Ogden the board game
(NB: some of these may have appeared in earlier qotws)
In my last couple of years at school, we started amusing ourselves by making up games based on words we found amusing. Most of them were fairly basic - for example 'Beep vs Bong', a game for two players where one person says nothing but 'Beep' and the other says nothing but 'Bong', and the first to get bored is the loser. I played one game for over four hours.

But the crown of it all was 'Ogden the board game'. This was a monopoly-type game where you went round the board collecting 'thrungs' by completing tasks of one kind or another. These varied from the reasonably sensible ('tell a joke that *dull teacher* would find amusing') to the really quite fun ('in mime, be attacked by a household appliance'). The hardest task of all, though, was worth a million Thrungs and so well worth trying to win. When it came up, we would put in a great deal of effort, but no one ever succeeded. And that's why one day a teacher came into my room to find me straining to 'Turn into Barry Manilow'.

That I would pay to see! So I'm guessing that these were things like, 'invert your spleen' and so on?

Most of them were, in fact, physically possible
I wish I could remember more of them.

did you explain that one?

and what, more importantly, was the reaction?

He was kind of used to it
I was something of a class clown, in a very geeky and uncool way. I think we sat there pissing ourselves for a while and attempting to explain, until eventually he shook his head and left.

My task was...
...to hold in that laugh so that my workmates don't think I'm a complete loon.

Failed. 0 thrungs for me. 1 click for you.
