Elizabeth (Alaska) | 22924 comments This is a game I remember from my childhood. Make a word using the letters in the previous word, but add a letter. You must rearrange the letters - just adding an S or a D isn't allowed.

A sequence might be:

age
gear
rages (gears wouldn't be allowed)

and so on.

First one to post an 8 letter word gets to start the next sequence. If this proves too easy for us (and it might), we'll see if we can think up a variation.

Mikki tirade


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 22924 comments tirade - radiate


message 28: by Joyce (new)

Joyce (js33) | 14813 comments too bad iradiate isn't an an accepted word, but then just adding the i wouldn't do it - the letters have to be scrambled.

does variated work? I was thinking of varigated as in yarn - but I'll try



radiate - variated

I kept getting stuck on that too from variates, but I don't think that variated is a word.


message 30: by Joyce (new)

Joyce (js33) | 14813 comments Websters in line dic. Lists it. I
Does that make it acceptable?

Yes. I looked it up online and one dictionary says that it is a word. I'll let the jury decide.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 22924 comments Maybe we should be a bit relaxed in this one. In any case it's in the "Collaborative International Dictionary of English" and says that lariat as a verb was in Webster's in 1913. Good enough for me.

And it's 8 letters, so Anne you're on deck to start the next one.


message 35: by Barbara (new)

Barbara (BARBHH) | 4042 comments I think it is just a noun, but we don't seem to have many choices. Jury??


message 36: by Mikki (new)

Mikki Don't forget Joyce's effort of variated @ #30...


message 37: by Mikki (new)

Mikki "If this proves too easy for us (and it might), we'll see if we can think up a variation."

So far, this doesn't seem to be the case!

I think this one's too hard. Should I try another one?
