How To Play Alphabet Concentration

This can be played in a pair, a small group or a larger crowd - but the more people there are, the harder it gets!

Players have a conversation where each sentence begins with the next letter of the alphabet. This may seem difficult at first, but improves with practice. If you get stuck, you can also use sounds to start a sentence, for example 'Mmmm' or 'tut-tut'. Here is an example (of a paired conversation):

A: Anyone seen my cat?
B: Black one, with funny eyes?
A: Can't say I remember.
B: Don't tell me you've forgotten what it looks like?
A: Every cat looks the same to me.
B: Fortunately, I found one yesterday
A: Gee, that's great!

If you have a larger group, it'd go a bit like one of those 'story games' where each person adds a new line:

A: Are they anchovies on your pizza?
B: But I like them!
C: Cause you're strange, that's why...
D: Don't you like them?
E: Everyone hates anchovies!
F: For true?
G: Gah! This tastes awful!

And so on. Yes it's corny, but it's also pretty fun once you get into the swing of things!
