Free word game for families (8+)

It’s lock down 3 (in the UK) and to keep young minds active and thinking about words we’ve invented a new word game, ‘Word Chain.’ Rules, cards and a board are available to download for free. It is probably most suited to children over 8, as it includes words like ‘synonym’ and ‘antonym’ but with a little support younger players can join in. It is non-competitive, with no winners and losers.

Please feel free to share it with families.

We would appreciate your feedback, so let us know how you get on by emailing us at

On the blog we have other games to play at home listed under ‘free resources for schools and families.’
