Aim of the game

The goal of the game is to find and write down words for selected game categories. The game is played in multiple rounds. In each round, words starting with a randomly selected letter from the alphabet are searched for. The words entered by the players are evaluated according to the points. The player who gets the most points wins.

Rules of the game

  1. Each player receives a game sheet and places it in front of them along with a pencil.
  2. The game has several rounds. For each round of the game, you must specify a letter that each word will begin with.
  3. One of the players say the alphabet in their head. Another player stops them at any time with the word STOP.
  4. The round begins when the player says the letter where he was stopped out loud.
  5. Players must fill in the words for each category in one row of the table as quickly as possible. The words must begin with the selected letter.
  6. The first player to fill in all the categories shouts the word STOP and everyone else has to put down their pencil. The players can also agree to end the round at any time.
  7. At the end of each round, points are awarded for the words according to the rules on the game card.
  8. The game ends after the agreed number of rounds. The player with the most points wins.
  9. TIP: If one of the players writes more slowly, change point 6 and end the round after the time limit, for example 2 minutes.
