Word games

I enjoy words. And some of the board games I enjoy most revolve around word choices or word play. They can be difficult to play in a mixed group of people - those who don't have the largest vocabulary or "punniness" or don't think quickly on their feet often find them very frustrating. But for the rest of us, these can be a great time.

Some of the word games I enjoy?

Apples to Apples
Catch Phrase
Last Word
(even Pictionary)

And then, of course, there's crosswords, word searches and other word puzzles. They entertain us, sharpen our minds and stretch our vocabularies and word skills so that we can always find just the right one as we write. Fun and informative - who knew?
