With this the section of the Café appealing to those who like puzzles, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a word puzzle or entertainment suitable to present to a small group and which hopefully would engage and/or amuse all.

Many thanks in advance,

Neil

Bananagrams is a commercial word game that's lots of fun to play in groups.

Charades... anyone heard of that one!?!

What is interesting as a small party game is the original version of the ouiji board!

It was originally a psychology game so that friends could answer questions anonymously. Nothing to do with spirits, the devil or other such nonsense.
Im told it is still under trade mark to Martell and the only reason it has this spookey rep is the Exorsist film.

Balderdash is an outstanding game.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

It certainly is and is one of my favourite games!

I am grateful to all who responded and in the end, what I did was based on the game 'Call my bluff' with the audience guessing the definition of obscure words. This went down really well and caused much amusement. So much so I have been asked back and next time will be teaching the audience how to say the alphabet backwards!

How multi lingual are your spectators?
Try counting "up to / down from" ten but in alternating languages.
Try it yourself to see how difficult it is.

one
dos
three
cuatro
five...

adding another language is even harder!!
