WORD GAMES WORD GAMES WORD GAMES!
For anyone who delighted in studying for the SAT Verbal section, is there anything better than word games?
If you haven’t played this game yet, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?! Seriously? Under a rock or something? Apples to Apples is the hilarious game of verbs and nouns. It’s easy to play, easy to learn, not so easy to win (which frustrates the more logical-minded of players). There can be no strategy! Just psychological analysis of your other players and making quick connections!
This game isn’t so much a word game as it is a “real estate” game. The object is to place your highest-point letters on the special spaces before your opponent can. Still, a good vocabulary can be your best asset in this game!
The new love of my life is Taboo!!! This hilarious game of circumlocutions had us screaming and weeping with laughter! I played it for the first time this past week and my team snatched a last-second victory from a near defeat in a down-to-the-wire throwdown! If you get a kick out of Apples to Apples, you gotta try Taboo!

Have you ever played Bananagrams? If not, you definitely should. It's probably my favorite word game.
I've always wanted to! I'll definitely have to pick some up and try them next game night!
I LOVE TABOO! I like to claim I am the world champion. But this is just not true. But I will still proclaim it.
It reminds me of playing my parents' ancient game of Password. So similar – and I *was* the world champion!
I love Taboo too!!! I always end up getting inappropriately loud while playing, haha. Apples to Apples is great too. Ever played Balderdash? another word-game favorite of mine
I'll have to check that one out! I love all these game recommendations! Have you heard of "Catchphrase"? I hear it's also along the same lines and really fun!
