Last Monday we had Family Game Night. Out of three choices: Yahtzee, Boggle and Rummikub the winning vote went to Boggle.
The game was a lot of fun and educational too. To even the playing field I only allowed myself to get points for 4 letter words and higher. This allowed the younger players a greater chance of gathering points.
What made us laugh most was that some people (who shall remain nameless) kept writing down random collections of letters that they were sure were words and insisting I look them up in the dictionary. Every round had about 5-10 words that we had to look up in our large collegiate dictionary.
Lo and behold, out of the dozens of nonsensical words we found 3 new words. I am going to write them below. If you know the definition tell me.
The commenter with the most words right will win a beautiful African cloth called a chitenge. If no one guesses any of the words I will choose a random comment. We will be operating on the honor system--no Google or dictionaries allowed.
The contest will run for one week. You have until Wednesday 8 AM CST, November 4 to post your answers. I will announce the winner by Thursday 8 AM CST.
Here are the words:
