  • Forum: No, wait. Don't tell me
    We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

  • Forum: Oh, and have you read...?
    Read anything good recently? You don't have to write a review. If it was good, mention it here. If it was rotten, mention it here.

    Please include both the name of the book and its author(s) in the title of your posting. Our gratitude for your considerateness will be your reward!

  • Forum: Word Games and Challenges
    Here's where you can set a challenge or invite other Wordwizard members to take part in a word-related game of some kind.

    To stop things getting too confusing, it's probably best to create a separate thread for each new game or challenge.
