Dust off a dictionary for a game that makes learning new words fun.
What You Need: a dictionary, paper strips and pencils, 3 or more players
One person starts as the Professor Dictionary by locating an interesting word found in the dictionary that no one knows the definition.
Professor Dictionary writes the real definition on a slip of paper. If there are several different definitions, the first one or easiest to understand is good enough.
Everyone else writes their best idea for the definition of the word on strips of paper.
All the definitions go to Professor Dictionary, who mixes the papers and reads them aloud. Which one is right? Everyone takes a guess.
Players gain 5 points for guessing the correct definition and/or a definition the same as the real one. They also gain 1 point if someone chooses their definition. The first person to reach 20 points becomes the next Professor Dictionary.
