This is a great party game, but it requires a lot of creative thinking. Players come up with funny one-liners or stories when two nouns are randomly placed together with a question with two blanks for the nouns, such as "why is a blank better than a blank" or "why was the blank afraid of the blank." One judge each turn chooses the funniest/best two answers and the players that wrote them each score a point.

This is an incredibly fun--and incredibly funny--game. I just wish there were some blank cards included--I'd like to add some words of my own. Oh, and don't take the upper limit on the number of players seriously--we played with 10 and had no trouble.

I found that this game needs to be played by people that are witty. The more of a smartass you are, the better you will play. Needless to say, I really enjoy this game, but for those who are not so good with top of the head funny remarks, it may be simply too difficult.

-Upgraded from 8 to 9. I just spent over an hour and a half laughing my ass off without stopping for a break. One of the best times I can remember playing games.

A party game I actually like! The premise is excellent, although I think a house rule may be helpful. I'm not sure about submitting multiple answers, although I could live with that. Plays fast and there are a lot of laughs. Of course, the right group always helps.

This is a make-shtuff-up game, right along the lines of "Beyond Balderdash" and "Quip It!", which are two of my favourite party games. My comments for those 2 games pretty much apply to this one - I love the improvisational creative writing which requires some wittiness, but for others it is a painful and tedious exercise. With the right group, this is very good, light-hearted fun and a lot of laughs. I'm all about the laughs! Game design: 4/5 Personal enjoyment: 4.5/5 Total: 8.5/10

Simple and brilliant. It is true that you have to play with folk who have a certain mindset, but those are always the people I want to play with anyway.

Though it might be hard to find the right people, once you do this game can make you laugh till you pee. a creative ice breaker and a shoe-in for inside jokes-both before and afterwards.

I had (very) high expectations for this game befoe playing it. It lived up to those expectations.

First time playing was with thre other people; one or two of them didn't seem too excited after hearing the game description. But by the end of the first round (each of us had been the judge one time), we all wanted a second.

I think it got even more fun during the second round.

Both clever and also stupid-goofy answers are both highly appreciated.

You definitely need a funny group for this, but it is SO great when you have one. Leagues ahead of Apples to Apples. The idea behind the game is great and the rules are incredibly simple. One of the all-time greatest party games.

In every game like Apples to Apples or Balderdash, people eventually stop pursuing the object of the game and start trying to be funny instead. "Why Did the Chicken...?" is brilliant because being funny IS the object of the game.

I would rate "Why Did the Chicken...?" a 10, but it has 2 major drawbacks:

1) It is HARD to be funny about random nouns and questions. I really enjoy the challenge, and it's a great opportunity to exercise your creativity. But some people do not like being challenged in this way and will hate playing this kind of game.

2) Because it is hard, I'm not always in the mood to play it. I like an easy game every once in awhile too.
