Title: Russian Spy Phrase Game
James Malory - December 7, 2009 03:18 AM (GMT)
We've all heard of or seen the silly old movies where spies communicate or identify themselves through obtuse phrases that no one would think to say out of hand. The idea is to make a game of it. To play, you take a noun, an action, and a time of day.
The seagull plays pool at high noon.
Your time doesn't have to be specific, and could be implied time of day like "twilight" or "dawn." Or, if you needed to be specific, it could even be a proper time. Try to be as silly as possible with the phrases, as that is what makes it fun. And if you want to be even sillier, throw in a stereotyped "comrade" at the end every now and then. :)
Let the gathering of spies commence!
