Split up either individually or in patrols. Provide pens and paper as required. To start explain the rules! Someone will read out words phonetically, they have to write down what letter is being said, to answer they must 1st shout out their initials phonetically. They then attempt to solve the word or sentence. If successful reward a point. Once a team has 8 points they win.
