Original instructions:

Quote:
In this game we'll start with a six-letter word. The next post will add a letter to those six letters, mix 'em up and make a new word. The next poster will then remove a letter from the seven-letter word, mix those up, and post a new word. Thus, there will be a six-letter word followed by a seven-letter word followed by a six-letter word, and so forth. Just one word per post.

Example:

Drains
------------
Sardine
------------
Diners
------------
Rescind
------------
Cinder

Sound playable? We'll see, I reckon. ANY words are usable (names of cities/states, names of rivers, people, foreign words, etc --- all will work). Try to mix the letters up, too ~ in other words, if the word above yours is a seven-letter plural? Knocking off the *s* is acceptable, I guess --- but not very creative .
If we get stuck? No problem. We'll just start with a new six-letter word. And, if need be, we can change the letter numbers (maybe go *5,6,5*?) as the game plays, if it proves to be more player-friendly to do so. We'll (as always) work out any bugs as they happen, as we go. Okay?
