WRUP - What Are You Playing?

So it's the weekend! Classes are over, time to just sit down and relax right? Well not necessarily... This past weekend I went up to summer home in Jamestown, NY and although we were cooped up inside we got pretty active. My girlfriend Amanda showed this game to me a few weeks called Catch Phrase. It's a handheld game you pass around in a circle and you have say clues to teammates without giving away or saying the word on the screen. If you can't explain what the word is before the time is up you lose a point. First team to 7 wins! So change things up and make it more difficult we decided you had to act out the word on the screen. We choose sports but we didn't know there were so many thing associated with sports. Some of us had to act out push ups and lay ups while others had to act out dribbling and touchdowns. There's tons of categories to choose from but having each other act out the words really got the blood flowing because you want to do it as fast as possible so you can hand the game off to the opponent in hopes they'll hold onto it when the buzzer goes off. Catch Phrase is a game for the whole family and a great way to get active while being indoors!
