How To Play

Step One: Choose one person to begin. This person must think of a word, for example, ‘pencil’.

Step Two: That person whispers the word to the person on their right.

Step Three: This person must then whisper a new word associated with that word to the person on their right. For example, ‘pen’ is similar to ‘pencil’.
