In this game you have one minute to think up as many words as you can that begin with the same letter.

Number of Players: 2 or more
Place: Anywhere

Game Directions:

Word Lightning works for a wide variety of ages. In the preschool crowd it can help them recognize beginning sounds. For older kids you could tell them the words have to have at least "x" number of letters or be adjectives or adverbs, etc.

Players take turns picking a letter for everyone to use. Every player gets one minute to call out as many words as possible that begin with the letter chosen for the first round. One player acts as the timekeeper, counting the words being called out.

After everyone has had a turn, the player who called out the most words is named the winner. The winner gets to choose the letter for play in the next round.
