Full list of guessing games

In the Manner of the Word

The players each write down an adverb, then fold and conceal their slips. In rotation, the players ask the first player to do some­thing in the manner of the adverb: "Dance in the manner of the adverb"; "Speak in the manner of the adverb"; "Cross the floor in the manner of the adverb," etc. If the adverb written were "madly," the first player would do each of these things madly. The other players try to guess the adverb. The correct guesser scores 1.

If no one guesses, after each has asked for one action, the actor scores 1. When the first player has finished, the second player acts his adverb, and so on.

The adverbs may be placed in a container and drawn for, then
acted out as above.
