Billionaire Banshee is a game where everyone playing pretends they’re single and looking for a soul mate. There are two card piles: exciting Perks and questionable Quirks. The player whose turn it is grabs one card from each pile and the combination of traits listed makes up their potential lover.
Absolute Balderdash is the expanded second edition of Balderdash. Balderdash is based on bluffing your opponents into guessing your false definitions to obscure words. Absolute Balderdash adds several new categories to the mix: Movies (make up a plot), Dates (say what happened on it), People (say what the person did), and Initials (make up what they stand for). The real answers are often even more outrageous than the bluffs, so the game offers plenty of laughs.
Balduin, the house ghost, found an old camera in the castle cellar. Immediately he photographed everything that he loves to make disappear when he is haunting – including himself, of course. Unfortunately, the enchanted camera takes many photos in the wrong colors. Sometimes the green bottle is white, at other times it’s blue. Looking at the photos, Balduin doesn’t really remember any more what he wanted to make disappear next. Can you help him with his haunting and quickly name the right item, or even make it disappear by yourself? If you grab the right items quickly, you have a good chance of winning…
You won’t get bored with this game! Each Kicker Card challenge makes every round unique! In addition, players get to “police” other players and give them an unwanted letter score if they “slip up.” Seasoned players of 8 or even 9 at a table will have this game over in 45 minutes or less! Once there’s a D-O-N-K-E-Y in the game, the players start dropping like flies. There may only be one champion, but everyone walks away a winner with this game! Absolutely as much fun to lose as it is to win!
Play begins with a judge, known as the “Card Czar”, choosing a black question or fill-in-the-blank card from the top of the deck and showing it to all players. Each player holds a hand of ten white answer cards at the beginning of each round, and passes a card (sometimes two) to the Card Czar, face-down, representing their answer to the question on the card. The card czar determines which answer card(s) are funniest in the context of the question or fill-in-the-blank card. The player who submitted the chosen card(s) is given the question card to represent an “Awesome Point”, and then the player to the left of the new Card Czar becomes the new Czar for the next round. Play continues until the players agree to stop, at which point the player with the most Awesome Points is the winner.
