I'm in the process of practicing/improving my Latin writing (an endless endeavor to be sure), and I thought it would be fun to try a writing game. There is a party game here in the U.S. called Taboo, where you draw a card with a word on it and you must describe the word to your team without using it. I once read that this is a great example of what it is like to speak in a foreign language when you don't know a particular word for something. Anyways, this got me thinking. There are plenty of Latin words that I don't know, but a handful that I do! Wouldn't it be fun to try playing something like "Taboo" as a writing game. Here is how it works: The first person (me) posts a description (in Latin) of a thing/person/place/action/etc. The writer does not necessarily need to know how to say the final word in Latin. Ideally, the writer should try to avoid using a Dictionary and rely on the words that you know (not that anyone could tell...). The first person to see the post is free to supply what they think is the answer. Always provide an answer in English. If you also know the Latin word, please supply that in ( ). This will help us all learn some new vocabulary! When you supply an answer, you must also post a new description for everyone to guess. Otherwise, the game would end... If two people post an answer to the same description at the same time, then the next person must try to guess an answer for both posts. The person who wrote the original description can then let everyone know if the guess was correct or not (and supply the correct answer) by "quoting" the answer in a separate post. As an example, I might post: Salvē. Animāl sum. Quattuor pedēs habeō. Canis sum sed nōn canis sum. Cum loquor, ululō praecipuē ad lunam. Quid sum?The next person would then answer: You're a wolf (lupus)! Here is my description...And then provide another description for the next person.I would then confirm the answer (whenever I'm back online) by writing something like: Nice job, you figured it out!I'm hoping this will give everyone a chance to practice a little bit of simple off the cuff Latin writing while also learning some new words. I'm also curious to see how people describe things. It should be fun! Here is the first description: Pīlum minimum sum. Ex ligneā facior. Cum cibum inter dēntem tuum est, mē ōrem purgāre potes. Quid sum?
