My wife and I love word games — crosswords, Boggle, Scrabble (our set is 25 sq. ft). We both grew up in Jamaica, where a common after-school activity is ‘Boy, Girl, Place, Thing’.
Gary is an alliterative game for 2 or more players. Throw up a card, and scribble answers to the 12 categories before time runs out. To score, eliminate duplicate answers and count the rest.
It’s free, open-source, and easily localized, so you don’t have to learn any US state capitals.
