Don't let us keep secrets from you! This game requires you to catch words before they fall to the ground and file them in the correct secret drawer. Each drawer is devoted to a category. You can choose to see each drawer's category in advance or to discover it yourself as you begin filing the words. If you catch a word and place it in the wrong drawer, it will simply disappear (much like misplaced files in real life). This means that if you choose not to know the drawers' categories, you must discover them by trial and error.
