Here’s a game you can teach your more advanced students, and we can play here in order to show members who visit this thread at some future time how to play … and to sharpen our wits!

The first player writes (or says) two words (proper nouns are okay). The second player uses the second word of the phrase to create the next phrase, but only thinking of the second word (not using it) to link it to another implied two-word phrase, and so on.

Three-word phrases are not permitted, nor one or four or any other number. The response must be two words (hyphenated words are okay).

Example:

Player 1: green apple

Second player thinks ‘apple jelly’, but does not say this, only uses the second word that s/he is only thinking along with some other new word. Hence:

Player 2: jelly bean

Third player thinks ‘bean salad’ so says

Player 3: salad days

Player 4: off season

So, the fourth player was thinking ‘days off’, but says ‘off season’.

Do you see? If everyone is ready I will begin with ...

(See next post please)

-Addendum 9 Nov. 2014 - as the original poster I have been asked to clarify that players do not fudge things by using three word phrases. For instance if the player prior to you wrote 'sweet melons' you cannot write anything like 'without seeds' or 'are delicious' because this would then constitute a three- or four-word phrase that depends on the word or words prior as well as the following word to make any sense. It is against the rules because the two-word phrase 'melons without' has no independent meaning. The second word of the prior player's phrase and the first word of your couplet must be able to stand alone. That is the challenge and the object of the game. Thanks for playing. Smile
