Written Anagrams

No. of Players: 2+
Type of Game: written
What you need: pen and paper

Goal

To solve written anagrams.

How to play

One player prepares multiple copies of an identical list of anagrams for other players to solve. He then distributes the lists to the other players and tells them the words are grouped by a certain category. For added difficulty, the words can be unconnected to each other. The winner is the first player to form words out of all the anagrams, or the player who solves the largest number within a set time. Players can also be permitted to verbally declare they have solved a particular anagram, in which case they get a point; players then focus on the remaining anagrams to solve.

Example

Aldo prepares the following list of 10 anagrams for the other players. He tells them the category is state capitals:

OGOYNMRMTE
TEAHLASLEAS
SMELA
USAITN
JANCKOS
ISBEO
YAALBN
OUUOLHLN
ENDEVR
NHASVEILL
