Welcome to aQuick Word...

...where words need to come quickly to you!

Given a category and a letter, come up with a word or phrase that starts with the given letter and is associated with the given category before timer runs out. Team holding iPhone or iPod Touch when buzzer goes off loses round.

To play, split up into 2, 3, or 4 teams with at least 1 person per team. Sit in a circle so that you alternate teams in a pattern. (e.g. With 3 teams and 2 players/team, you would have a circle of team 1, team 2, team 3, team 1, team 2, team 3.)
Make sure you set up the Settings correctly with the # of teams, # of points.

First player starts by simply touching the "Touch to Start" phrase. A new category appears. If everyone agrees to play that category, then the first player touches the category again and a letter will appear. The timer now starts. Quickly say a word or phrase that starts with the given letter and that is associated with the given category. If your response is correct, then quickly pass the iPhone or iPod Touch to the next player and they touch the existing letter to get a new letter.

The responses have to start with the given letter, but the association with the category can be somewhat creative.

Category Letter Valid Responses
--------------- ------ ---------------
Heavy Objects F Freight Train, Fiat, Fat Person
Mammals H Hyena, Humans, Hairy, Have Warm Blood

If a majority of teams agree that a response is not correct, that player must quickly give another response.

No repeating of some other player's response within the same round. Player must give another response if they repeat someone else's response.

Whichever team is holding the iPhone or iPod Touch when the buzzer sounds loses that round. So once you say a correct response, pass quickly! (We do not advocate throwing or tossing of iPhones or iPod Touches.)

The team that lost the round starts the next round by touching the Continue button. (You must give a team a point before continuing.)

The letters "Q", "X" and "Z" have been purposely left out.

For games with only 2 teams, the team that won the round gets a point. The first team to reach the 7, 10 or 13 points wins.
For games with 3 or 4 teams, the losing team gets a point. The first team to reach the 7, 10 or 13 points loses. The winner is the team with the lowest score. If multiple teams had the lowest score, you can play sudden death until only 1 team emerges victorious.

* Up to 4 teams
* Play until 7, 10, or 13 points.
* Hundreds of categories.
* Random timer with no visual or auditory clue as it gets closer to the end, so stalling is not beneficial.
* Much cheaper than buying the board game!
