Dictionary Game

Postby Ponder Stibbons » Tue Sep 22, 2009 3:26 am

I read in one of the forums about a game where you take a word from the dictionary and add, remove or change 1 of the letters and give the new word a new meaning.
Heres a new version, you give a word, the next person makes the new one. Then he/she/it/the librarian gives antoher word for the next person.

And no making real words. :lol: :twisted:
Eg. sarcasm.
sarchasm - the distance between a person who makes a wit and the person who doesnt get it.

And............
Start!!!

Word: Smoker

I've moved this thread from the Broken Drum to the Games thread as it will be easier to find here.

I'm confused. Are you admitting that you are a tortoise, Tony??? Image
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

It was meant to put a stop to noise pollution in the Ramtops while increasing the work force in Ankh-Morpork . It apparently back-fired and Vimes is now being chased by nanny ogg.

Bloister originally the correct spelling for Blister. But after the writers of the Magna Charta missed the o in bloister, blister was made by royal law the correct spelling. During the English civil war Bloister was used again as the correct spelling by Parliament. But after the death of Cromwell Blister was again made the right spelling by Charles II in 1662.
