Anaghost

No. of Players: 2+
Type of Game: written or spoken
What you need: pen & paper or nothing

Goal

To add to a set of letters without completing an actual word or an anagram.

How to play

This game is a variation of Ghost and Superghost. It is played the same way except players try to avoid making anagrams in addition to actual words.

Example

Amos says the letter S. Bailey thinks of the word SUMMER and says R. Claire thinks of REST and says T. Dawn thinks of START and says A. Bailey and Claire both jump on Dawn's obvious mistake, noting how the letters SRTA form the words RATS, STAR, ARTS, TARS and TSAR. As a result, Dawn loses one life.
