I sat in total confusion for about half an hour trying to come up with a good title for this article – and then…
“How about a game where you reach into a box and just feel around?”
“Is that a sex thing?”
“What? No. Of course not.”
That’s a conversation that real, living people spoke with total sincerity… probably. We’ve covered some real, weird, games in this board games retro corner of BoLS, but this one might go above and beyond the rest.
In Feeley Meeley (a title I’m scared to look up the origin for), players reach into a box and just feel around. But don’t worry, this isn’t just some glorified hole where who knows what’s on the other side. Feeley Meeley comes with a number of objects to put into the box.

Just in case you think Feeley Meeley has any sense of rhyme or reason, don’t worry, we’ll get rid of that right now.
