ITZI is all about speed! Be the first to get rid of all five of your letter cards.
Everyone is dealt five letter cards. Players should look at BOTH sides of their letter cards, and can either hold their cards in their hands or lay them out on the table.
Place the stack of ITZI cards in the center.
Someone flips over the top ITZI card and puts it in the center for all to read. (Or someone can read it out loud.)
Players quickly look at their letter cards (both front and back) and call out a word that answers the ITZI card and that starts with one of their letters. For example, lets say the ITZI card reads, Itz an animal. If a player has a letter card with a K on it, they could call out kangaroo and at the same time smack down that letter card on top of the ITZI card.
