STRAY SYLLABLES.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Prepare long strips of paper on which the guests are requested to
write several words of three or more syllables, leaving spaces between
each syllable.

When this is done, cut up the words into the syllables and mix
thoroughly. Then each player draws three syllables and tries to
construct a word.

If a word can't be made of all three syllables, maybe it can be made
of two, but if it is then impossible to construct a word, the player
must wait until the rest draw three syllables again, and perchance he
may be able to construct two words, using the syllables he could not
use before.

The one constructing the most words, wins the game.
