The game goes like this: one player looks through the Slang Dictionary and selects a word.

Amazingly, I woke up pretty early today, all things considered. By the time 9AM rolled around, even though I had only gotten about 4 hours of sleep… I was awake.

The rest of the night was like this – geeky word games in the dark. We came across such phrases as "Russian High," "Jersey Side of the Snatch Play," "To Open a Keg of Nails" and "Russian Salad Party." Fun times, fun times. :)

Ballsdurdash

I got invited over to Justin’s to play a game of Ballsdurdash. This is a game that my friends made up, involving the Slang Dictionary. Basically it’s like Balderdash, but with a twist. Each round, one person picks a word or phrase from this big Slang Dictionary (a really great book, incidentally) and announces it to everyone. The other players…
