SPELLING MATCH.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Choose leaders and divide the company into sides. The sides stand
opposite each other as in the old-fashioned spelling match.

The leader, who may be the hostess, has a spelling book from which she
selects the words which the players must spell backwards. Words of
one or two syllables may be chosen, and if, when spelt backwards, they
spell other words, so much the better.

The players take turns, one on one side, and one on the other, and so
on, until all have spelled. If any fail to spell the word backwards,
or do not pronounce it afterward, if it can be pronounced, they must
drop out. The side which stands up the longest is the winning side.

Some words are:

Star Now Pan Dew
Mat Eve Bard Tub
Stop Eel Tops Ton
Ten On Den Nun




Next: POOR PUSSY.
