The following came to me in a flash while reading one of the joke lists .
Instructions and delivery are simple and intriguing. Do word pairs on different colored papers, the left column in yellow and the right in blue, for example. Then, have pairs of people try to either identify or simply find their partner.
Explain to your group:
An Anagram is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of a word or phrase. There are pairs of cards among you of related words from the same anagram.
The letters can be unscrambled so that you can make your partner's word. Or you can simply talk to everybody. Find your partner!
