Suspended sentences

ltcgoudyinitials2.gifThis is from David Parlett's Suspensions.

One player takes a short sentence from a novel, less than 10 words, and writes it down. To the rest of the players he announces the initial letters of each word. Each player then writes down a sentence with words that begin with those letters. The players pass those back to the person with the real sentence who then alphabetizes them by first word and then reads them. Players try to guess which is the original sentence.

Tip: If short sentences are hard to find, cut out some of the phrases.

If you want to keep score, give a point to each person whose sentence gets picked as the real one.
