Can a giraffe fit in a phone booth? Does a sofa fit in a shopping cart? It all depends on how you size it up in this game of creative thinking and outrageous scenarios. Try to win a set of cards by fitting smaller things into bigger things - There's some juice in a pickle, in a supermarket, in a parking lot. Play the fourth word card to claim the set, unless one of your opponents can trump with a larger word. The player with the most sets at the end is the BIG winner!
We love games like In a Pickle that get the creative juices flowing. This is a great game to break out when you need to stretch your brain. See how outrageous you can get with the scenarios you create. At the same time, challenge yourself (and your opponents) to think outside the norm and picture scenes that might otherwise seem preposterous. The more you play, the more you will see that there's more inside a word than you might expect!

Who says size doesn't matter? When you play In A Pickle, size is all that matters. This game rewards creativity so it pays to plan ahead, building word cards from small to large all while keeping a running storyline. This added twist was a real favorite of our testers who found themselves creating wildly improbable sentences and loving each moment. We found that while size is critical, creativity was king.
