Alphabetical Adjectives

No. of Players: 2+
Type of Game: spoken
What you need: nothing


To think of adjectives ordered alphabetically.

How to play

The first player says a two-word phrase consisting of an adjective beginning with A and a noun. The next player must then say a phrase consisting of an adjective beginning with B, and a noun that begins with the same letter as the noun spoken by the first player. This process repeats round the players. Anyone who cannot think of a suitable phrase is out of the game. The last player remaining is the winner. Alternatively, players must think of adjectives starting with the same letter as the first one spoken, with successive nouns working through the alphabet. For added difficulty, successive adjective and noun combinations must both start with the same letter.
