This fun, fast game starts with a card showing a category, such as Country, Animal, Profession or Food. A second card is then flipped over, showing three letters, each in a different colour. Players must shout out a relevant word beginning with the letter whose colour matches the colour of the category card. The first to do so wins the card and the player with the most cards at the end wins the game.

 At GBG HQ we have a rule that you cannot repeat a word – but with younger players you may not want to be quite so strict!
