THERE ARE SEVERAL VARIATIONS OF A GAME USING THE ALPHABET.
IN EACH YOU MUST GO THROUGH EACH LETTER AND THINK OF
SOMETHING IN THE CATEGORY THAT STARTS WITH THE LETTER. "A,"
"THE" AND "AN" DON'T COUNT. THE CATEGORIES ARE MOVIES, BOOKS,
ANIMALS AND SONGS, TO NAME A FEW.
FOR EXAMPLE IF THE CATEGORY WERE ANIMALS AND THROUGH TAKING
TURNS YOU HAD REACHED THE LETTER "K" YOU COULD USE KANGAROO.
YOU NEED AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE, THOUGH MORE IS MORE FUN. FOR
A MORE CHALLENGING GAME, GO THROUGH THE ALPHABET AGAIN WITH
THE SAME CATEGORY, BUT YOU CAN'T USE THE SAME WORDS AS THE
LAST GAME.
A VARIATION OF THIS IS LOOKING FOR LETTERS, IN ALPHABETICAL
ORDER, ON SIGNS AND LICENSE PLATES WHILE TRAVELING ON ROADS.
THIS IS MORE COMPETITIVE, BECAUSE NO ONE TAKES TURNS.
