Name that Object...
In this writing game, players try to "name that object" with only a written physical description as clues.
Think of a common, ordinary item, then write its physical description (don't reveal its name or directly refer to its function or purpose). The other player(s) will read the description and guess what the object is.
Example - Smooth and spherical in shape, this object fits easily between two fingers. Brightly colored swirls blend into white, or transparent glass. Where there's one, you'll almost always find a whole bagful.
Popular in the toy world of days gone by, these small round objects are propelled across a flat surface using thumb and forefinger in a "flipping motion". With proper technique, an accurate aim and a straight shot, this harmless looking object becomes a lethal weapon for others of it's kind, knocking them out of bounds.
And so you play the game, with the last one left standing inside the circle declared the winner.
Can you name the object being described?
Then, it's your turn.
