Quick, quick, find words fast! Find words for images!

63 picture tiles are spread out face-down, you should use seven tiles to form a row in correct alphabetical order of the pictures.

You grab always with one hand only one picture tile at a time. If you can use it you add it to your row; if not, you put it back face-down. The rules for adding a picture to your row are: You must add pictures from left to right, you cannot relocate pictures once they have been placed and you cannot insert a picture between pictures already placed.

Images on the tiles are up for interpretation, a ring can be a ring, jewelry, gem, gold, wedding ring or engagement ring; a duck can be a duck, a water fowl, a bird or a Beijing Duck, depending on the letter you need. It is also possible to use the same first letter twice; in this case the second letter in the word decides on the order. If you are first to achieve a correct row of images, you stop the round and score seven points if you are correct, but none at all if there is a mistake. All other players score the number of correct tiles up to the first mistake.

As a variant you can play in descending alphabetical order or without alphabetical order arrange 10 tiles with different first letters or again seven tiles in which no letter of the previous word can appear in the next one. You can choose a variant in each rounds, and after four rounds you win with most points.

Presto! Presto! Is a cute and challenging variant of word association mechanisms, with demands on your vocabulary, but still a good family game.
