How to play

  1. Everybody gets a pencil and paper. Someone has to be the timekeeper (a good job for a grown-up). The timekeeper picks a letter, tells it to everyone else and shouts "Go!"

  2. Players write as many words as possible that start with that letter. When a minute is up, the timekeeper says "Stop!" and all the players put down their pencils.

  3. Whoever has the most legitimate words wins. Decide in advance whether you can finish writing a word you've already started when the game ends.

  4. Now, give everyone one more minute to write a sentence with as many of the words as they can.
