The idea is simple. Someone asks for a part of speech: a verb, a noun, an adjective, or an adverb. We've included definitions and examples of the parts of speech in case you've forgotten. Players call out their ideas to fill in the blanks and in the end, you have a story reeling from one silly sentence to another until nothing makes sense. That's what you call a Mad Libs, the world's greatest word game. Players have been howling with friends or laughing all to themselves for over 35 years! 48 pages. The Best of Mad Libs contains 288 pages. Ages 8 and up.
