BIRD, BEAST, OR FISH.

Source: Games for Everybody






A simple little game for amusing two children is the following. Write
on the top of a slate or paper the words "Bird, beast, and fish."

One child thinks of the name of some animal and puts down the first
and last letters of the word, marking dashes for the other letters.
His companion thinks over all the names of animals he knows containing
that number of letters, until finally he has guessed what it is or
else has given up. If he guesses correctly it is his turn to give
either a bird, beast, or fish.
