_Any number of players._

_Parlor; schoolroom._

The first player says, "The minister's cat is an avaricious cat,"
using an adjective which begins with "a" to describe the cat.

The next player makes a remark about the cat, using the same initial
letter for the adjective; for instance, that it is an "aggressive"
cat. This is continued, each player using a different adjective
beginning with the letter "_a_," until the game has gone entirely
around the circle. The first player then makes a similar remark about
the cat, using an adjective beginning with "_b_." This goes around,
and so on through the alphabet. Any player who is slow to respond, or
who fails, must either drop out of the game or pay a forfeit, as may
be decided at the start.
