This is a fun little game I tried to introduce before but it didn't take off because I tried to explain it 'in character'. The object is to tell the life story of Markus de Pomp, the self-proclaimed 'Most Fantastic Liar the World has ever seen', a man whose compulsion is to weave stories and great feats of all sorts to make himself seem like an amazing hero and adventurer. He's fought dragons and monsters of all sorts, wooed princesses solved ghastly murders that would baffle Holmes, and so on.

Basically he's Gildroy Lockheart without the shy self-effacing demeanor. ;)

It is the job of each player in turn to embroider the ever-expanding tale of Markus. How does it sound?


"Well, as I was saying, when I was just five months old I slew the great fogglemog of Bognor Regis while riding my pet turtle Alfie...."

Good game.

"I slew it using only a ballpoint pen, before running to Australia in only a day."

"Actually, Australia hadn't been invented yet, so I threw some lettuce and olives together and before you knew it--I had Australia!"

"Of course, the only lettuces and olives I could get at the time were in the mouth of the Enbilgerating Garfunkel of Orsonbay, which was around a rather ragged cliff..."

"But who better to scale a rather ragged cliff than the Blorfensee Hackzow, Lieutenant of the Eoiuyea, and father of Thermodynamics and heated toilets seats? But that's neither here nor there because . . ."

"it's somewhere in the middle, like the great fat man he was. He could knock down the cliff with one twinkling of his eyelash."

"A power which the great man had taught me many years ago. Except, of course I, being the genius master of things that I am, managed to learn how to knock down cliffs with but a half or "semi-twinkle" of my eyelash! But I digress..."

"Yes, so after I'd eliminated the cliffs from my path, I was free to seek out the Garfunkel, which, as Enbilgerating things go, was actually very Enbilgerating indeed..."

"because he Engliberated on a frequent basis to the sounds of music being played by trained marsupials. I personally have trained many marsupials to not only play music but perform open heart surgery. But then he got a job as a diagnostician, but that's off at a bit of a tangent. "

"Although, now that I come to think of it, the open heart surgery was fantastically done. I supervised the Enbilgerating Garfunkel on many an occasion, sometimes even while he was performing it on me."

It was around that time that I spontaneously combusted, but I never like to let a bit of minor immolation slow me down...

I then went to hell in a chamber-pot, for my honeymoon with Iohn doe, and climbed out via a leg of mutton and 300,000 pots of earl grey tea...

That's when I realised that I'd accidentally ingested a hitherto-fore unthinkable amount of Ayahuasca, the peruvian spirit vine, and was soon to begin tripping balls...
