Students have a lot of fun and I think it is genuinely useful for expanding vocabulary and drawing attention to the wonder of words. Now be sure to try the grammar game and the art history game as well. I also like to challenge students to think about how this site is a win/win/win for everybody concerned. Students get to play a game and improve their vocabulary, poor people get fed and advertisers get to promote their businesses. The game has expanded to include art history, grammar, foreign language vocabulary. Explore it at the link immediately below.
