How to Play. Player A comes to the front of the class and answers his/her new classmates’ questions in such a way that the keyword begins with the same letter as his/her name. The game may start like this: 
You: What's your name?
Player A: My name's Evelina.
You: How do you spell that, please?
Player A: E-V-E-L-I-N-A.
Player B: Where are you from?
Player A: I'm from Egypt.
Player C: What's your job?
Player A: I'm an engineer.

If Evelina can not name a colour, beginning with the letter E, she gets 2 points by the number of her answers. Now it is Player B’s turn to come to the front of the class and so on. The game lasts as long as each player has introdeced themself. The winner is the player to get the most points.
