Does anyone remember Girl Talk?
I remember having late-night sleepovers, playing this game with my friends and thinking how marvelous it was. It was the most scandalous game, at the time, and I can't imagine what takes its place today.
A couple days ago, I was cleaning out my room, and I stumbled across this falling-apart cardboard box, heavily decorated with excited 90s pre-teens. Look at their outfits. Look at how excited they are. This game was amazing.
Then, I went rummaging inside to see what stunts one must perform in this game. The game goes through personal questions to crazy stunts, like calling boys of course. You could pick up Girl Talk Cards, which somehow match up with your personality or future, foretelling that you "love animals," "will become a doctor," or "knows what she wants." When I played this, I bought every word on those stupid pink triangles. The naivity of pre-adolesence. I guess simple pleasures aren't always so bad.
And, you can't forget the infamous zit stickers. I have so many packs left of them (we must have either been really daring or really wussy). Any ideas of what to do with them?
Did anyone else play any other silly board games?
(I was also a huge Dream Phone fan, by the way...)
