The "House Rules" of Your Favorite Games

Image credit: 

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Lindsey Harris and her husband threw an "odd pairings" party this Halloween, where guests came in costumes like Felix the Cat Stevens; Linus & Lucy Liu; Rand Paul Bunyan; Count von Count Dooku; Pamela Anderson Cooper; and Valley Girl, Interrupted. And they even played a few rounds of Split Decision, the game of improbable pairings!

Let's say between now and next October, you'll meet Lindsey and become someone with whom she likes to party. If she invited you to her next odd pairings party, what would your costume be?

2. Keeping with the board games theme, what are some "house rules" your family applied to your favorite games?

3. What's an example of something you've seen that you really wish you had on tape? (I'm talking about random happenings in real life, like the time your neighbor tried to parachute off his roof. Not The 1992 MTV Video Music Awards.)

4. By now you've all probably heard about Caitlin Burke solving a 27-letter Wheel of Fortune puzzle after only seeing one "L." (The answer was “I’ve got a good feeling about this.”) What's the craziest thing you've ever seen on a game show?

Have a great weekend!
