Description Edit | History

Based on the classic game show that began in 1961, with many editions printed starting in 1962. Each edition featured a different set of words, although later anniversary editions used words from previous sets.

The object is for one person to get their teammate to say the password given a one-word clue for 10 points. Each time a clue is given, the other player can guess the password; if they get it right, the team scores. If they get it wrong, the other team gets to try for 9 points. This goes back and forth, with the word value continuing to decrease, until A) the word is guessed; B) ten clues are given without a correct guess; or C) the password is said by a clue-giver, in which case the word is thrown out.

Hyphenated words (i.e., "lovey-dovey") are considered two words, and hence are inadmissible.

4 Password list v1.1
Password list v1.3 An Excel spreadsheet featuring 3,250 Passwords, from "abacus" to "zucchini". Each word has a random number next to it so you can shuffle the list. To do that, click any number in column A, then click either Sort icon. It's easy to add your own words to the list. Just follow these steps: 1. Type the words you want to add into column B. 2. Click the last number in column A. 3. Put the cursor on the little black square in the lower-right corner of the cell pointer (that's the heavy outline around the active cell), then drag it straight down next to the last word you entered. If you've done it right, all the numbers will have changed, and new numbers will appear next to the words you've entered.
