Dictionary Game
Sent in by: Kristy of Grass Valley, CA

Word up!

This game is for two or more players.

Your objective in the following diversion is to conjecture the rather esoteric denotations that your associates deem the most veracious. It's quite blithesome, and may also improve your lexicon!

In other words, the object of this game is to guess the correct definition of a word that also has made-up definitions. It's a lot of fun and builds your vocabulary.

To play, each player takes turns choosing a difficult word from the dictionary and writing it and its definition down on a card.

The player then makes up two new definitions for the word.

Then, the player reads the word and the three definitions.

The other players have to guess which is the real definition of the word.
