About 4 years ago I lent a "friend" a game I had bought in an outlet store. Needless to say that "friend" has disappeared with my game. I teach special ed and would like to use the game in my class but can't even remember the name of the game.

The game came boxed with a set of approx. 8 X 10 inch photos, a plastic stand and a pad of sheets that had the letters of the alphabet with lines to write a word on after each letter. The photos were various scenes and rooms (kitchen, library, living room, etc.) The idea of the game was to look at the picture and write the name of items in the photo that started with each letter. After a minute or so, the players would compare sheets and unique entries would gain points. Items could be called a variety of things so as to attempt to have a different entry than your opponent (ie, a female could be a lady, woman, girl, mother, etc.).

If someone could help me identify the game maybe I could locate a copy of the game. Thanks for your interest.

Just realized that -- I have it on the tip of my tongue as well. I remember seeing the game on a geeklist a few weeks ago.

my guess is actually that the game is Picture Picture.

Good game.
I own it and its nice to play occasionally so that we haven't memorized the pictures.

I would like to get Scrutineyes as well, and Kaleidos also fits this category.

Thanks. These are the first clues I have and I will work on both suggestions! Happy New Year to all.
