What's For Dinner?
Make dinner time, family time!
Mind-stretching brain games and conversation starters. It's the perfect opportunity for sharing stories, building knowledge, strengthening character, and having fun!
Player one starts by saying any word that comes to mind. The remaining players must name a synonym for the first word.
To adapt this game to differing skill levels you may allow younger players to blur the lines regarding parts of speech. For example, if the original word was sweet a beginning player could say the word sugar and still be correct, but a more advanced player must say sugary! (Sweet and sugary are both adjectives while sugar is a noun.)
Want to keep score? Give each person who correctly names a synonym a point. Also, give the person who named the original word a point for each correctly named synonym given by the other players. This gives an advantage to players who can name words that have many, many different synonyms.
