Game 1: The Groucho Game
Game 2: Blackmail OR Balderdash!

Play The Groucho Game

GrouchosComedian Groucho Marx was often introduced as "the one, the only Groucho!" So what the blazes is happening here?! In 1994, a French photographer named Frédéric Brenner lured a bunch of Groucho look-alikes to a photo shoot in New York City. The resulting picture, entitled "Marxists," has appeared in The New York Times, and several books.

How to Play

The challenge: Can you find Jordan in this photo? Look at my current picture, and click the Groucho photo you think is me sixteen years ago. Whether your answer is right or wrong, you'll hear an audio comment from me, doing my best Groucho impression. Good luck and turn up your speakers!

And remember... "The world would not be in such a snarl, had Marx been Groucho instead of Karl" (Irving Berlin)
