In response to Thesaurus Game‘s challenge: Roam

I chose Roam from these synonyms: drift, meander, prowl, ramble, saunter, snake, stray, stroll, traipse, tramp, trek, wander….

Want to Play?

First, pick a synonym from below. Now tell us what you picked in a comment. If you like, add a few words (or a bunch of words) about why you picked it. Or maybe use it to inspire a poem or micro-fiction or… well, anything you like.

Some Snake Synonyms:

serpent, ophidian, traitor, twist, wind, curl, coil, cheat, swindler, viper… more synonyms

EZPZ, right?

Just … play nice. (Check out the conditions of play if you’re not sure what nice means. ;))

You can also play by replying to any of the comments other people post. Use a thesaurus to find a synonym for the word in the comment, and reply with that.

Advanced Play

Want to play the advanced game? Pick your synonym and use it as inspiration to create a new blog post: words, images, sound, video … just about anything, really.

You can think of Thesaurus Game as a one-word creativity prompt, but instead of giving you the one word, you’re getting a list of synonyms to choose your one word (or synonymous phrase) from.

  • In your post, say you are replying to the “Thesaurus Game Challenge”.
  • Tell us your response is for “Snake”
  • Tell us which synonym you’ve chosen
  • Add a link to this post
  • Please (optional) also add a link to Thesaurus Game.
  • Use the #ThesaurusGame tag in your post
  • Add these rules to your post, if you like.

Adding the rules to your post will make it a sort of remote “mini-hub” for the game. People can play the Thesaurus Game in your comments, and can link to your post from theirs.

Here are the full Thesaurus Game rules.
