If you are looking for a family game that will not only entertain your family members but will also develop creativity and expand vocabulary, this game is the perfect choice!

The dictionary game is great for a big family, or a group of friends. All you need is an old dictionary! (or you can simply download a dictionary app on your mobile phone). One person chooses an unknown word from the dictionary and the rest of the people write a fake definition for this word (trust us, this part is very funny!). The person who picked the word adds a card with the correct definition and shuffles it with suggested answers. After this he/she reads all definitions aloud and players vote for what they think is the true definition. Players earn points when they guess the right definition. Players can also gain points for having the most picked INCORRECT definition (So it pays to be creative!).

This game will not only bring a lot of fun to your family evening but also will help to learn a lot of new words in a game form (especially useful for the youngest family members ☺).

And if you’re looking for a great snack to boost brain power during game night, why not prepare this delicious Chocolate Banana Smoothie
