Sample Games

Alma’s Shopping List

Alma is a great shopper, but a really bad speller.  She’s going grocery shopping today, but she has misspelled every item on her list by one letter.  In this game, players must help fix Alma’s list by changing one letter of each word (without changing the order of the letters).  For example, if the word on Alma’s List is nice, it should be changed to rice.

Compound Images

Can you find the six compound words that can be formed using the twelve images provided?

Endings & Beginnings

In this game, players are given the first half of a compound word or a two-word phrase and the second half of another compound word or a two-word phrase.  They must provide the one word that completes both.  For example, given:

Credit  ____________ trick

The one word(s) that completes both “credit” and “trick” is card—making credit card and card trick.

People Rebus

Rebuses have been around for hundreds of years. They are visual games that use pictures to represent words or parts of words in a phrase or sentence.  In this case, the pictures represent parts of the names of famous people (both real and fictional).

Four-Letter Word Trivia

In this game, your players must provide an answer for each letter of a given four-letter word.  Take the word DESK, for example.  If the first question were “Name an author for each letter,” four correct answers might be: Dickens (Charles); Eliot (T.S.); Steinbeck (John); King (Stephen).

Odd Man Out

Given a list of three to five items, can you find the one item that doesn’t belong … and, explain why it doesn’t fit with the others.

“Never2Old4Games works great for my senior groups. The games are challenging enough to make them think and they always learn something new.”
