CITIES.

Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Provide all the guests with pencil and paper. The hostess then
requests that each write the name of the city in which he was born,
and under that a sentence, descriptive of that city or containing
something suggestive of it. The letters of the city form the words of
the sentence and must follow in regular order.

Allow fifteen minutes for composing the sentences, then collect them,
mix them up, and each player is given one. Thus each one has some
other person's slip to read. The one who composed the best sentences
deserves a prize.

Examples--City, New York.

Sentence--N-ow, E-very, W-all St., Y-ankee, O-wns, R-eal, K-ingdoms.

City, Chicago.

Sentence--Conflagration, H-igh, I-n, C-rowded, A-reas, G-rew, O-n.
