    Word chain game!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Blue_Lotus, Jul 28, 2011.

    I love these games so I thought since I have yet to see this one, I would add it to our endless supply of games! :D

    Rules:
    Use the last 2 letters of the word in the last post to start your new word. If you can't start a word with the last 2 letters, use the last 3 letters. If you are unable to use the last two letters or the last three then you may scramble the last two or just use the last one.

    As a last resort if no word in any language you know uses the last three (3) or two(2) letters then you may start a new run using a new word.

    Please leave a word that has possibilities!

    Example:

    Post, Oder

    Reply, Eraser

    Or...

    Post, Kitten

    Reply, Entity

    First word Onomatopoeia (words that describe sounds , like POW, whoosh, pop, zing, etc.)

    * It would be nice if you would add the Definition as well for those who do not speak English, or if the word is from another language.

    Idealy yes, but if the last word is unuseable than you may use either the last 3 letters or just the last letter if that won't work.

    Iambic - (Consisting of a short syllable followed by a long one, or of an unaccented syllable followed by an accented; as, an iambic foot.)

    Ice - (Water or other fluid frozen or reduced to the solid state by cold; frozen water. It is a white or transparent colorless substance, crystalline, brittle, and viscoidal.)
