Hey guys...just posting this to reemphasize.
This is a game I've started on every board I've been on and I still love it. I'll post a four letter word, then the next changes one letter to make a new word. You can not rearrange the letters and you cannot use a word that has previously been used.
First word: play
1) No, names cannot be used unless they can be found in the English dictionary.
Xandi used the word Bant, which I did find in the online dictionary I use.
2) It doesn't matter how many mistakes you make, as long as you are making an obvious attempt to follow the rules. The game itself is not as easy as it sounds, and its even harder if English is not your first language. Legionary used the word moil, which very well may be a word in his language, but I didn't find it in the online dictionary I use. If, however, he can show me the word in another English dictionary, I'll allow it.
3) I can't always get on everyday, so if anyone catches a mistake, like a repeated word, or a word that doesn't exist, or a word that has changed more than one letter, please feel free to restart the game. I'm restarting because I found several of the above in the first page of 4 pages, and didn't feel like reading through all 4 pages.
4) The English Dictionary I use is http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ . That doesn't mean you have to use this one. It's just the one I use. Feel free to use your favorite.
No one person is in charge of catching the "oopsies", as the lovely MzNurse said. So if you see one just start a new game. -Smiles- I saw a couple. Pass and Piss were repeated twice, so it restarts again.
New Word is:Jolt
