A word/trivia game, originally from 1964, first published by 3M in 1966. You randomly draw a card with five categories and five letters, then have five minutes to come up with a word for each category starting with each of the five letters. The cards can be a bit dated, but not nearly as bad as I expected. Interesting and sometimes very challenging categories.

The modern University Games reprint is updated, and has about a tenth of the charm of the original, being more of a pop culture trivia game (like we need more of those).

I like to collect the bookshelf series. I like the 3M better, but I have a few Avalon Hill like this one so I added it to the collection.

Games that got 5-9 hours of play include:

Titan -- Seven games, but almost all fast 2p games (and 1-2 long 2p game).
Quartermaster General -- 7 plays, + 2 games of Peleponessian War.
Machi Koro -- 6 plays, maybe five hours?
Triumph and Tragedy -- Right at five hours.
Puzzle Strike -- 9 games, probably 40/min game.
Colony -- 9 games @ 30 min/game, but I think I'll play this once more before new years. Maybe more.

Caution: May contain wargame like substance

Why I bought this: Thrift store purchase

Odds of getting played in the next 12 months: <1%

Other comments: I bought this because it was clearly never played and I liked the idea of it. But that was several years ago now. Time to say sayonara.

Status: Sale/trade pile

Found a 1971 printing of this 3M bookshelf game at Valu Thrift in Sun Ray mall, within sight of the headquarters of Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing. There was another copy, but it felt suspiciously light... I paid $1.99 for this.

Hey, member when we used to do top 5 lists? Wasn't that great?

Unless we get something better, I'll take the top 5 things you did as a child when you got bored. Responses preferred of when your parents kicked you off some mind rotting activity (like video games) to go play outside or do something else that resembled productivity.

Yep. You know it's getting rough when you buy a game just for the replacement parts notice inside. I hadn't seen a pink colored one before in any of my previous FiF purchases, Game box is in rough shape and not even close to being complete, but for $.99 I wasn't complaining. GW.

Got the version pictured of Facts in Five for $4.09 at SVdP in GB, WI today. I have an AH copy, so this is an adjunct copy. Box is a bit rough, but it includes the AH rules, too. There was an AH copy on the shelf next to this, so I suspect someone was careless.

Sometimes I'm stuck in a final or something (Oh, the horror!), but whenever I can, I try to make it to Facts in 5 on Saturday night. The GM, John Corrado does an _incredible_ job running it, with cool and funny categories and anecdotes about the answers.

This year, the categories had a good mix of stuff that hit me (Comic Book Villains, US Presidential losers), stuff that I had no hope in (Rivers in Africa), and stuff that I felt stupid for not getting (Tarot card names- stupid Emperor- and Countries that touch exactly one country- Damn you Vatrican City!). Apparently I tied for 13th out of 100+ people, which while not in the top 6, is still pretty good.

It's such a fun time- especially in the new, larger classroom. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.
