    Please be more specific. Does one make a sentence from these words? Does the next poster leave words for the next?

    The first thing unusual I noticed after eating the mushrooms, was an elephant playing a guitar. He stood and played like normal for a minute, then jumped up on the table...

    in a bubble that will not pop.
    I sat at the table for a minute, listening to the elephant-man playing on his guitar.

    Any minute now that elephant-looking girl with the guitar is going to come to this table and wind up in my bed if these beers have anything to say about it.

    Apologies for the late reply. But Cacian here has got the objective right. You need to find ways in which some or all of the words are related. Maybe a common word or theme. For example: the word 'INDIAN'. An Indian guitar is called a sitar. An Indian elephant has small ears. An Indian minute is more like an hour.

    Here's another relationship using the concept of 'valuable': an elephants tusk is valuable, an antique table is valuable, Elvis's guitar is valuable, a minute of time is valuable.

    I see...
    An elephant Tusk is valuable no longer applies because it is illegal...so apart fromt that yes..
    Ok do you want to propose another set?

    Why is everybody doing sentences? That's not the challenge.
    All of these are, or can be, nouns.
    Illegality makes things like ivory even more valuable. Ever heard of the black market?

    An elephant can live more than 70 years. The standard UK billards table is the seven foot model. The acoustic Russian guitar has seven strings. Seven minutes in heaven.

    the first thing/link that struck me was time. Elephant dies with time, minute=time, guitar plays on beat= time, and time-table of life. But maybe that is because I feel that I am running out of time by not working on my writing ideas that are glaring at me!!!

    for the car-sun-candle-electricity-camera, only thing that comes to mind is technology.

    They all run/depend on some sort of fuel: sun-hydrogen, car-petrol, candle-wax, electricity-coal, oil, gas, wind, water, solar, etc, camera-battery.
    Where did you get these words from? They don't seem to be too random. Try using an online random word generator next time.

    I really like the way you used the factor of 7 here. Impressive general knowledge. Did you know all these facts or did you look them up?

    The point of the game is to come up a random set of words and let people find their own links, not have one answer.
