The Left Lane
Proverbial game

Quick, linguists: "Sticks in the bundle" are what? "In unity there is" what?

You have 60 seconds. (See answer, end of this column.)

The $29.95 board game Proverbial Wisdom — available at Barnes & Noble (they have only one left, but more are on order), on Amazon.com and in toy stores — tests your ability to sketch, identify or choose the meaning or origins of a proverb and learn more about the phrases your mom always says.

You can see a demonstration of the game at proverbialwisdom.com.

For ages 10 and older. The White Plains, N.Y., company is also donating $1 from each sale to the American Red Cross Liberty Fund.

Answers: Sticks in the bundle are unbreakable. In unity, there is strength.
