I Spy

Players guess trying to find or identify a specific object.

I spy is a guessing game usually played in families with young children. The game is used partly to assist in both observation, and in alphabet and color familiarity. I spy is often played as a car game as well.

One person starts by choosing an object (perhaps a "cow") and says "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with the letter C". The other players look around and suggest things it might be: "Crow" (no), "Car" (no), "Cloud" (no), "Cow" - yes. The person who guesses correctly gets one point and also gets to choose the next object.

When played in a car, a family need to decide beforehand what to do about items within the car (usually excluded), and things that are no longer visible. (The field with the cows is a mile back - usually permitted, but the "I spy"er has to say "I can't see it any more" and "I can see it now").

A slightly more challenging version uses phrases - "I spy something starting with B A W C" for "Black and white cow".

Another very popular variation of this game is to play using colors, such as 'I spy something that is green'. The "I spy"er must be sure to tell all of the colors in the object.

There is also a series of picture riddle books called "I Spy".
