Wondrous Words Wednesday

May 1, 2019

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found one new to me word in MY LOVELY WIFE by Samantha Downing.

1. roshambo – “As we walk into the office, Jenna and Rory play roshambo to see who goes first.”

Roshambo is the game of rock paper scissors. (as three words, ro sham bo) the syllables called out by players of rock paper scissors to synchronize their timing.  We’ve always called that game “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” so I’ve never heard this word.  What do you call the game?


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    Hmm! I’ve always known it as Rock, Paper, Scissors, Stone. Roshambo is a new one on me and something I’ll have to suggest playing to Mr T this evening.

    The word roshambo is new to me as well! It’s terrific to know the name of this game now.

    Den and I call it confusing! We can never figure out why both players don’t just play rocks all of the time. Don’t rocks always rule?
