Every game starts with the same letter and you have to answer the questions (as quickly as possible) that begin with that letter.
The aim is to find an answer that no one else has, so you get bonus points!

The official game comes with a 20-sided die with different letters on it. This letter is the first letter of each of your answers on the category list.
