Every human, man or woman, at some point in their lives has had the joy of fielding off unwanted requests by interested parties while enjoying a night out with friends. Let’s be honest, getting hit on can be extremely flattering and exciting but it can also be annoying and completely uncalled for.
Hence why the Tyrannosaurus Rex game was created.
For this blog post I’m going to explain it from a woman’s point of view. Now, this isn’t a game you play with the shy gentleman who stops by your table and cordially introduces himself to you or the current eye candy you’re crushing on big time.
No, you save this gem for the slobby drunk loser who needs to grip his sweaty palm on the back of your chair just to stay upright. The guy whose breath screams hotdog eating contest winner, and whose saliva shots in your direction with every slurred word.
THAT is your perfect contestant.
This game requires two to play because you should always have backup, but it can be enjoyed by up to six!
The rules are simple. When said loser approaches you table like his shit don’t stink, slinging his alcohol induced anti-charm, someone in the group yells out ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex!’ then another whispers ‘if you don’t move then he can’t see us’ and everyone playing closes their eyes and freezes all movement. Whoever cracks up laughing first buys the next round of drinks.
Sure, it will undoubtedly result in your group getting called a few unimaginative adjectives by said guy, but the laughs are worth it and I guarantee he will dejectedly walk away leaving you to enjoy the rest of your night in peace.
This game can also be modified to work for ruthless sales associates, rude dinner guests and even your own children when their asking for money.
In my debut novel, Web of Deceit, my main character, Kalli, uses this technique often!
