Fictionary (the Game)

Fictionary is a parlor game suitable for about six to ten persons.   (The word "fictionary," as you will see if you search for it on the web, is also used simply for lists of amusing fictional words or fictional definitions.)  I learned this game from friends in Cambridge, Mass. in the late 1960's.   I would be interested in hearing from anyone with knowledge of the game's origins .   -- Paul Axel-Lute
