There used to be a board game called PROBE. Used versions on Amazon are shockingly expensive. When my parents cleared out their games a couple of years ago, I “called” PROBE, but one of my nieces ended up with it.
The purpose of the game is to come up with a word (using letter cards, face down on a rack) and other people guess the word, letter by letter. There are blank cards, too, a player can add to the beginning or the end of the word.
To this day, I will see a word and think, “Oh, that would be a great word for PROBE.”
Some of my favorite words are: gypsy; rhythm, awkward, squirm, swarm.
I confess: I am a word nerd.
