We've become very fond of this game. It saves us on long car rides, waits in line, boring afternoons with nothing to do, visiting in places we have to sit still & be quiet....Husband taught it to the FarmHands & until today I guess I never realized he plays it wrong.
He plays everything wrong. The first time we played Monopoly (shortly before/after we were married), I was setting up the board & he began dealing out the money & all the properties. When I asked him what he was doing he said, "This is how you play Monopoly." Huh? Ten of each denomination of bills and all the properties divided up between the players. I called him on it & he was shocked. Apparently his family has their own set of rules for most games. I've had to re-teach him how to play most board games.
I started B.B. Bumble Bee while I was sitting on the picnic table & the FarmHands were playing in the sand box & on the swing set. "Bee Bee Bumble Bee, I see something you don't see & the color is Orange!" Everyone started guessing & eventually someone said, "B.B.'s pants." I said yes, and Husband said, "That's not right! You have to say all the colors!" B.B. was wearing orange, tan, and blue pants covered in dinosaurs that imitated camouflage. I told him you only have to say one color otherwise it's not exactly a guessing game. He thought I was crazy, but played that way & it was much tougher than the normal games.
But I think B.B.'s got a better idea entirely. "Bee Bee Bumble Bee I see somefin' you don't see & da color is Mommy's shirt!"
BabyGirl guessed, "My underpants!" no matter what the color was. It wasn't funny the 173rd time she screamed it.
