game show

Here is a fun word game we can play together. Do you all know the American game show "Jeopardy"? In the game show, the contestants see the definitions of words or phrases based on a specific category. Example
Category: Movies
Sample Answer : "A film about droids in space."
The contestants see the answer and have to guess the question. They hit their buzzers when they think they know the word or phrase that is being described. Their answers are stated in the form of a question.
Buzz: What is Star Wars?

This is the kind of game we play on's Facebook page. Now that we have almost 13, 500 friends, these games are a little more difficult because people answer simultaneously. You can lose your turn or get all mixed up pretty quickly. I thought we'd try this game here on MyEC. You can leave your guess (or your definition if it's your turn) in the comments.

For categories, let's use word forms! Start with a definition and guess the word. I'll write the first one.

Let's Play...
My Quiz Question
Category: Nouns
*Definition: "The process of having original ideas that are of value."
What's the word? Buzz in if you know! Be sure to leave your answer in the form of a question.

In the comments you can guess mine and add your own. To respond to someone else's quiz, use @Tara or @Nadiyah or @whoeverelsehasaquizquestion. Please come back often to let people know if they answered correctly. Please try to write a definition in your own words rather than copying from a dictionary.

*This is Sir Ken Robinson's definition of the word I am thinking of. I just watched a video that inspired this post. I'll share it after you answer correctly.
