May 30, 2008
(Also known as "Bakushow" in the UK/EU) A unique, free-form gaming experience, LOL’s motto says it best: “If the game is boring, then you are boring.” LOL is played by one of the players making a challenge in writing to the others. The crazier the challenge, the more fun everyone will have. The person who delivered the challenge chooses an appropriate time limit, and everyone has to answer the challenge on their touch screen however they see fit – with words, pictures, or whatever comes to mind. The host reveals the answers, and everyone votes on a winner who will then decide on the challenge for the next round. Always different and a blast to play every time, LOL will, as its name implies, make everyone laugh out loud. [Agetec]
