How to Play the Wordsmiths Adult Game

This classic game allows everyone to use their heads. Its like a scrabble game, players should have the ability to think quickly. A good imagination can also be a key to win.

What you need:

  • Four or more players
  • Paper and Pen
  • Word definitions (prepared in advance)

How to play:

  • Before the party starts prepare a set of cards with definitions of unusual words. for example "leporine" adjective, like a rabbit or hare) or "vermiculation" (noun, condition of being infested or eaten by worms.
  • The first player will pick one of the cards and read it out loud. They also have to indicate if it's a noun, adjective or verb without revealing the definition.
  • Everyone can write a mock definition of their own.
    Even though you don't know the meaning of the word, you have to make a definition anyway.
