an hour. I looked around the table and couldn't help but laugh.
My dear sweet husband was wearing a homeade snorkle.
My sister and her husband had to spin around 7 times with their eyes closed.
Everytime anyone spun a 4 on the die, my dad turned into a weeping willow tree and had hum sad movie tunes.
Then there was my mom. She had so many rules, she didn't know what to do. Each time anyone picked a card, she had to clap three times and mystically twirl her hands and say "Abracadabra". Every time a game piece moved she had to fill in the blank "Holy ____ Batman!"
I was fortunate to have no personal roolz cards, but due to my sore throat, whenever it was my turn, I had to perform the toast "To ancient times and distant music".
There is much more that went on. We woke up the next morning making our own sign language. My dad made up a new language....among many other goings on.
I can't even remember who won. That wasn't really all that important. We had a lot of fun. This is probably one of the whackiest, funnest games we've played in a long time. I can't wait to get a bunch of people together to play it again!
