icon Hmm... I don't know (+1)  
This is an internet version of the travelling game whose name I don't know, in which one person picks a category and comes up with a word that starts with the letter A and pertains to the category. Although it may seem childish, I have seen this game gets interesting once someone picks the category "Quantum Physics" or something crazy. Okay, so the rules: I'll pick two categories and the first word that corresponds to one of the two categories. The next poster comes up with a word that starts with B, and so on. Once the alphabet is done the 27th poster picks a new set of two categories that start with the same letter and comes up with an "A" word. The sequence of turns will be based on the player list below, so if the last poster was #3 and you're #4, it's your turn! If it's your turn and you don't post your word in 24 hours, I'll assume you give up and you die. The winner is the last one standing! (just like the game)I'd like to have around 10 +/- 16 players, so please post here if you'd like to play!

Current Category: Board Games

Current Person On the Hotseat: kie

Current Letter: Q (for a point) or R

Players:
1. kie
2. Elfstone
3. bdwing

Vaporized Players:
1. noma
2. Lamkin

I'll play; sounds like fun (though maybe a bit slow, I would change the limit to 24 hours)

Word games are fun. I remember a particularly good one and searching found it here.

Why don't you just start this z? - I suspect people will join in as an when they can, once it is up and running.

Okay, so I have officially changed the rules so that the player has a choice of two categories (so as to avoid frustration): now the category is *insert drumroll* Video Games and Vichyssoise (name a type of soup)

This game is meant to be a tad more challenging than the traditional categories of fruits, vegetables, and Old McDonald's Farm Animals, and research *is* allowed. Good luck! :)

Conker's Quest.

We can all just hesitate on 'D' if Elfstone would like to participate.

Oh, I see. Order.

Well, disregard my C, although I do feel that this game would be more successful without an enforced order or player list.

I think the game does need to have a specific order. With games like this, if someone can't think of an answer for a letter or gives an incorrect one, the next person up has to come up with one or also be "out". If we don't have an order, everyone could just avoid a troublesome letter.

So if I may suggest we continue in the order established so far, with stigant going next for the letter "E" and then continuing with the list as it was.

New order:

1. zwetschenwasser
2. noma
3. dex stewart
4. Elfstone
5. stigant
6. lamkin
7. timo006

Ahh! Crazy mad dash of craziness!

I like orders. I think it makes the game more fun. (Ahhhh! I can't find a stupid game name and I'm dead in 3.8 minutes!!!!) Also, I'm making Robobob3000 number 8 on the list. Think stigant, think! ;)

I'll be danged...I've changed my mind and now concur with our beloved schnitzengruber's recommendation that the game should have some order. :pope

Oops, I forgot my prepared speech:

"Schnitzengruber? You dare call an upstanding citizen of high moral standards the vile, depraved, horrific name of schnitzengruber! Were I a child again (wait, I am a child) I would gleefully bask in the ridicule and jeering that would accompany the degrading of a man (or child) to the base stature of the schnitzengruber. The creatures, vile and dirty, putrify the atmosphere with poison, musk, and refuse to wear eau de parfume. Their smelly eau de toilette destroys the happiness in our happy society. Once again, I demand recompense, compensation, and more recompense for this outrage. It is an insult to the very fiber of society, to the core of life itself! You should be ashamed of yourself for your base, noxious, and sordid comment. I rest my case."

-Court Proceedings at the Zwetschenwasser Courthouse for Acceptable Names and Variations of Names for the Entities of High Moral Value and Base Moral Standing-

Sorry Lamkin, I couldn't resist. ;)
