Beginning with the Letter "S," Board-Game.

Sold in every store that sells board-games. 

How is it played? Good question! Someone rolls a dice with most of the letters of the alphabet on the faces of the dice. Then you start the timer and you go down a pre-determined list of categories  The list will tell you what kind of word to come up with. For instance, if the letter is "G" and the category is "state" then you can either write down "Georgia" or "grumpy." It helps you to score points if you are creative. The next category down that list could be "Color" so then you would have to come up with a color that begins with the letter "G." You could put "green" but there's a good chance that someone else will be writing "green," so you could put down "golden mustard." Obscure words and things are usually the way to go. Sure, it's easy to think of the word now but when you are sitting with a group of people and there's a timer buzzing away and you need to think of 12 things to write down in different categories that all begin with the letter "J," you're going to have a hard time. Scoring depends on your word. If someone else use the same word, your answers cancel each other out and neither of you get a point for the word. If you make a unique word, you get one point. If you use two words and both begin with the same letter, you get two. Three words with the same letter, 3 points, and so on and so forth. You can string many words together such as "red fire hydrants" for "things found at a park" beginning with the letter "R." You still only get one point for that though. I like coming up with all these different things so I really enjoy the game! Like most other games, it's more fun if you play with more people.  :D
