Choose one of the words below, tell your partner how many letters the word has, and write one gap for each letter (e.g. “_ _ _ _ _” for a five-letter word). Then give other hints about how many of different letters are in the word and then where the letters go until your partner guesses what the word is. You get one point for each hint that your partner needs and one point for each incorrect guess at what the word is. Then switch roles and try to guess the word that your partner gives you hints about.
