No repetitions are allowed and to make it more fun a particular theme can be drawn out to make it more challenging like countries, animals, birds, cities, etc. However, no proper nouns are allowed until and unless it goes with the theme of the game such as countries and cities.
Detectives: This can be played by many people where one is (or two are) assigned the role of the detective, one is Mr.X the murderer and the rest are civilians. The objective of Mr.X is to steal from all the civilians which is done by winking at them and the civilian has to announce that he’s been robbed without naming Mr.X, and the objective of the detective is to catch Mr.X before he robs all the civilians. This is a very fun game and is most enjoyed by everybody from adults to kids. The roll assigning for selecting Mr.X, detective and civilian is undertaken through randomly picking close chits.
