Are you a word nerd?

Are you a word nerd? Do you consider yourself a logophile? What are your favorite games to play that satisfy your love of words?

I play the card game Quiddler a lot. I prefer Scrabble but my regular opponent evidently can't deal with the possibilities a grid demands of him, so we play this card game instead.

 

I like Wordle, too. Big fan, big fan! I played it every day for almost two days!

 

In fact, I loved it back when it was a game show called "Lingo" long before it became the trendy brand-new-thing no one had heard of before! 

 

Yeah, I'm not going to be making friends with these kind of posts.

@AvocadoDog , I really enjoy Quiddler, Boggle and have been playing Wordle for a few months now.  Never been a Scrabble fan.  Probably because my spelling has never been my strong suit.  I'm a veracious reader, so I can usually tell you if something doesn't look like it's spelled correctly.  The great thing about Quiddler ( obviously Scrabble too ) is I'm increasing my vocabulary in a fun way.

Defintely Outspell -- it is a sense of accomplishment to Outspell the mechanical opponent.  Other fun AARP word games would be Codeword and Split words (Staying Sharp.)

My favorites on the AARP Games site are Outspell and Scramble and my favorite on a table is Scrabble.  On Megatouch, I also play several word games (i.e., Zen Word) for 25 cents a pop.

I'm cringe worthy "back when dinosaurs roamed the earth" era-

Hangman or Scrabble, or "hands on/in the peel" Bananagrams with several dictionaries, thesaurus.

Penny Dell Puzzles dot com/(free)Puzzler's Corner/Word of the Day-

today is: farrago (noun) An assortment or a medley; a conglomeration.

 

Big fan of Rock, Paper, Scissors for ending squabbles. It works, everyone involved feels not slighted.

Arkadium has Today's Hurdle, a fun word game I think we'd enjoy here at AARP.

Thanks for your suggestions, @Rhymesometimes and @WebWiseWoman! I'm also a fan of Wordle and sometimes practice on WhatWord before playing😊

@AARPLynne , There are three that come to mind, Boggle, wordle and quiddler. Would be awesome if we had games like those represented on this site to play.
