Say the Same Thing is more of the latter than the former, but it’s free, fun, and good way to waste time with friends and learn the facts of life about in-app purchases.
A Game Of Words
I hesitate to say that Say The Same Thing is a word game with benefits. It’s multi-player. You and a friend enter a random word and then guess which word connects the two.
It can be something in common with the words or between you and your friends. If it teaches anything beyond vocabulary, it teaches a little about psychology.
How so? You want to know what’s going on inside your friend’s head, and tossing words back and forth starts to give you personal insights.
Say The Same Thing is somewhat social in that you play with friends, and it’s mostly a free form creation of words, hidden meanings, double entendres, and word association.
It seems aimed more at those still in school, but I found it fascinating to play with some students I know.
I like to think of it as Battleship (the game) with words and fewer rules.
There’s nothing preset. Just enter a word.
Say The Same Thing tracks each round.
You can play with a friend (also using the app), or play with a random partner online.
And, the game doesn’t need to be played instantly after every word is generated. Say The Same Thing tracks others waiting for a partner.
While it’s somewhat social in aspect, it does let you post to your Facebook account with a tap. Admittedly, it’s a bit addictive but because you’re dealing with words, word play, and word association between friends, it doesn’t seem as if you’re just killing time. But you are.
