Thanks to my friend Prabha, I got to know of this interesting boardgame called "Taboo!" :)
Lets say you had to talk about the word "Swimming Pool", without using the words water, jump, float, tank and amenity. Then how would you speak!?
If you speak any of those taboo words, you lose point!
And your team has to guess the word you are describing!

Its opposite to dumb-sherads! You are not allowed to act... Only speak, and speak without the taboo words! haha...!

Its so much fun game for 6-8 players...

The game remained in my memory and I started relating it to my life... In life also we have some taboo topics and words... And we circle around them to tell what we want to tell!
An awkward situation in real life, if looked at as a game can be so much fun!
e.g. next time you have to tell about your boyfriend or girlfriend to your parents, and you are... well, not allowed to use the words boyfriend or girlfriend! Then don't feel shy or awkward, take it as a game, and see how easy it is!

Its also a useful way to culture the language... Now a days some of us use the f word as if it is a punctuation mark in the English grammer! No need! Use quality words, live quality life....


p.s. do you like such posts...
p.p.s. drop some comments, your comments inspire me to write more!

I like the comparison of the board game with life. Makes all the 'sense' in the world.

Amazing Abhay. I really liked this post. We can use this game in real life too to speak meaningful words which hurts none. Thanks for the post abhay.
