This is how it works...

Some friends and family might not know how the game of things works...

Everyone takes turns being the reader. The reader takes one of the cards. The card says something like "Things that you shouldn't laugh at." or "Things that are dirty." Everyone including the reader writes down the first thing that comes to their head when the card is read. You fold the paper twice, and pass it to the reader. The reader READS the papers after everyone is finished. Everyone except the reader then takes turns trying to guess who's paper is who's. You get a point for each guess you get right, and you go again. Get it wrong, and it's the next person's turn. Easy enough. Last person to be guessed gets a point. That's all there is to it. Before you write something down, be aware of who you are playing with.

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES! I just pulled out a few random cards and gave answers.

Things that you shouldn't laugh at.
Neck braces. It's a weakness I have.

Things you would like to do with chocolate.
Eat it. (Sometimes you will start playing with someone that refuses to get creative. Never play with them again.)

Things that make you go oooooh.
I think you get it now.

Now you know how to play Things.

!!!Here's an example from a real game!!!

Things you wouldn't want to clean.
My Grandpa's belly button.

I really had to help my Grandpa clean out his belly button one time. It was the weirdest experience of my life. He wakes me up at 7 in the morning as says, "Hey son, I need your help with something." I got out of bed and followed him to the bathroom. He stopped me at the door and said, "Wait a sec, I'll tell you when you can come in." I waited for about 30 seconds until he told me to come in. I opened the door, and there he was. Sitting on the toilet, half naked. I held cotton swabs for him while he cleaned out his navel. It was really weird.
