I was playing the 'Association and common letters' game recently and for the umpteenth time someone didn't play to the rules.

This is usually the result of confusion between 2 games or just getting carried away.

Anyway, it gave me the idea of an 'Association and No common letters' game. Well, of course, that wouldn't really work because a player could use up all of the vowels and the next player would have nowhere to go. So how about Association with no common consonants?

If you do manage not to use any common letters at all you earn extra Brownie points !

Time will tell if it's viable as a game, or if anyone gives a tinker's cuss about it, but I'll start the ball rolling.

Brownie --> Guide

Guide --> Scout

Scout --> honour

JJ must've been mighty tired: He didn't see that IMac already used wave.
It's not like him to repeat a word so quickly, soooo, I'll play off Tia's post of surf ===>
