Description Edit | History

Make up a story explaining the origin of a phrase that will have other players convinced yours is correct. Each player votes for the story he or she believes is the real origin of the phrase. Players earn points by either writing a yarn good enough to fool the other players into voting for it or by guessing the correct origin among those written by others.
