GETTING WORDY WITH IT

Well, being a writer, I love words. Word games are a favorite way to work with words. One of the first word games I learned to play was Anagrams. You would draw from a pile of letter tiles, and try to make as many words from them as you could. You'd take turns with other players, drawing tiles until all the tiles were used. The person with the most formed words, won the game.

From that, I went on to crossword puzzles, and skeleton puzzles. Next up, I think, was word search games, then Scrabble and Boggle. Other games that make use of words, are Scattergories, Scrutinize, and the old favorites...Password, and Mad Libs.

Television game shows make use of words for the contestants to play the game. These are fun to watch and play along to at home. Some of these include, Jeopardy, $100,000 Pyramid, and Wheel of Fortune.

I still like to play all of these games, and now have fun on-line, playing Words With Friends. So, to someone who likes word games, there are plenty to choose from.

Have fun being 'wordy'!

  1. I love word games, too! My family would always take our Scrabble board with us on camping trips. Thank goodness, because one trip in particular it rained constantly. We spent all day in our tent playing Scrabble! My dad's an editor, so he always won... I still love that game!

    1. Hi, Tui! Glad you found some fun to do on that rainy camping trip! The board games are great, and I like the books of pencil puzzle games, too. My problem is finding someone to play them with. Guess that's why I like the online games so much. Thanks for stopping by! :)
