The objective of this game is to think of words containing a given pair of letters.
One student calls out two letters of the alphabet, and all the other students have to write down (in a set time) all the words they can think of that contain those two letters together. The winner is the student who thinks of the largest number of words. Alternatively, students score one point for every word they make but two points for words that nobody else has written down. If desired, it can be ruled that the pair of letters must not start or end words.
