Educational Games Planting A Garden

( Educational, Guessing, Literature, Mystery, Pen and Paper )

Each player is provided with a sheet of paper and a pencil. The game consists in one player writing down something that he has planted and the next player stating what came up. Anything may be planted though the questioner must have in mind something that could come up from what he writes. He must sign his initials. The names of the plants that come up must bear some direct relation punning or otherwise to the things planted.

For example a player writes “I planted a kitten what came up ” The paper is handed to the next player who writes “kitty willows.”

After the questions are written the papers are collected and redistributed and each writes an answer to the question he has drawn. They are then collected again and the hostess reads the questions and answers. Any question not answered must be replied to by the player who wrote it. Examples follow —
