The fear that birds are watching you: Hyperurbanitis. To flush a public toilet with one’s foot: Funk-fluid-flex. In this word game, players invent words using their word cubes to fit these wacky definitions. Which one does the Wordmeister think works the best (or which makes her laugh the hardest?) It gets funny, and at times the words created border on inappropriate (which is why teens will love it), but it also encourages social commentary and wordsmithing. Makes for a great party game that both teens and adults will get a kick out of. (Out of the Box, $21.99)
