Tai Chi Chuan is a game of letters in which you must show mental nimbleness to progress but also to withstand the attacks of your opponents.
On your turn, a card is revealed which determines the first letter of all words to come. At this point, you must name a word that starts with this first letter to continue the current challenge. Each newly revealed letter requires the discovery of a new word that includes both this new card and the first one. You alone decide whether to stop and be challenged by the other players with a new card, or whether to continue and risk being short of ideas for words.
Tai Chi Chuan is best with 3-6 players, although it remains playable with only two or more than six. The game is designed to work with the letter distribution patterns of French, but it should play equally well (albeit a bit differently) in English.
