Words From a Word
Sent in by: Olga of Spokane, WA

Create as many words as you can out of one word.

To play, pick a word, the longer the better.

Players or teams of players try to make as many words as they can in one minute out of the letters of the word.

So, if the word is monster, they could make store, on, one, rest.

Here are some rules: a letter can only be used as often as it appears in a word. So, since monster has only one "e," it can only be used once in a word.

Also, proper nouns, like names of people or states, don't count.

The player or team that makes the most words wins.
