      Comments about Discovery Bay Games Origins of Expressions:

      I bring Origins along to parties or family gatherings. The game is fun for a crowd because everyone has a chance to participate, and it doesn't require any obscure trivia knowledge. Instead, you get to be creative and come up with your own story for where a phrase originated. The game uses the Balderdash bluffing model, where everyone guesses which story is true.
