Word Game
« on: February 15, 2005, 09:13:17 AM »

[spam]Make sure you give a description of the word you list. E.G. Crydee - City in the Western realm on the sea, this is where Pug grew up.[/spam]

This is a spam thread. Please read the rules on posting in spam threads here.

I'm going to act every bit the newbie I am now, and try and start a game. It almost worked in the chat room, but not quite. Perhaps a forum is a better place for it.

OK, the premise is very simple.
We start with a word, then the next person thinks of a word beginning with the last letter of the previous word.

All words are to be 'Feist Based' eg. locations, characters etc. No loosely descriptive words like 'beautiful' with the reasoning being "Well, Anita is beautiful". You're not limited to single word answers. So use the full name of a person/place/battle if you think the last letter will be more challeging.


EDIT: To try to freshen up the game a little, a new rule has been added (see post #1318 on page 33). From now on, not only must the first letter of your word be the same as the last letter of the previous, but from now on you must also give a brief write up for that word.

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]Example: Irabek - A small city in the Westlands of Novindus, it was the second city assaulted by the Emerald Queen's army. Lent its name to the Forest of Irabek - darker and more fearful than the Green Heart - which lay between the Ratn'gary and the Sothu mountains.[/quote](Note: By posting in this thread, you allow the Hall to use your answers in the Encyclopedia if we so choose.)



Let us begin.

First word (Nice easy one to start with):

"FEIST"

You know the Feist Word Association? that is a Spam thread, kinda like wat you are starting, up. Usually the rules are your not allowed to post for 24 hours, just so ppl dont just post alot for the sake of it. But just leave this thread as it is, and when a Admin comes on, they will change it to a Spam thread, i like the idea of it, but there has to be rules. Read the Rules on Spam threads at http://hallofworlds.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=235

Hope this stays open!

Kay, this is designated a spam thread. Everyone make sure you read the rules on spam threads here. Those who posted before me are okay for today, but anyone posting after will be subject to warnings if they over post.
