This game is great if you have a dictionary handy (or a smart phone). The “Picker” chooses an obscure or strange word from the dictionary and announces (and spells) it to the table. Make sure no one at the table knows the word! Then every player writes down a made up definition for the word, initials it, and hands it to the Picker. The Picker writes down the real definition to the word and puts it in the pile as well. The Picker reads all the definitions aloud and everyone votes for the phrase they believe is the correct definition. The person who wrote the definition that gets the most votes gets a point. If no one guesses the correct definition, the Picker also gets a point.
