BIBLE CHARACTERS No. i
A character is chosen by the company in the absence of one player, who, upon his return, is told, for example, that the person selected is "a woman of the Old Testament, whose eagerness to secure a blessing for her son brought sorrow instead of joy."
Each person is then questioned in turn, and each has chosen a new character, the initial letters of which in succession will spell the word originally decided upon.
