Play A Word Game – Chain Of Opposites

Player one starts by naming a word. Player two must come up with a word that has an opposite meaning to the word player one named. Player three then names a word opposite to the second word, and so on until someone is stumped. Using homophones can make this game very interesting. Here is an example:

Hot – Cold – Flu – Walked – Ran – Ended

Hot went to cold as opposites in temperature. Cold went to flu because they are different ailments. Flu became flew and the opposite was walked. Ran is the opposite of walked when referring to speed of locomotion. Ended can express an opposite relationship to ran when referring to an ad placement.
