Where have you heard that word before? Was it something your mother said when you were little? Maybe it was in a movie title or the line from your favorite song? Or perhaps it’s just a word inside ANOTHER word. Regardless of where you heard that word, now you know the philosophy behind Word Heard.
If you’re still a little confused, consider the following questions:
Question: How does a game like Word Heard become successful?
Answer: Through WORD of mouth!
Question: And how did you find out that Word Heard is a great game?
Answer: I HEARD it through the grapevine!
As you can see, the concept of the game isn't too far off from a crossword puzzle. You’re given clues as well as the number of letters in each answer. However, instead of solving clues by crisscrossing words, you’re given clue words (in this case, the clues were “WORD” and “HEARD”) for each category and must then use at least one clue word in each of the answers.
What’s the beauty of Word Heard? Some would argue for its relaxing nature. There’s no time limit and no penalty for a wrong answer. Others champion it for its use of common phrases that almost everyone is familiar with. No questions about Russian novelists or South American geography here. But our favorite aspect of the game is that “Aha!” moment. When a clue is just eating at you, because the answer is sticking out there on the tip of your tongue. And then it just randomly pops into your head. All you can think is, “THAT’S where I Heard that Word!”
