What part is it?" Get the lowdown on these well-known "OWTs" on the back of the cards, as well as some additional information about each one that debunks myths and gives due credence to the true tales.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Word Teasers - Old Wives' Tales:

      I think these are so fun! They start conversations and have really interesting facts about the origins of the wives' tales. I bought it because my younger son doesn't live timed games or trivia games (of course, because he is the youngest in the family), but we don't even play it as a competitive game, we just read the cards while we're waiting for our food at a restaurant, or waiting for anything! They are small enough to fit in my rather large purse so I pack them if I know we are going to have to wait for anything. The only down side is that my boys are teens, so it is a little bit easy for them. But the fun facts are definitely new to all of us!
