For a brief description, see http://www.uni-muenster.de/imperia/md/content/allgemeine_sprachwissenschaft/forschen/lingtypolangdoc/bowerman_abstract.pdf

The Language Games resource site provides game descriptions and downloadable stimulus pictures for semi-structured elicited production games and elicited production experiments. Amongst other things, it contains a description of the “Language in a Bag” toolkit for the creation of language games. You can also find free downloadable picture materials (e.g. for the elicitation of constructions with adjectives) on this site.
