Grey_girl, please remember rule number 1

1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.

That way nobody can dominate the game and therefore steer the words in a direction to their advantage.

This started six pages ago and you're going to take me to task for that? Sheesh. Forget I even tried.

Next time you want to chastise me, have the consideration to PM me. There was no reason to do that in public.

I'm not trying to chastise you, and I am sorry if it seemed that way to you. It's just a friendly reminder. Don't be mad ok.

ewomack: The only thing you can win is the famous "noprize", suitable for framing and hanging on your wall. [crazy]

Edit: Grey_girl, I guess I am partly to blame. I guess along with posting the list every now and again, I should also repost the rules:
quote:
Start with a 4 letter word.
Change any ONE letter each time to make a new word, e.g. team changes to seam.
You can't mix the letters up, e.g. team changed to meal is not allowed.

1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.
2. No repeated words.
3. No curse words.
4. Must be a legitimate English word.
5. No words unfit for Scrabble (i.e. proper names etc.)
6. The person that comes up with a word that no one can change into another word is the winner.

It's a good idea, because not everyone is going to go back to page one, especially if you load the thread from the "15 most recent posts" link.

So I won't post until tomorrow. Promise.

Sorry mine has been used: 7th column 3rd row. Sine is still the last word.

Edit: Here is a helpful hint. Use the find feature in your browser to check to see if a word is in the list. That's why I try to post the whole list every page; it helps to keep track of what words have already been used without having to go back and look at every page.

Trouble with trying to remember if you posted less that 24hr ago is that the posting times are West Coast Canada.

lust

[Edit]Arrgh, I just saw that I posted 3hrs too early, so the word is still rust.
