The Calculator Game

If you have a pocket calculator, your den can play a spelling bee. The game is based on the fact that when the calculator's display is held upside down, seven of the numbers look like letters of the alphabet. They are:

  • 1 = I
  • 3 = E
  • 4 = H
  • 5 = S
  • 7 = L
  • 8 = B
  • 0 = O

Turn your calculator upside down and enter the digits 3, 3, 8. The display will show "BEE." The object of the Calculator Game is to see how many words a boy can spell in this fashion. (Remind the boys that the words must be "spelled" backward on the calculator.)
