Is there a way to win the “How many words can you make” game?

You can absolutely play the game on your own, and try to come up with as many words as possible.

Or, if you are playing in a group setting there are a few ways you can make it more challenging and competitive.

Especially if you are playing the game at a holiday party, you may want to make things a little more interesting! Here are a few ideas:

You can make it a timed competition:
First, set a timer for somewhere around 3-5 minutes. If you have younger kids playing you may want to set the timer for a longer duration.

When someone says “START,” each person has to try and come up with as many words as they can think of before the timer runs out. Once time is up, whichever player has come up with the most amount of words, wins!

You can turn the game into scattergories:
For this fun and challenging twist, each player will still have to come up with as many words as they can. Make sure they are as unique as possible!

After the timer runs out, each player can go around the room and read out their words and compare them. If there if another player that has the same answer as you, you both have to cross that word off of your list. Whoever has the most unique answers at the end of the game, wins!
