“Yes, No or in the barrel? This comes to mind, but I don’t know from where or what the rest of the game was?”

Can anyone help? If so, please comment below.

Thanks!

    I was hoping you could tell me!

    It seems to me that my family played this game during long car trips in the 1960s and ’70s, or at least talked about it, but my brother and I don’t remember at all how the game was played.

    darn, I have been asking everyone for years and I thought you were going to give me the answer. Well, I will be checking back, just in case. ;-)

    This is how my family played this game. My mom taught it to me years ago! Yes, No, In the barrel is a game in which one player is a questioner and the other must decide ahead of time on only one of the 3 responses: yes, no, or in the barrel. They must give these responses without cracking up, which can be difficult! In the barrel is of course the most fun response. For example, Q: Where do you want to sleep tonight? A: In the barrel!

    Yes, No, in the Barrel or Grandma’s Britches

    That’s it! Thanks, Linda.

    Ha ha, interesting variation, Gonchat.
