Play A Describing Game – Adjectives

This is a game of describing words. Player one names an adjective (green for example). Other players must name objects that could be described by that adjective (grass would work well for the above example).

You can keep score if you choose.

One way would be to reward the person who chooses adjectives that describe lots and lots of things. Points would be awarded for each noun named by other players. The competition could be between the players finding the nouns with a point awarded to each appropriate noun named by a player.

Advanced players may enjoy finding unusual adjectives that describe very few nouns.  In this version the lowest score would win.
