It's a Wiki Wiki Word Game!

Now play WordGameTwo! Now available on N64 and GsixtyThree.

Anyone care to delete the rules discussion seeing as we now have WordGamesWithRules? I'd do it myself, but I'd rather make sure first.

Okay, so there's been a request to actually set some rules, because I've noticed people disliking some of the ways that other people have been posting. The issue is that I see no solution that makes everyone happy, so I think we should choose some rules and start a new one (this one's getting kinda long anyway). So, here are the rules I've come up with:

This game is pointless fun. Rules are unnecessary. I think the half-fudged ones are the most hilarious, because it's so fun to watch them bend over backwards to make things fit. Why not make WordGamesWithRules and leave this be?

Perhaps because a lot of the ones that bend over backwards _still_ don't make things fit, and it's painful to watch them try. Also, some of us who would otherwise participate are anal-retentive enough to be actively bothered by the sillinesses resorted to by others. In addition, it is not as though rules would stifle the creativity displayed by some of the more interesting entries here; it would just make it that much neater when a completely unexpected entry does fit. ...feel free to ignore me, though; I probably sound like a person with a StickUpTheirAss? (or maybe just DouglasHofstadter?). --AndrewSchoonmaker

1) Given a word (n) this word must enitirely be composed of the last few letters of word (n-1) and the first few letters of word (n+1). Thus, each word is entirely from the other two words, and no letters are either changed or removed or added.

2) Given a word (n) this word must begin with the same letters that word (n-1) ends with and it must end with the same letters that word (n+1) begins with. Thus letters can be added, repeated, etc.

3+4) Same as above rules but replace letters with sounds.

Post what people think, or if there are ideas for other rules.
