A Game of Artifacts: What Was It Used For?

Post by RabidFox » Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:19 pm

I got this idea from Brain Quest. :idea:

This is how the game is played. First, you pick an object—Any object—from the modern, everyday world, and you pretend to be an archaeologist from the future. You are not supposed to know what the item was really used for, and what you do is make a post that describes how you think the object was used. The answer must be incorrect.

Here's an example from Brain Quest...

You are analysing a red Frisbee. You think it was used as a calendar.

Okay, now I will start things off.

You are analysing a remote control for a television set. You think it was used as a complicated calculator. :?:

Now it's the next poster's turn. :arrow:

You are making study of an old broom, discerning it to be

a massive paintbrush for giant murals.

You find a hockey stick. You think that it was a weapon.

Upon study of an ancient desk fan, you conclude it was a personal underwater travel contraption.

You analyze a flowerpot, and hypothesize that it was a mold used for fashioning very large candles.
This is my signature.

It is a very good signature.

Thorough inspection of the lid to a cooking pot leads you to conclude that it was a shield.
Kings get assassinated. Castles all crumble. Forever lives the legend of a poet who was humble.

You find an XBox One, and decide that it was used for making pancakes.
