DIY Family Games: The Dictionary Game and More

The Alphabet Game

The Alphabet Game is a great one to play in the car, sitting around the dinner table, or waiting in line with antsy kids. Start by choosing a category – this could be anything: states, cities, animals, movie titles, famous people – and then go around the group with each player naming something in that category starting with the next letter of the alphabet. It sounds deceptively easy (alligator, bumblebee, cat, etc.) but it requires quick thinking and a broad knowledge base to win.
