[Fic•tion•aire: Person who tricks opponents into choosing
the wrong word definition in the dictionary game.]
You may know it as dictionary, fictionary, Balderdash… or even “Call my Bluff”, the classic British TV game show; but it could just as easily be called “the making up lies to fool your friends” game!
Fictionaire is a new quiz card game from Days of Wonder
that gives a fresh twist to this classic genre.
In Fictionaire, players make up a bogus definition or fake answer for a word or question asked by the game’s host, trying to trick him or her into believing that their answer is correct. To earn points, players either choose the right definition – or get someone to pick their answer. If a player bluffs someone into choosing the wrong answer, they earn a bonus point.
