Provide each player with pencil and paper. The leader has a
dictionary which she opens at any place and selects a word which the
rest are to define.

The players write the word and their definition of it on the slips of
paper. When the leader taps a bell all the slips must be collected and
mixed up in a basket or hat.

Each player then draws out a slip and the definitions are read aloud
in turn. The leader decides which one has written a definition most
like the one in the dictionary. The author of the best one rises,
receives the dictionary, gives out a word and the game proceeds as
before.
