Bought for a friend, but it looks like the copy we have, which is quite fun.

We bought this game as a gift for a friend who didn't have it yet, but assuming it's anything like the copy we have (and the photos look like it is), it should still be just as fun.
To play, each player is given a pencil and slips of paper, and the active player draws a card and rolls a die to see which category to play. There are words, initials, names of inventors, dates, movie titles, etc. (depending on which version of the game you have), and each player is then supposed to make up a definition of the word, plot synopsis for the movie title, event that happened on the date, etc. while the active player writes down the actual answer from the card. Then all the slips are handed to the active player and shuffled, and he or she reads them out. Everyone votes on which they think was the correct answer, and points are scored accordingly. It's great fun in coming up with some of the most out-there responses, because the actual response is almost always just as out-there or even more so. It's even funnier when someone in the group actually knows the correct definition of the word or the synopsis of the movie title, if only for the responses of "How do you know THAT?" from everyone else. We've found at least one movie from MST3K on there, for instance.
