This is a very simple game for children of all ages which just requires a supply of pencils and paper and a bit of thinking-power!
Number of Players: 2 +
Age Range: 6+
You will need:
Paper and pencil for each player.
Choose a name randomly (shorter for younger children, longer for older kids) and write it down the left hand side of the page, one letter under another. Now give everybody 5 minutes to write down as many first names as they can think of which begin with the letters in that name. Score one point for each name that you come up with.
You can make the scoring more exciting by awarding two points for any name that no-one else comes up with .. but when we played like this we found ourselves in a big argument over one or two "made-up" names and whether they counted or not!
