Holy cow, you guys, this has to be one of the posts I was most looking forward to writing, and it’s the last post of Holiday Goodies Week to boot, but I’ve run out of time! It’s Wednesday morning as I write this; we’re heading out the door for my in-laws’ and I need to get this up and scheduled before I go…
My friends Andrew and Jody have created a seriously awesome game. A game for grownups, like Pictionary or Trivial Pursuit, but even more raucous and fun. A word game, but not one that requires SAT words. It’s called Anomia, which is the fancy term for those times when a word’s on the tip of your tongue but you just.can’t.find.it. It’s all about categories, and speed. And it’s a huge hit: Anomia is a 2010 Mensa Select winner (that’s the big prize in the game world, awarded to the games the uber-players most enjoyed), and it was named Best Party Game of 2010 by the American Specialty Toy Retailing Association. Geekmom loved it, too.
Peeps, I gave this game as gifts last Christmas, to great acclaim. Anomia is addictive, and eye-opening, and ice-breaking. And Andrew and Jody have agreed to let me do their first-ever giveaway!
Simply leave a comment below by 10 AM EST on Wednesday, December 1, to be entered. I’ll use random.org to select a winner. And I guarantee, that winner will have a hard time deciding whether to use the prize as a gift, or keep it for him- or herself.
Well, that’s it, my lovelies. Holiday Goodies Week has come to an end. I hope you had as much fun making discoveries as I did. Now, on to the Big Holidays: latkes next week, and candied bacon in less than a month!
