Word Lightning

Although it sounds simple Word Lightning can prove quite challenging. Players are giving a letter and must rattle off as many words as possible within a minute that start with the chosen letter. Sounds simple right? Give it a try and see how you do.

Playing the Game
A player is chosen to give the starting letter and keep track of the time and number of words for each player.

Players take turns calling out as many words as possible within a minute.

Winning the Game
The player with the most words in the end is the winner and gets to choose the next letter and keep track of time and number of words.

Try playing with a wide age range. This game is one of the few that will challenge Preschoolers as well as adults.
