View Full Version : A NEW Word Game


BeastMaster

Based on the success of Riddler's Word Association Thread, I'm starting a new one.

In one of the Black Fleet Crisis books (I can't remember which one), a few New Republic personnel were playing a word game over their ship's intercom. It went like this:

One person says a word. (eg. Tower)

The next person says a word that starts the way the previous word ends. (eg. Error)

(Go by the last syllable.)

(Proper names and non-english words aren't allowed.)

I'll start with

I believe he meant start a new word using whatever letters are in the last syllable of the word he posted, not post a word that rhymes.

I don't much prefer proper nouns, seeing as how any name can be made up to form a word, but I will let this slide.

"st" isn't neccisarily the last syllable, nor are proper names allowed. therefore, a ballot in the black box for ostracize.
