How to play
An alternade is a word that makes up at least two smaller words; these 'offspring' words are formed by alternatively taking letters from the 'parent' word in a strict sequence. In most alternades, every second letter from the parent word is used to form the two offspring, like in the word SCHOOLED, which makes SHOE and COLD.
In this game, the player(s) must guess the alternade parent and two offspring words from a short story.
