OK.

My last word game mutated into a different game, probably because I did not explain the rules well enough.

The other game is fun, but I think this one might be more challenging.

So here are the RULES:

1) Check the word from the previous poster.
2) ADD or SUBTRACT a letter from the previous word, to make a new word.
3) The resulting word MUST BE a word.
4) You CANNOT change a letter in your turn
5) You CANNOT substitute a letter or CHANGE the word completely.

Things to think about: The next person will have to make a word out of your word. The goal is to keep it going as long as possible. If we actually get stuck, we'll start with a new word. We're writers, get creative and keep it going!

EXAMPLE of how the game might progress:

SLINGERS
--
SINGERS
--
SINGES
--
SINGS
--
SINS
--
SIN
--
IN
--
TIN
--
etc.


The first word is:

MATCH

Jersey Chick and I must've posted at the same time. So to make it work, I'll take her "FACE" and go back to "ACE" and then to:

AE

*Had to get rid of that "C." AE is a word, it's a noun. Check a dictionary.

Doesn't JC's face work with your ace? Why go back to change anything?

This game really is simple, but it's starting to sound complicated.

It is a simple game. Don't worry about my explanation there. I had already posted another word. I was just trying to make it all fit.

The last word was A

The next word is:

AD

I'm not worried but was trying to help get this game started correctly based upon the explanation you gave in the original post.

So I'm wondering, when I said mace and you said ace and JC said face, where did we go wrong? It seemed to follow the rules you outlined. Why go back to ace and turn it into ae?

Because i had already posted the AE when JC posted FACE. Instead of erasing AE, I just edited my post to work off of JC's. There was nothing wrong with it. It was an edit because of a computer glitch. That's all.

We're still on AD.

When I look at this page, JC's face is posted before you changed the word from ace to ae. That must be where the confusion sets in. I think. Hell, I don't know. In your quest to simplify this game, you may have made it harder to understand, at least for me.

Anyway, good luck with the game.

And I'm sorry for that. The issue came up when JC and I must have posted at the same time.

But the game is back on track. Truelyana has already chimed in.

The word we're on is:

HARD
