This game works best for groups of around 4-8 players. If you have a larger group, split into smaller groups of around this size.
You will need one dictionary for each group and some pens and paper for each player.
One player, the 'picker', chooses an obscure word from the dictionary and announces it to the rest of the players (including how to spell the word). If any of the players know what the word means, pick another word until you have a word that no one knows.
Each player needs to come up with their own creative definition for what the word means, writes it on a piece of paper and gives it to the 'picker'. The 'picker' writes the real definition on his or her piece of paper.
Once all definitions have been submitted, the 'picker' reads out all the definitions and each player has to vote on which they believe is correct. The 'picker' does not vote as they know the true definition, and players are not allowed to vote for their own definition.
Players earn a point for each vote their definition receives. The picker receives 3 votes if no one selects the true definition.
Continue until everyone has had a few turns being the picker, keeping score as you go.
