The Letter W

Today’s post is one that I’m looking forward to because it is going to be something I consider great fun.

Word Game Letters

W’s choice is WORDPLAY – something that I enjoy in many different forms and something I can link back to as very fond childhood memories with my grandfather when we used to play ‘initials.’ The wordplay game didn’t come with a title and I don’t even know if we ever officially gave it one, but that is what the game involved, initials.

My grandfather would start telling me something, get to a point in his conversation and then instead of completing the thought, he would provide me with initials of the phrase to follow and I would have to figure out what the individual words were based on their initials, the letter the words started with.
Yep, I was groomed for wordplay!

Word Game Shopping

From there, I graduated to more standard forms of wordplay, crosswords, anagrams, cryptograms, and the like.
Of course there were wordplay board games that had me captivated for hours and hours as well – Scrabble, Boggle, Perkwacky (remember that one? It was one of my favorites).

Digital Word Games

And now, I go in big for the digitized versions…my new favorite is Word Hero.

So, next time you try and figure out if:

they’re there, near their room, or

which witch is which or even if

you wonder which one won the challenge

Just sit back and have fun…enjoying the wordplay!
