How to play
The gamemaster chooses a set of letters. For instance, he says "Let's begin with B–O–N." The other players then write down words that begin with those letters, like BONNET or BONELESS. The player with the longest list at the end of a given time wins to become the next gamemaster. Numerous sets of letters could also be given, and the first player to write down a word for every set would win.
Alternatively, players sit in a circle and speak their answers out loud. Any player who cannot think of a suitable word must drop out. This continues until there is only one player left. If a less competitive game is desired, no gamemaster is needed. Players simply take turns challenging each other to think of words beginning with particular letters.
The players sit in a circle and take turns suggesting letters. They agree only one answer is needed and that they can set other rules if desired.
|Alex:||Let's begin with A–C–R. My word is ACROBAT.|
|Bill:||Let's begin with K–A–R. I'm thinking of KARATE.|
|Carl:||Let's begin with C–U–R. Words must be 7 or more letters. CURTAIN is acceptable.|
|Daisy:||Let's begin with B–R–U. Words must end with a vowel. My word is BRUNETTE.|
And so on.
