Interactive list of questions from the thought-provoking to quirky encouraging in-person or virtual fun, discussion, and storytelling skills.
~FUN FRIDAY|ALWAYS WITH A BOOK~
Created by award-winning game creator Allen Wolf, YOU’RE PULLING MY LEG: JUNIOR (August 2020) lets you test your bluffing skills with completely new questions that range from thought-provoking to zany. We did something similarly with my father-in-law and teen daughters…and it was such fun to hear his responses, how they are different from the girls, combining multiple generations, and learning a little about each other, too. Plus, the laughs and shared memories will be something to always treasure.
“Knowing your audience, playing to that audience and selling your ideas are some pretty heavy things to find in a simple game, but that is just what testers reported witnessing in their children as they played this game over and over. Along the way you’ll be surprised how much you learn either about your own kids or about others.”
Here’s how it works:
Have you ever eaten too much pizza? Gotten gum stuck in your hair? Surprised a friend? You’ll laugh out loud as you and your friends and family try to fool each other with hilarious stories from your lives as you play this storytelling game. When you read a question from a card, the secret flip of the coin tells you if your answer should be true or made up.
When you hear a story, vote points on if you think a player is telling the truth or pulling your leg. You’ll win points if you’re right but lose them if you’re wrong. Think you can bluff your friends and family? Don’t let them fool you! Score enough points, and you win!
This game book features cards with over 600 questions and instructions on how to play this game in person or over a video call with two or more people. Also available as an ebook!
SO many fabulous educational benefits, including:
• Players learn to interact and get to know each other
• Players track reward
Develops Storytelling Skills
• Players create imaginative, compelling, and believable stories.
Promotes Positive Self-Esteem
• Players feel listened to and valued because of their life experiences
“Challenges Children to Understand What Makes an Interesting, Compelling and Believable Story.”
