Word games.

I came up with a word game to amuse myself: take 33 letter tiles (I use the ones from the Bananagrams), create as many interconnecting words as possible and then do a short story, poem, observation using all of them 10 minutes.

My yesterday creation included the following words, see below, with four letters "a" "a" "r" "p" left unused.

As my husband passed by the  table, I asked, "Care to make a use of the remaining tiles?"  He immediately came up with the word "rape" but seeing my slightly horrified face changed it to "trap", which left only one tile unused - the second letter "a"

My son stopped by and was given the same task with the previous four letter: two "a", "p" and "r". Below is his creation with no tiles left = 33 out of 33

I didn't torture them with creation of the story/poem out of the words but I wrote somewhat of an invocation:

Oh joyful angel in a vivid robe
A Mater of zen, who is keen on fun,
Touch me with a golden pin
Tap into my creativity
Extinguish my vanity
Show me your lofty goals
Don't let me fall par below
Fill me with joy,
Share a tad of your wisdom.
