Clumps Clumps, n. A game in which questions are asked for the purpose of enabling the questioners to discover a word or thing previously selected by two persons who answer the questions; -- so called because the players take sides in two ``clumps'' or groups, the ``clump'' which guesses the word winning the game. [1913 Webster]
