Creationary

Creationary is a great game that alvin has recently acquired. It's like charades, except that you use LEGO to get people to guess your card on hand.

you also have a die that shows you which category to use in the card.

i totally forgot how much i loved LEGO until i tore open a new bag of LEGO parts that came along with the game. we went rabid over it.

alvin was painstakingly reading out the rules of play to me but i was far far away in my own little LEGO world, imagining 10,000 different things with all the nifty things i... i mean, we now have.

then we started to play - 30 minutes, see how many we are able to guess. it was then i realized that imagination is one thing, doing awesome permutations with what you have on hand is another. plus, it was a lazy sunday afternoon, and alvin and i were zonked from the night before (he had a scott pilgrim game party, i was at a teenage sleepover - SRSLY NOT HEALTHY FOR ADULTS).

well, here are our creations. try your hand at guessing what they are! hehehe.
