    is this ok?

    As children, we were encouraged by our parents to play Scrabble, usually on wet Sunday afternoons. Accusations of cheating when picking out letters and the use of made up words, due appear in the next edition of the OED, brought many games to a premature end. Another game played was Lexicon, playing cards that had letters on them . I didn't have a clue as to the rules and that normally ended in chaos also.

    Boozle, note that Lexicon is played with cards with letters on them.

    'Playing cards' means a pack of cards in hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades from the ace to the king.
