OCTEGORIES
(Groupthink)

Players are given a category and a target letter. Each player must choose an answer fitting the category and featuring the target letter in one of the first eight letter positions (Example: for the category “U.S. States” and the target letter O, a player could choose Oregon, Montana, Florida, Missouri, etc.). Answers are compared and each player scores points based on the number of other players who chose answers with the target letter in the same position; the objective is to choose a position that is chosen by as few other players as possible.  The player with the lowest score wins.
