Interactive Word Games

Hello,  I'm new here and jumping right in because I'm so excited about finding a community of people online over the age of 30 for freaking sake.  I'm involved in another forum, which I do enjoy as it is centered around a shared interest, but there are literally about four, four people in my age group.  (I'm 57)

Anyway, on that forum we play some interactive word games that are easy and fun, "keep-you-involved" icebreakers.

One of them is to state in one word how you are feeling that particular day - what kind of day you're having.  Like, I might say, "unmoored," or whatever, etc. and others respond with their own single words.

 

Or, there is a similar game wherein a person uses a meme or image to describe their feelings that day.

Also, there is the one everybody knows that starts with one word and each person adds a word at a time, creating a story.

And, there are the synonym / antonym games, which are pretty self-explantory.  There can be two; each using only synonyms or antonyms or a single which goes back and forth (which I think is a little more fun, personally.)

Lastly, there's the "First word to pop into your head game."  Write a word, the next person writes the frist word that comes to mind, etc.

I know they're silly games, but they are also fun, easy and keep people connected.

So... anyone up for this?

I haven't figured this site out well yet, but if I can, I'll try to start a game below and see what happens.  If I can't and someone else wants and knows how to do that, have at it.  🙂
