Great! Here s a brief description (which you can download some other time ... after i have uploaded it Wink)

The game is called Associations. Its veeeery popular here in Serbian quiz shows.

What you do is associate words.

There are four columns A, B, C, D with four boxes each that you open (e.g. A4, B3, etc.) I give you the hidden word and you try to guess what the answer to the column is.

(e.g. A1 blue, A2 deep, A3 horse, A4 ship = the word common to each of them is SEA (blue SEA, deep SEA, SEA horse, a ship on the SEA)

The goal is then to associate the answers to all the four columns and get the final answer.

Now, Zora, you have to give me the first association you have with the word. And then if you re wrong, Silke opens another box (I suggest the B column) and tries to see what s common for the two words.

Wrong answer, but good thinking. Silke open a box.

I suggest that you either open two boxes at a time, as this is very slow (you don t refresh often, probably cos you re multitasking Wink) So either of you can open a box. The idea is to just show you how it s played.
