Guide Review - Malarky
In this party game, players try to fool their opponents into thinking that their answers to off-beat questions (Why are racquetballs blue?) are correct, while trying to ferret out the correct answer themselves. (It's the easiest color to see.) The rules include options for team play, Mega-Malarky, and Mini-Malarky.
It's definitely better to play with a group of natural storytellers, but the Mini-Malarky version makes the game accessible to just about anyone.
