To guess the taboo letter.
How to play
One person is selected to be the joker whose job is to mentally choose a letter of the alphabet. This letter is deemed to be the taboo letter. The joker then questions the other players in turn. Questions are asked in a way that can be answered using a single word. If the answer includes the taboo letter, that player loses a life. Each player starts out with three lives, and anyone losing all three is out of the game. A player can, at any time, guess the taboo letter. A correct guess makes that player the joker for the next round. But if he guesses incorrectly, he loses two lives.
