I am going on a spaceship, and I am bringing a...

Postby clockworkmonk » Mon Feb 07, 2011 3:11 pm UTC

Simple game really, especially if you are familiar with the Pyramids game, Mondo

The game goes like this, one person takes the role of the keeper, who creates a rule that all things to be brought on the spaceship must follow. The rule can be anything as long as it deals only with the word. The keeper then presents a word following the rule, then the other players present words that the keeper explains whether or not it follows the rule.

players may also attempt to guess the rule. Whoever guesses the rule makes up the next one.

To get started,

I am going on a spaceship and I am bringing a bone.

rapper, cjdrum, LucasBrown, XKCD, and forum are not allowed on my spaceship.

A boat is allowed, however.

As is clear with rapper, the rule is not an even number of letters.

Looks more like the vowels and consonants have to be exactly equal. Bringing a teapot, a bauble and a cottage pie should do the trick.

You can bring a mum and a mom on board, but none of the others are allowed!
