The Forbidden Letter

The idea of this game is to try how many sentences can he spoken without containing a certain letter which has been agreed upon supposing, for instance, the letter “F” is not to be introduced, the first player might ask:

“Is this a new game to you?”

The second player could answer: “Oh, no! I played it years ago when quite a youngster.” He would perhaps turn to the third player, and ask: “You remember it, do you not?”

The third player might answer: “Yes, but we used to play it differently.”

This player, having used a word with an “F” in it, must pay a forfeit and remain out. The answers must be given at once, without hesitation, and the player who avoids for the greatest length of time using a word containing the forbidden letter wins the game.
