Step by step

Word Guessing Game

Back to all tools


  1. This activity helps stimulate the imagination and ability to explain choices.
  2. Participants should write a combination of words (noun + adjective) about a specific category on pieces of paper. The more unusual the combination of words, the more difficult it will be to explain and remember for others, but it will probably make the game much more interesting and memorable.
  3. Everyone takes out one piece of paper and, without mentioning the written words, tries to explain. The others in the group or in pairs have to guess the combination of words.
  4. It is important that the guess words are not too simple, for example, you can easily guess the word “money” or “health”, but rather try using more complicated ones like “funny marathon runner” or “cryptocurrency tycoon”.
  5. At the end of the activity, participants share their impressions and answer the question of whether it helped to better understand the wide spectrum of different occupations.
