Yamodo!

Maker - Bill Phelps

Yamodo!

Maker Story

Embrace Your Freckiliciousness

Ever wonder what a catapat looks like? Or what happens when something is maxtroded? Should we all be worried about catching wombatosis?

Have no fear, these nonsense words are meant to inspire us. That’s the whole idea behind Yamodo!, a quirky family game that lets you work your mad doodling skills and create zany definitions for made-up words. The inventor of Yamodo! is Bill Phelps, who used to pass around cocktail napkins with his wife and friends when they were out on the town. One person would draw something and write some accompanying text, the next person would add to both the drawing and the story, and so on. It wasn’t much of a leap from there to Yamodo!, where each game card starts you off with a nonsense word to illustrate and the beginnings of a doodle. The first player adds to the drawing and writes the first line of a made-up “definition” (so there’s no right or wrong answer). The next player adds a line and embellishes the picture, and before you know it, everyone’s laughing.

The beauty of Yamodo! is that it inspires creative, collaborative play for ages 8 and up, without any winners or losers. You can play for as short or as long as you like, at home or on the go. Choose Volume 1 for hanging out with family and friends, or scoop up the Good-To-Go version for some great laughs on the road.
