How to play

This word game is like a partially solved Crossword puzzle – minus the grid. The Gamemaster prepares a list of words with many of their letters missing. Each word has a clue, and players try to complete these words by solving these clues. The first player to correctly solve all the words wins the round to become the next gamemaster. A time limit can also be set: if no single player solves the entire puzzle in time, the player with the greatest number of completed words will be declared the winner.


Aurora distributes copies of the following list of partially completed words, with clues, to each of the players. The player who solves the entire puzzle, or the player who solves the most in 10 minutes, becomes the next gamemaster.
