The "House Rules" of Your Favorite Games

Original image

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!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
