HUNTING FOR BOOKTITLES.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR SPECIAL DAYS.





The hostess must prepare beforehand pictures, cut from magazine
advertisements and miscellaneous articles, suggestive of the titles of
books.

These are arranged around the room, some on tables, some on the wall,
and in any place, so all the guests can see them. All the articles are
numbered.

The guests are handed pencil and paper and the hostess announces that
all the articles represent the title of some book and when guessed the
names are to be written opposite their corresponding numbers. Allow
half an hour for the hunt, and when the time is up the hostess reads
the correct list and the player who has guessed the largest number
correctly, deserves a prize.

Examples--A large bow of orange ribbon pinned on a curtain,
immediately suggests "A Bow of Orange Ribbon," by Amelia Barr.

A picture of several boys suggests "Little Men," by Louisa M. Alcott.

A picture of Gen. Grant cut in half suggests "Half a Hero."
