Player А: My name is Potap.

You: How do you spell that, please?

Player А: P-O-T-A-P.

Player В: What would you be if you was an animal?

Player А: I'd be a panda!

Player А gets 1 point.

Player С: What would you be if you was a tree?

Player А: I don't know!

Player С: You'd be a pine!

Player А gets 1 point.

and so on, every time naming a word, beginning with the same letter as the name of Player A. If an asking player does not know an answer to his/her question, nobody gets any points. The round lasts as long as each player asked Player A. In the second round, these are Player B's turn to introduce himself/herself and Player C's right to ask the first question and so on. The game lasts as long as each player is introduced. The winner is the player to get the most points.
