The Snakescast: Guess The Word


The other kind of party game

Party games come in two basic flavours: "who did what" games, and "guess the word" games. We talked the first kind back in season 1, and this week we're talking about the second kind. If you're looking at a card with a word printed on it, and you need to get somebody to guess what that word is, but you're not allowed to tell them, you're playing one of dozens of different "guess the word" games. How can such a simple concept stay fresh after so many games have been built around it?
