1. One player leaves the room while the other players choose a word which is common and can be easily guessed. The first player returns and tries to discover the hidden word by asking each player a different question. The answers must include the word, except that the hidden word is replaced by the phrase "coffee pot".

2. For example, in a game where the hidden word is "bridge", the conversation could be:

    Question 1: What did you do on your last holiday?
    Answer 1: I went to the beach. On the way I drove over a long, tall coffee pot.
    Question 2: Do you have a pet?
    Answer 2: I have a dog that I take for a walk along the river and over the coffee pot that leads to the park.
    Question 3: What is your favourite movie?
    Answer 3: My favourite is the old war movie, "Coffee Pot on the River Kwai."

The answers do not need to be truthful but must answer the question and include the hidden word.
