Real Simple Names "You're Pulling My Leg!" as a Best Game for Small Groups

Youngest game featured among classic titles

(Santa Monica, CA) – August 17, 2006 – In their August issue, Real Simple magazine names You’re Pulling My Leg! and You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior as one of the best games for small groups alongside Uno, Clue and Twister.  The article focuses on winning games and proclaims that You’re Pulling My Leg! “makes a terrific icebreaker and getting-to-know-you activity.”

You’re Pulling My Leg! is the only game included for small groups that was invented in this century.  You’re Pulling My Leg! was invented by filmmaker Allen Wolf in 2003 as a gift for two friends to help them get to know each other better.  It went on to win multiple awards and is now being distributed around the world.  Clue was invented in 1946, Twister in 1966 and Uno in 1971.

In an interview with New York 1, Real Simple editor Anne-Marie O’Neill said You’re Pulling My Leg! is a “great game.  It’s all about telling a story and figuring out if it’s true or false.”

Morning Star Games president Allen Wolf says “It is a tremendous honor to be included among such classic games.  It is wonderful to be included in such prestigious company.”

Wolf is the founder of Morning Star Games and is also an award-winning filmmaker.  He is the writer, director and producer of the upcoming feature film “In My Sleep” which goes into production in October.  Wolf is producing the film alongside Ralph Winter, blockbuster producer of the XMen movies and the upcoming sequel to Fantastic Four.  Wolf balances his time between creating games and creating movies.

To play You’re Pulling My Leg!, players take turns drawing cards and asking questions.  The secret roll of the die tells a player if the answer should be true or made up.  When players hear a story, they bet tokens on whether they think their friend is telling the truth or pulling their leg.  Players win tokens if you’re right but lose them if you’re wrong.  The first player to score 21 points wins.

Sample questions include “tell me about…something you learned about life from your mother.” “a time in your life you would repeat.”  “an animal you would be if you could.”
“a time when you felt loved.”  “anywhere you would live if you could” and “something you wish your parents would have done more of.”

You’re Pulling My Leg! and You’re Pulling My Leg! Junior have won the Toy of the Year Award from Creative Child Magazine, The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, iParenting Media Award, Adding Wisdom Award from Parent to Parent, National Parenting Publications Award and the Toy Man Seal of Approval and Award of Excellence.

You’re Pulling My Leg! is available in a tin lunchbox for $24.99 or in a box for $19.99.  Games can be purchased at specialty toy and game stores or on the web at
