Hi,

What's the game called in which every time someone makes a mistake they get a letter? A person has lost the game if they can spell out the entire word, e.g. s-k-a-t-e.

My question probably isn't that clear, but I wouldn't know how else to put it.

Thank you for your answers!

Isn't there a game you play with basketball like that called "horse"? I try to make a basket standing here, and if I do but you miss, you get an H. Something like that?

Hi,

I don't know that game.

In the game 'Hangman', you spell that word out by making mistakes, and thus lose the game.

Well, it's not exactly hangman Clive. Thank you, anyway . Emotion: smile

I'll give another example.

Setting: two kids + 1 ball + one brick wall

- One of them kicks the ball against the wall.
- the other one now return the ball by shooting it against the wall again back to the other person.
- one of them now fails to kick the ball back
- he/she gets a letter (B)
- after that, the letters A-L-L follow until the word BALL is spelt.
- if that's the case, it's game over.
