No. Once you have drawn a body part, you don't draw it again. You just have to wait until you throw a number you havn't already thrown

Don't know what it was called. The one you were thinking of, you draw a pair of feet (not neccessarily a beetle, but so much the funnier if you do), the fold the paper so just the ankles are showing. Next person draws the legs, folds the paper and so on.

Close, but no gorilla

Isn't that what I said? :P :wink:
So what was the point of it?
If you drew the legs in a certain way, you could end up with some kind of crazy Escher-esque picture.

Give a kid a pencil nowadays, and they'd probably try to stab you with it... :?

The youth of today...even the politicians have noticed how bad they're getting!

There was also Boy Girl, where you all wrote down some categories, like boy, girl, colour, plant, animal etc., and then you'd pick a letter at random from a book, then you'd all write down a boy's name, a girl's name, a kind of plant, a kinf of animal etc. beginning with that letter. When you were all finished (or stuck) you'd go round and say what you put, and you'd get a point if no-one else had your answer, or something, and the one with the most points at the end was the winner.

I think the problem is that kids these days have huge egos and believe that their needs far surpass those of anyone else, hence their selfish behaviour (perhaps not all, but plenty I come across). Couldn't imagine them playing paper games for hours on end 'just for fun' in any case!!

Ok, Grumpy has finished her moan now :?

Just what we need - another politician :roll:

If you need any ideas on policies (especially concerning modern yoof), I'm sure we'll have some ideas for you... :twisted:

I had agame that was in pad form,and each page had a story on it with random words replaced with the instruction to add a verb, adjective or noun in strategic places.
You would be asked to give a word for each blank, until the entire story had been "reconstructed" with "hilarious consequences!!!"[/quote]
