How to Play. Turn the record on and hand the orange to Player A, giving a vocabulary category, e.g.:'Clothes!'. Player A passes the orange to Player B, saying a word of the given topic, e.g.:'Trousers!'. Player В, in his/her turn, hands the orange to Player C with another word and so on. A player, who is holding the orange when the music stops, leaves the game. After that, you turn the record on again, set another vocabulary category and the orange continues its circle trip. The game lasts as long as only the winner remains.
