When I was putting together this site of games, I discovered that my printable word lists became very popular. I had word lists for pictionary, charades, and other games, and visitors seemed to really like them! So I got to thinking, what’s one step better than a printable list of words for playing pictionary? An online word generator! Here I’ve taken all the words on my printables, plus hundreds more, and combined them into different categories for playing games like pictionary, catchphrase, charades, or any other game you want.

Here’s how it works: First, select a Game (the game menu also includes a Holiday option). Then select a Category. (The Categories will change based on the Game you select, and often include levels, like Easy words, Medium words, and Hard words, or might have a listing of specific holidays.) Then just click New Word and you’re good to go – the word generator will give you a game word from the list and you can play!

My amazing husband also made an iPhone app with all the same content. Download it here on the App Store. Then you can play on the go, even with no Internet connection.

Finally, I love feedback! If you have any input on the word lists, whether they’re too hard or too easy or too short or anything, I’d love to hear! I’d love to hear requests, too, if you have a new game or category you’d like to see. Just let me know!
