Blennophobia. Does it mean:
a. Fear of zits.
b. Fear of slime.
c. Fear of Ryan Seacrest.
d. Fear of fear itself.
e. [your definition here]
The correct answer was ‘E.’!* In this evening’s Figment Forum game, coming up with a clever, funny, or apt definition to an obscure or made-up word can win you an Advance Reader’s Copy of Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck.
Lindsay will give you a word, set a time limit to create your definition, and judge the results. There is no reward for knowing the real definition (Hello Google. Funny seeing you here), so spend your time and energy coming up with the most interesting fake definition you can. Each round will have a winner and points will be awarded for the first, second, and third place answers. These points will help you in the quest for Tiger’s Curse.
Tune in to the forums from 7:30-9:00 PM EST and join the game! You could win Prizes, Prizes, Prizes! (I said that like a used-car dealer, which is still my back-up back-up career.)
*The actual definition, though, was ‘B’.
