The Battle of the Sexes - it says it all really, doesn't it? Well, for those of you who haven't been one of the lucky ones to have played this game I guess I'd better tell you all a bit about it. It doesn't take a genius to work out the rules, unless of course you're one of the 'other' species - a male. The lads seemed to have problems understanding the simple rules and argued with us for ages before the game was allowed to commence. One word of warning - make sure that you are head strong before playing this game. If there's any way that the lads can cheat, they will. I guarantee it.
Basically it is a very simple concept - the team whose turn it is is read out a statement by the other team about their sex. For example, the girls would read to the lads a statement about how women think or act - it's generally related to sex/relationships in some way. The men then just have to say whether or not they think that this statement is true or false. (Arguments galore for this part - they argue that it's a setup...)
There are also other parts of the board that are a little more complex than that though. One is to try and guess a famous couple or a film (this is for both teams) and the other is a sort of quick fire round. The team who is playing must choose one of their own players and one of the other team's players to be involved with this task. Once chosen, they take it in turns to give answers to a question that is read out - 'farmyard noises' for example. The one that hesitates for more than three seconds loses and the winning team gains points.
All in all, this game is great fun and I would recommend it to liven up any party! Have fun!
