The players form a line as in a spelling match. Sides may be chosen if

preferred. The first one begins by giving the first letter of a word,

"A" for instance, thinking of the word "Animal." The next player,

thinking of "animate," says, "n." The next, thinking of "antidote,"

says "t," but this with the other letters spells "ant," so he must go

to the foot of the line.

The object of the game is to keep from adding a letter which finishes

the word. Often one will give a letter, when thinking of another

word, which will complete a word. If he does not notice his mistake,

the others call out "foot."
