31 Days of Fall Fun (Day 9): Halloween Mad Gab

Attend concert (1)

I think I would have to turn in my writer’s card if I didn’t love plays on words, and word puns, and other clever misuses of the English language. Which is why I’m always on the lookout for word games and puzzles that let me stretch my writerly sensibilities in new ways.  So when I discovered Mad Gab I found a whole new way to enjoy word games. It’s just so easy to play and after a glass (or two) of wine with your hubby or some milk and cookies with the kids, it can be a really fun way to spend time together.

And of course because it’s that time of year I found a Halloween Mad Gab version from Sawdust Girl and will post the game below so you can see it. But I want to explain how to play quick.

A game of Mad Gab starts off with a group of words that look completely unrelated.  As you sound them out, you have to try to guess what ACTUAL group of words  sounds similar to the gibberish you’re reading.

Ex:  Noose Pay Perry Port

Answer: Newspaper Report

Ya dig?

Good! Cause this can be a lot of fun and even if you run out of Halloween themed ones, the magical internet usually has a number of them ready to go so it’s some good old-fashioned wholesome (and free) fun!

So without further ado:
