Green glass door is a word game that can be played anywhere. It is a versatile game where the players try to guess the hidden link behind the phrase spoken by the other player and follow the lead. It can be played while travelling, as a drinking game, party game, or as an ice-breaker.

Before you start playing the game, you will need to set a thumb rule for everyone. It can be something like, “all items that can go through the door must be five-letter long, or all things that can go through the door must have a double letter as in apple or any such thing for that matter. Once you have a few ideas lined up, you can call everyone and begin playing the game.

How is the Green glass door game played?

Once the rules are set, the game starts with one player saying for example, “I can bring a kitten through the door but not a cat”. The two phrases get replaced by the word that abides by the rule that you set while the second phrase goes against the chosen rule.

In the above sentence, the rule was that anything that has a repetition of letters can go through the door. Here, “kitten” fulfills the rule while “cat” does not. The next player has to give a similar example to continue the game. If the second player tries to take anything with no repetition of letters, for example, Hare, through the door, they are out of the game.

The game leader then says, “You cannot take a hare through the door so you are out!

If the game is being played as a drinking game, the person who out has to down his drink.

The game continues till everyone has figured out the rule to be followed. Then, the rule may be changed according to the situation and age group of those playing the game.

The game ends when only one person is left who is the winner. The same person then becomes the leader and starts a new game with a new set of rules. The game can be played for as long as you want with as many players as are present. The more the merrier!

What other parameters can be set by the leader of the game?

The leader of the game can bring a lot of variety to the game and make it more interesting for the players. The difficulty level of the game can also be set as per the age group of the players. Here are a few variations that can be used in the game:

  • An object that ends with letter ‘e’.
  • An object beginning with the first letter of the name of the person sitting on your left.
  • Items that are plural.
  • Singular items.
  • An object that is living.
  • A non-living object.

There is no end to the number of variations you can bring to the game. Just let your imagination flow and see everyone enjoying the green glass door game.
