******** RULES ********


Hello everyone :-)


The rules of this game changed in 2014.

The words you choose as answers here must be words that can be found in English dictionaries (this includes proper nouns). Please reject acronyms, nicknames, trademarks and their derivatives. English words can contain hyphens, apostrophes but no space.

The new word you're going to post must contain the first letter of the preceding word immediately followed by the last letter of the preceding word, in that order,

AND


the new word you're going to post must not start/end with either the first or the last letter of the preceding word.




If no valid reply has been posted for at least 24 hours because it looks impossible to find any:

- Anyone, feel free then to be the first to post a message asking a valid reply to be posted by any player (including the poster of the latest answer) within the next 24 hours. Only the first posted message will be taken into account in that context;

- if there's no valid reply after that, the player who posted that message keeps the game going by posting a new word, which must have at least one possible valid reply and which hasn't been previously posted in the active page of this game.

If no word has been posted 24 hours after the end of the 24-hour period, feel free, anyone, to be the first to start a new chain with a new word which must have at least one possible valid reply and which hasn't been previously posted in the active page of this game.


Thank you.

Even if it were a proper noun, it wouldn't be valid (ends with 'x'). Nice try though.


I think it's time to allow acronyms and their derivatives. They can lead to great words:

The value of choice is not in the size of the action but in its effect.
