Tell me about a talent you wish you had. What about a time when you wanted something you couldn’t have? Tell me about an animal you would be if you could.

It’s a game, inside a book, and it’s how we play in the time of Covid!

Based on the original board games, You’re Pulling My Leg! and You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior are new books from award-winning game creator Allen Wolf that make it possible to play with friends in these times of social distancing. In person, with family or friends, or over video chat, You’re Pulling My Leg! lets you test your bluffing skills with completely new questions that range from thought-provoking to zany. 

You’re Pulling My Leg! is a game of hilarious stories—whether they’re true or not is up to the flip of the coin. Players who succeed at fooling their friends win points, while others gain points for correctly guessing if a story is true or false. You’ll be surprised how much you learn about other players or your family in a short amount of time.
