    This is an old game in which players use letter tiles to spell the phrase "BUTTON, BUTTON, WHO HAS THE BUTTON?" The tiles contain all the letters in this phrase (including extras), the punctuation marks (commas and question mark), blank tiles (which are useless), and a tile with a picture of a button on it. The tiles are shuffled and dealt evenly to all the players.

    On your turn, you play as many tiles as you can to spell out the phrase line-by-line. If you don't have a play, you may draw a tile from the player on your left, and should this tile be the desired letter, you may place it and continue playing from your hand. Points are scored as a line is completed.

    The word "BUTTON," together with the comma makes up the first (and second) line, and scores 10 points for the player playing the comma. The words "WHO" "HAS" "THE" make up the third, forth and fifth line, and score 5 points for the player playing the the last letter in each word respectively. The word "BUTTON?" makes up the sixth line and scores 10 points to the player playing the question mark. The tile with the picture of a button makes up the seventh line and is worth 20 points. The first player to score 100 points is the winner.
