It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

So, here we go with Letter W …

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. There are a lot of pencil puzzle books too, with all kinds of fun games to do inside.

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. So, to someone who likes word games, there are plenty to choose from.

Have fun being ‘wordy’!

    • Thanks, Ellen! Those Mad Libs are lots of fun. I still have some old books of them, but no one to play them with now. Yes, when the little ones are old enough to play it will be fun again. 🙂

  1. I love word games! Some of my childhood favorites were word ladders and how many words can you make out of a phrase. I also loved brainstorming games like, try to think of a word that starts with each letter of the alphabet and fits a theme… kind of like the A to Z Blogging Challenge! No wonder I love it so much!

    • Thanks, JEN! Yes, they are so much fun. You’ve reminded me of all these I haven’t done in awhile. Some are fun to do with others, but most I have to do on my own around here. I do have a few on my Kindle that are fun word games, too. 🙂
