Initial Answer

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


To answer questions with words that start with a player's initials.

How to play

The first player asks the other players a question. Each player must answer this question using words that start with the same letters as their name. Once all players have answered (including the questioner), the second player asks a question which must be answered in the same way. A player who cannot think of a suitable answer has to drop out of that round. Players can agree to use three initials if every player has a middle name. Players with difficult initials like X or Z are permitted to use another agreed upon letter as a substitute. Alternatively, players must answer using the initials of the player to their right.
