H2G2 has lots of lovely word games and other fun threads; they take no serious thought to play, they tend to be very busy, and, unfortunately, highly addicive. Before long you find yourself at the top of the stats page, and wonder what you are doing with your life. You just can't leave them. You keep posting untill you can barely keep your eyes open, you find yourself hampered with backlog. You are not alone.
The Offending Threads
The following threads are the biggest offenders in keeping researchers away from what they should be doing... If you would like to suggest another thread, then do so.
The Ask h2g2 collection
The following games are from Ask h2g2.
There is some debate currently as to whether such threads should be on this page, so please do not start new word games here until further notice to avoid upsetting people.
The United Friends Collection
These games are played on United Friends of h2g2 space
Word game gymnastics is an article soley for playing word games.
Whose Line is it Anyway?
This site is for word games based on Whose Line is it Anyway?' The idea is to have a conversation keeping to the rules in the subject heading - so for 'Questions only' you must only ask questions.
