    The Growing Word Game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by sprirj, Dec 26, 2009.

    Rules:

    The idea is to add a letter to the word in the previous post to create a new word. You must add a letter that creates a new word but also does not create a deadend for the next person... ie no adding 's' to the end for an easy point.

    Here is an example:

    1st person 'i'
    2nd person 'it'
    3rd person 'bit'
    4th person 'bite'


    etc

    So just how long a word can be created....?????


    Here is the 1st word:


    A

    mar (I assume reordering of letters is permitted, since the rules did not specify. Under what conditions do we reset to 1 letter?)
