As my number of followers slowly creeps up, I thought it might be fun to practice my writing skills with a good old-fashioned game of Taboo (the copyright on this game is nearly as old as I am)! For those of you unfamiliar with the game, they give you a word, and then you are supposed to describe that word without using the other words listed on the card. I have randomly selected a few cards, and am going to attempt to describe these words below. If you think you know the answer, let us know in the comments, and I’ll pop in and let you know once someone has guessed correctly!
