    other ways to say - so much fun

    I tend to over use the word fun, and I am looking for synonyms or other phrases to use in conversations.

    1) Lets go outside and play. It'll be so much fun.
    2) It is fun to watch television.
    3) We can have a lot of fun reading the book together.
    4) We had fun at the carnival.
    5) That is a fun game.

    My dictionary suggests these terms, but I doubt that all of them are natural and common:

    joy
    delight
    pleasure
    glee
    elation
    enjoyment
    mirth [poet.]lit.
    fun
    gratification
    gladness
    rejoicing
    joice
    blitheness
    funnies
    joyousness
    (good) cheer
    lark [Br.]
    craic [Irish]
    spree
    groove [sl.]
    jest
    sport [fun, pleasantry]

    Sorry but these substitutions don't sound natural in conversational english. Thanks for the reply anyway.

    I did the same online thesaurus and dictionary search and got similar synonyms. I was looking for more common conversational substitutes that dont sound odd.

    Re: other ways to say - so much fun

    You can say "we enjoyed ourselves", followed by an appropriate adverb ("tremendously", for example). Or "we had a great time!"
