Balderdash

Surprisingly, the first time I ever played this game was last night. (Then again, I’m rarely in a situation where I’m in a large group of people who are all amendable to the idea of playing one game.) I’m not nearly as competitive as some, but I was disappointed because the only word I knew during the entire game was succubus. (Of course, I thought it was sort of a cop out, for me anyway, because I was a big mythology and folklore buff during high school.) I was just lucky that everyone else (except for some of the PhDs) thought it was a clown or some nectar fruit drink. I really need to start drilling myself on vocabulary again.

Here are some words that I guessed incorrectly. Do you know them?

frendulum
cicisbeo
biffin
perqueer
pushkin
quean
bhang
zugzwang
miche
keech

Note: The correct meanings of all the words can be found at dictionary.com except for frendulum, perqueer, and pushkin which can be found on Google instead.

Hint: In this case, pushkin is not referring to a person.
