This week we are playing a game called Bookish Balderdash with guest star Debbie Stanton. The rules of the game are as follows: -One person (the "Dasher") reads the synopsis of a book. -The other players make up what they think is the first line of the book. -After all players have submitted their first line to the Dasher, the Dasher mixes them up and adds the slip of paper with the real first line. -The Dasher reads the first lines out loud to the other players. -Each player picks which first line they think is the real one. -The Dasher reveals the real first line of the book. The points are given as follows: -1 point for every vote their answer earned. -2 points for correctly guessing the REAL answer. -3 points to the DASHER if no players guess the real answer. -3 points to any player who writes an answer very similar to the real answer. -As a bluff, you can vote for your own book but you will not earn a point for this vote.
