Engkers (#1)


Engkers is a new feature which, from time to time, will share fun little word games that can be played during holiday times, riding in the car, or even standing in line at the store.  This game you need to play before you go to the store.

The holidays are here.  It’s time to make a list of things you need to get at the grocery store.


This game can be played with two or more people. The first person says something you need to get at the store. The second person repeats that word and adds something new. The third person says the first two things and adds one more.  Keep going but don’t write the words down! (You can make a list of scratch marks |||| to make sure you aren’t forgetting anything as you repeat your list.) And don’t forget to add funny things! How long can you make your list without forgetting something? 

IF THAT WAS TOO EASY . . . play the game as if you were living in a new country. If you were living in China what things would you buy before a holiday?  Or what if you were in France or Italy?  (Use the internet to find out what people in other countries enjoy during their holidays.)
