Odd Words Out

Monday, 20 June 2011   |   Creativity Games

Odd words outThis week we're a little odd.

Game:  There are 5 random words listed below.  Your aim is to identify which two words are the odd ones out and explain why.

  • boutique
  • foam
  • orange
  • formula
  • prophet

Challenge:  For extra challenge, the two words need to be adjacent in the list above.

Strategy:  This game is exercising our observational creativity.  We are discovering how many different perspectives we can approach this list from.  Because there are two odd words out there are many possible combinations.  What strategies can you come up with to help you find the opportunities?  You can be just as creative in the strategies you concoct as you can be with how you identify the odd words out.  Have fun and find the obscure and different combinations.
