A few weekends ago, we developed a game. Actually, it came to fruition organically over the course of three-plus hours of drinking. It’s based on movies and it’s called “Not Super ObviousA game where one person describes a movie in terms of their own personal commentary on the movie. More points are scored the less clues are required. There’s also a time system that hasn’t come into play, yet..”
The premise is simple: the point-manThe person in charge. Takes all blame and receives little-to-no credit. (or emcee, or dungeon master, or whatever you’d like to refer to him/her/it as) describes a movie while the participants attempt to guess said movie. Participants can chime in by buzzer or via round-robinTaking turns like gentlemen. but because we were drinking and in public, we decided the best format was to shout out the answers at the top of our lungs. The loudest to answer, obviously won the round. No score was kept.
So why, “Not Super ObviousA game where one person describes a movie in terms of their own personal commentary on the movie. More points are scored the less clues are required. There’s also a time system that hasn’t come into play, yet.?” Well, not to be obvious but the clues issued were obviously obfuscated. They seldom included character names or actors or any pertinent information that could actually clue you in. The clues, in effect, were clueless. I would give my internal commentary on the movie or describe a scene (that may or may not have actually taken place) or do a (terrible) impersonation. I think there were a couple of times that I performed a modern dance representation of a movie.
Allow me to confer some examples (some required more than one clue):
