Mythical Creatures Theme

One of our team members likes to curate the fun themed word lists in her spare time. For her newest category, she thought it would be fun to ask interested players to review and recommend additional words to the theme. The rules are simple: we aren’t allowing any proper nouns. That means no names like Zeus, Mars, Perseus, or other great mythical names… just creatures. Here’s what our themed list currently looks like:

  • apparition
  • appartions
  • automaton
  • automatons

What are we missing? Also, what do you think about our policy of not allowing proper nouns in themed puzzles? Personally, we are worried that it opens an inconsistency in the game and a bit of a Pandora’s box, but this is your game too and we’d like your thoughts.

    Definitely leave out the proper nouns, but i believe adding in the plural of minotaur might be suitable, as while there might have been just the one mythical creature in the labyrinth, in other works there were more than one. I think maybe even in The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.

    I see you have “beserker” and “beserkers,” but aren’t those spelled “berserker” and “berserkers”? Great category!
