Each player writes a caption to a cartoon from New Yorker magazine. Whomever is "it" this turn guesses who wrote each one. Players score for guessing right and for fooling others. Like Balderdash, only much funnier!
from the publisher:
Based on The New Yorker’s popular Cartoon Caption Contest comes a game of immeasurable creativity, unmatched wit, and uproarious humor…and you are responsible for, well, most of it.
If a picture speaks a thousand words, surely you can come up with a few of your own in this hilarious game of ‘which player wrote which caption’. And don’t worry about not being funny. In a game like this, even the ‘bad’ captions are part of the fun!
