TEAPOT.

Source: Games for Everybody






One player leaves the room, and while he is gone the rest decide upon
some word which has several meanings, which he must guess when he
comes in.

The rest of the players converse about the word, but instead of
mentioning it, say "Tea-pot" in its place. Suppose the word chosen is
"vain." No. 1 may say: "She is altogether too tea-pot for me." (vain)
No. 2 says: "The tea-pot pointed North yesterday." (vane) No. 3: "The
tea-pot is blue." (vein), and so on, each in turn making some remark
about the chosen word until the player has guessed it correctly. The
person who gave the broadest hint about the hidden word must leave the
room next.
