 Post subject: Compound Word Chains
PostPosted: Sun Jun 16, 2002 4:00 am 
Ok. the goal here is to take a word, then find another word that you can tack onto it to make a compound. Then the next person will take that word (that you added) to make another compound word. My wife and I ended up playing this game during a 2 hour drive today.
An example.

Airplane Pilot
Pilot pen
Pin point
point blank
blank page
.. and so on...

note that they don't have to be spelled the same. ;)

Addeded info, You can repeat the same WORD twice, but not the same compound word, for example. if Pilot came around again, i could not say Pen as the next word. but I could say pen after "felt" :)

Also, We should set some sort of scoring idea, X points for everyone participating in a chain with X compound words. Of course, the points don't matter anyway. ;)

your first word, is
Brain

But pin and pen aren't the same word at all...only if you've got one of those wacky-crack dialects that can't tell the difference.

Anyway...

"Wave"

->

"length"
