Words from Words

WordsThis week we're recreating.

Game:  There is one random word below.  It is the starting word.  Your aim is to suggest a new word that relates to the previous comments word and also uses atleast 4 of the letters of that word.  The more letters you can incorporate the better.  If you can use all the letters then you are truly awesome.

  • synthetic

Challenge:  For extra challenge use only letters from the previous comments word and the previous one to that.

Strategy: Trying to come up with what words could relate to the current word is an interesting exercise in itself.  Sure there will be a set of obvious words but with a bit of creativity we can generally extend that pool considerably.  But now we also have to think of words that can be recreated within the set of letters we have at our disposal.  An interesting restriction as the word we come up with will influence where the next person goes.  Activities like this are great for creativity as the path evolves as we go.  We can't prepare for or predict it.  It's a surprise and it's fun.
