Elimination Letter Hunt
Demonstrate the game with one student. Ask him/her to choose a letter of the alphabet. Draw two columns on the board, one 'Yes' and the other 'No'. Ask the student questions like 'Is it in the word 'fish'?' and write the word in the appropriate column. Keep asking the question with different words and writing them in the appropriate column. After a few questions you should have some idea of what the mystery letter is by looking at the word columns, and make a guess. Let students play in pairs, and to make it snappier give them a limit to the number of words they can say, eg 7, before they make their guess.
