Dr. Carr's Word Forage is a collaborative, chance-based poetry board game.

No experience with poetry required.

Beginners encouraged.

While there are "winners," ultimately the objective is to introduce players to the magic and joy of language by jolting them into poems they didn't know they had inside them.

This poetry board game is designed to emphasize:

  • the joy of the art

  • the playful nature of the poetic mind, and

  • the surprise of language gone strange and big and full of unexpected association
