Eat Poop, You Cat. (01.13.04 11:00:28)
We played a game called (for real, this is the name it goes by on the Internet) "Eat Poop, You Cat" at a party last week. This game is a combination of pictionary and telephone, sort of. Basically, players pass a sheet of paper around in a circle (or, n-gon), and take turns either drawing a picture based on a caption that's on the page, or writing a caption for a picture that's on the page. You only get to look at the last picture or caption, so the ideas diverge quickly.

I made scans of our game; it was pretty hard to scan with our document feeder scanner at work, because the papers are all folded up to implement the reduced visibility rules. Also, we were inconsistent about flipping versus flipping and rotating, so some of the 2nd pages come out upside-down. Still, a fun read.

How weird, I just played that game for the first time at a party a couple of weeks ago (though no one called it Eat Poop, You Cat), and I actually saved the one that started with my sentence in order to mail it to you, which I haven't done yet, but I will, and then you will see why. Of course, now it will be a much less perplexing mailing since now you'll understand why it exists, drat...

Don't you have more important things to do with your time than scan in 19 Eat Poop, You Cat games? CS Research for instance.

Also, we have a document feeder/scanner so it only took a few minutes.

So you don't have to feed the documents yourself? Or ever hire a document sitter when you go out on trips?

No, in fact, it even scans their undersides. But you need to flip them over every once in a while, unless you can teach them the "roll over" trick.

Check out my friends' site: http://www.invisible-city.com/

They have a bunch of games that re-use existing common game peices to play new games. Gameboards are either downloadable from the site and some use things like a map of the US.
