Off the Wall Mad Libs #6: Off the Wall Mad Libsby Roger Price
Synopses & Reviews
"Mad Libs" "R" is a game for people who don't like games. It can be played by one, two, three, four, or forty.<P>Ridiculously Simple Directions<P>in this tablet you will find stories containing blank spaces where words are left out. One player, the Reader, selects one of these stories. The Reader does not tell anyone what the story is about. Instead he/she asks the other players, the Writers, to give him/her words. These words are used to fill in the blank spaces in the story.<P>To Play<P>The Reader asks each Writer in turn to call out a word. This word will be an adjective or a noun or whatever the space calls for. He/She then writes the words in the blank spaces in the story. After all the spaces are filled in, the result is a Mad Lib.<P>The Reader then reads the completed Mad Lib to the other players. They will hear that they have written a story that is fantastic, screamingly funny, shocking, silly, crazy, or lust plain dumb — depending upon which words each Writer called out.<P>In case you've forgotten what adjectives, adverbs, nouns, and verbs are, here is a quick review: <P>An Adjective describes something or somebody. Lumpy, soft, ugly, messy, and short are adjectives.<P>An Adverb tells how something is done. It modifies a verb and usually ends in "ly." Modestly, stupidly, greedily, and carefully are adverbs.<P>A Noun is the name of a person, place, or thing. Sidewalk, umbrella, bridle, bathtub, and nose are nouns.
The idea is simple. Someone asks for a part of speech: a verb, a noun, an adjective, or an adverb. We've included definitions and examples of the parts of speech in case you've forgotten. Players call out their ideas to fill in the blanks and in the end, you have a story reeling from one silly sentence to another until nothing makes sense. That's what you call a Mad Lib®, the world's greatest word game. Players have been howling with friends or laughing all to themselves for over 35 years!
Now that you know what Mad Libs® are, you're ready to play Off-The-Wall Mad Libs®. From "Paul Revere" and "Albert Einstein" to "Little Red Riding Hood" and "The Three Little Pigs" this zany group of Mad Libs ® will make you the hit of the party.
