INTRODUCTIONS
This absurd game has no "excuse for being" except that it is apt to create very spontaneous laughter when the players really enter into its spirit. One feels con­strained to apologise for its introduction. It simply consists of plays upon words. One is supposed to be making introductions, giving the names of a gentleman and lady, which are but parts of words—the completion being revealed by the presentation of a third member of the family. Each person in turn introduces a group of three, or the players offer one as their wits may serve.
examples:
Mr. and Mrs. Fortune and Miss Fortune (Misfortune).
Mr. and Mrs. Land and Mary Land (Maryland).
Mr. and Mrs. Harmonic and Phil Harmonic (Phil­harmonic) .
