How to play
This game is the reverse of Multiwords. The gamemaster chooses a mystery word and makes a list of words that are made from its letters. Letters can be used in any order to make words in this list, but a letter can be used for a word only as many times as it appears in the mystery word. For instance, if the mystery word is DIRECTION, the gamemaster could include CIDER but not DOOR in the list. This list is then given to the other players who try to guess the mystery word. The first player to correctly guess the word becomes the gamemaster for the next round. To ease the difficulty of gameplay, the gamemaster can provide hints, like the length of the mystery word or whether any of the listed words are related to it.
Alicia chooses a mystery word and makes the following list for the other players:
No player can guess the word, so they ask for a hint. Alicia tells them it is a 9-letter word that means 'remove' or 'abolish.' With a little thought, Boone correctly guesses ELIMINATE and becomes the gamemaster for the next round.
