DescriptionTry to guess the word in the most or least time.
BasicsThis is a game where there are teams. Each turn one or two on the team draws a phrase from a bag and then tries to get the rest of his team to say the phrase. He can say what he likes, but he can't use the key words in the phrase.Each one who plays must pick "long" or "short". For short, the goal is to make the least time. For long, the goal is to take the most time to get the word through. The points for short would be for speed and few clues, the points for long would be for the most clues. The rest of the team would not know if he was long or short while they guessed; it would be told to them once that was done. There would be a judge to say if the clues were fair and, for long, if they were good -- clues would not count if they were not on point, but they would count if they could be on point but the team missed it.
Variations:Have spies (all Cold Time Camp games should have spies, right?)Make each one who plays be a long or short but don't tell ere the game starts.Make each one do a long and a short.
