Weekend Writing Prompt #255

Haven’t done one of these for a while, but Sammi’s word Lexicon has triggered a childhood memory.
As a child, my parents were keen on education games such as Scrabble or Upwords.
There were two card games we played too, one was Kan U Go and the other Lexicon.
I vaguely remember being dealt cards, each having a single letter and value on it. The object of the game was to make words or change those already down until you’d played all your cards to win the hand. Everyone then added up their unplayed values and the first to 100 points lost.

This image is exactly as I remember.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Excellent game lexicon, a forerunner of Scrabble? 💜
