The Forbidden Vowels

The players seat themselves and are questioned by the leader of the game and must answer without bringing in a word containing a forbidden vowel. Say the vowel “a” is forbidden, the leader asks-

“Are you fond of playing the piano?”

The answer “Yes, very much,” would be correct as the words do not contain the letter “a.” But if the answer were “Yes, and I am fond of singing too,” the speaker would have to pay a forfeit Any vowel may be forbidden, or if the player choose to make the game very difficult, two vowels may be forbidden. Say “a” and “e” are forbidden, and the question is, “Will your father be late home?” “I do not know” would be a correct answer.
