Process of Elimination (chat)

(Introduced by Gabby)

A target word, usually five to eight letters in length, is chosen. A player finds an answer word/phrase containing at least one instance of every letter in the target word. For each letter in the target word the player removes one instance of the same letter in the answer. The player removes any spaces but keeps the altered answer's remaining letters in their original order. The player presents the altered answer. So for the target word LEAGUE, a player might present the clue:


The other players then have to come up with the answer EAU DE COLOGNE.
