#3387 - 06/09/00 11:11 AM Botticelli
Loc: lower upstate New York
Can anyone point me to the rules of the word game "Botticelli?"
It involves taking a word, making a pun on it, and having the next person pun on that (I think).
For example, borrowing from goodgold's thread:
Rodomontade? Isn't that a French dish on wheels? (i.e. roulade)
I've always wanted to know how to play this game, and have only heard references to it.

Loc: this too shall pass
what is it about this guy and his eponymous games? is it
all just because he played a shell game with the Medici
family? there is B for Botticelli, a great family travel
game (of which Pynchon had the characters in one of his
books playing a 'strip' version); there is Botticelli,
another quiz game where the name is used for scoring (sort
of like in H-O-R-S-E); and now a punning version, with
which I am not familiar.
but wait, college kids love to pun and probably play B for
Botticelli with all kinds of twisted rules.
anyway, here are a couple of links, one with the basic
family version and the second a transcript of a Swarthmore
radio call-in version; you be the judge.
