In Monogramz, 30 lettered dice are shaken into a tray which divides them into 15 sets of two. Each player's objective is then to list names of celebrities with the same initials as each 2-letter monogram. When the hourglass timer runs out, the lists are scored and unique names earns the player points. Special symbols on some of the faces of the dice denote the following categories that the celebrities' names must belong to: Authors & Artists; Entertainers; Athletes; and World Leaders. Although these symbols restrict the choice of category, regarding letters they act as wild cards. There is also a further symbol denoting "Wild!", meaning any letter, any category. The game ends after a set number of rounds, or when a player reaches a set number of points.
