Chinese Whispers

Postby joo » Mon Jan 21, 2008 5:22 pm

This is kind of like word association, but it involves users PMing each other. A series of users registers for the game by posting in this topic, then I send a word via PM to the first person who posts, then they send a similar word (preferably a synonym) to the next person, and so on until it gets to the end of the list. The last user PMs back to me, and I'll post the resulting word.

- A series of users is decided by the order in which they post to this topic
- I will make a post signalling to begin when I feel there are enough people
- A new game starts once I've posted the result.
- Give your Private Message the subject "Chinese Whispers"

So, users, register!

Synonym and similar sounding are two different things. But anyway, this sounds like it's worth a shot, I'm in.

I'm in if the rules are clarified somewhat.

I'd rather go for only synonyms (although the meanings don't have to be identical, just similar)

That's what I meant! :evil: since it's text-based, homophones wouldn't make sense...

I can give it a go.

So, I'd be receiving a word from formerly known as hf and posting a word with similar meaning to the next new poster? Is that right?

Okay, once I get enough - say 8 or 9 people - registered, I will send a word via PM to SekoETC. Then Seko will send another word with that has the same meaning to Dust Puppy, etc, until the last person sends it back to me, which upon recieving, I will post and start a new game.

I gave an example... or if you mean the words, then:

angry => incensed => passionate => excited => thrilled => pleased => happy => glad => relieved => calm => relaxed => comfortable => restful => sleepy => tired => restless => anxious => worried => depressed => sad

So you see from changing a word many times, it can turn into one of the opposite meaning
