Mad Libs (originated in 1953) is a kind of word game where one player fills out blank spaces of a story which he/she doesn’t have any idea about. Player 2 would ask Player 1 to supply the words needed such as noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb and so on. After completing, Player 2 would read the whole story to Player 1. This game is usually humorous and nonsensical and is played during parties or past time.
