Has anyone ever played a gamed called “The Peculiar Game?” It sounds so cute and fun, but I’m not really sure how to play it. It basically is a little poem, but has the women add points and take away points for various reasons…I’m guessing that the woman with the most points at the end wins a prize…but I wasn’t sure if it was the person with the most or the least! Please let me know if anyone has played it. I can’t seem to find any information on the Internet about it besides the poem itself.

Thanks!

Cindy,

I hope this is what you are looking for. Good luck with the planning.

Bridal Shower Game Peculiar[/url] Game
This is a rather peculiar game
It really does not have a name
It’s simple to play as a game should be
You just do as you’re told, you see
So now if you’ll please give me your attention
We’ll put an end to this suspension
In the end, whoever scores the most
Will receive a prize of which to boast
Now since you’re all fashionable girls
Give yourself 5 if you have any pearls
You may add 3 if your toes peek out
And earrings will give you 2 more to shout
Score yourself 5 if you show any red
Add 6 more for a curl on your head
Now before you think you are going to win
Take away 2 for each safety pin
Give yourself 6 if your pants are tight
Add 1 for a scarf which is just about right
Add 5 more if your shoes are black
And take away 3 for a zipper in back
Now count all your buttons, for each you get 2
And take away 1 for each button that’s blue
Give yourself 5 if your heels are high
And why not take 10 for the green in your eye
10 more points for a rose on your clothes
Take away 5 if you forgot to wear hose
If your husband you kissed today – add 9
If you didn’t subtract 12 – you’re subject to fine
This is the end…there isn’t anymore
Who is the lucky lady with the highest score?
