Try explaining that to a caveman

Postby Riakou » Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:09 am

This is an old favourite game of mine that is sometimes played by Gavin and Burnie on the Rooster Teeth Podcast and I thought I'd bring it here to play with all my fellow nations.
Feel free to play as many times as you like.

RULES:
You will be given something to explain by the AN, you shall then begin to explain is as though you are talking to a caveman, using references and words that you think are reasonably understandable to a caveman.
You shall then give your item for the next nation to explain, I'd advise to try to stick to items and concepts most people have knowledge about.

EXAMPLE:
I'll paraphrase the one from an RT Podcast for simplicity.
Explaining the twitter mute function.

Other people have devices that they put words into and the words go into the air, my device then takes the air and pulls the words back out and then I ignore them.


Your first word is

Money
