Knit Wit is a word game along the lines of Scattergories, with players
trying to think up unique answers to particular categories in order to
score points, but instead of using fixed categories, players generate
their own categories while playing the game.
To set up, each player takes numbered spools and looped strings based on
the number of players, along with an answer sheet. A number of bonus
buttons, which have 1-4 holes, are stacked on the table, again based on
the number of players. Going clockwise around the table, each player
(after the first) places one loop on the table so that it surrounds
exactly one spool, then draws a word tag from the box and attaches it to
this loop, then places one spool in one section of loop(s) that has no
spool in it. (Think of a Venn diagram; two overlapping circles form
three sections, with one section having both circles in common and two
sections being part of only one circle.)
Once all of the spools have been placed, everyone races to think of
words, names, or phrases for each spool based on the word tags
associated with that spool. If a spool has three loops around it, for
example, it has three words associated with it, and your answer must
relate to those words in some manner.
As soon as someone has finished or can't think of more answers, they
grab the topmost button on the stack (the one with the most holes). Once
the final button is grabbed, players can't write more answers. Players
then compare answers, crossing out those they have in common with
someone else, then scoring points for the remaining answers; each answer
is worth as many points as the number of loops around the spool with the
same number. Buttons are worth as many points as the number of holes
they have, and whoever has the highest score wins.
