DIY Family Games: The Dictionary Game and More

The Dictionary Game

It turns out there’s a reason you’ve been keeping that massive dictionary around instead of just turning to the search app on your phone: It’s key to playing the Dictionary game. One player chooses a word from the book (that none of the other players have heard before) and the rest of the players write down a fake definition for it. The player who picked the word shuffles the suggested definitions and adds a card with the correct answer, then reads all the definitions aloud; players vote for which definition they think is the real one, and earn points for getting it right or for coming up with the most popular fake definition.
