# How can I temporarily blind an opponent with the Command spell?

I love the spell command, and I am looking for a way to get someone to temporarily blind themselves. Yet, for the life of me I cannot find a solitary verb that means to close your eyes. Funny how bad the English language is, haha.

What command can I give with the command spell to temporarily blind an opponent?

• While I do not beleive this question to be off-topic here, I would recommend also posting it on the English Language SE. – Szega Jul 26 '19 at 6:54
• To what purpose? Even if you could find such a command (and I don't think there is an English word for it - or for that matter a French one. Which doesn't mean there isn't one in Common) they only do it on their turn so you (or anyone else) aren't in a position to take advantage of it on your turn. – Dale M Jul 26 '19 at 7:06
• What's wrong with grovel or halt? Both will prevent the target from taking any actions on their turn. – Josh Jul 26 '19 at 7:18
• The problem with grovel is that we have serval ranged fighters and they get disadvantage on units I prone. Blind gives everyone advantage. – Destiny Pugginty Jul 28 '19 at 13:53
• I'm fairly sure you can just use the word blind causing opponent to close their eyes. – RozzA Aug 25 '19 at 22:15
