How to play
This game is a variation of Riddles.
A player challenges himself to write a riddle in poetic form and then presents this verbal puzzle to other players to solve. The first player to solve the poetic riddle is the winner.
Alan puts a famous riddle into poetic form for the other players to solve:
There is a word,
When speaking of qualities
Devoid of frivolities.
The first two letters signify male,
The first three, female,
The first four, a great man,
The whole word, a great woman.
