In Re: “Ghosts”
Ghosts, as “Hide and Seek” cannot be reasonably played in a car while travelling, but “Ghosts”, as a word game can be.
Basically, someone names a letter, any letter, say, for example, “G”. The next person (this can be played with as few as two people) has to add a letter to the first letter, say “h” (all letters have to, ultimately, lead to a “real word”. Adding “x” to a “G” is unacceptable unless you know of a word that starts “Gx”, I don’t). The loser of the game is the one who finally forms a word of at least 4 letters. So, the 3rd person says “o”, the next “s”, and the last, and loser, says “t”. The loser gets a “G” after his/her first loss, an “h” after the second, etc., when they have spelled “Ghost”, they are out of the game, the game continues until all but one have spelled “Ghost”
There is another version of this game called “Superghosts”, in this version the letters can be added to the front as well as the back (1st “G”, 2nd “h” [gh], 3rd “a” [agh}.
