Pyraword is a word game played from Mondays 12:01 am to Fridays 11:59 pm funtrivia time (with varying Saturdays)
A "match" begins with a 3-letter word. (This word will be the first 3-letter from the daily headlines at Canada.com*note: 3-letter words will never be used more than once
Players must change one letter, and add one letter, to form a new, valid word.
An example of gameplay can be seen in the title of this page.
A"round" ends when someone posts a word that no one else can expand on, within the span of 24 hours.
Then a new "match" would begin. This is where we may need Saturday to allow a word to pass the 24-hour mark.
New "matches" will always begin Mondays.
* a valid entry is worth 1 point.
* 24-hour words are worth 2 points.
-There are no time-slots. There is no signing up.
-Anyone may play at anytime, but you cannot post twice in a 12 hr period, in the same "round".
Use Onelook.com for validity checks.
NO plurals accepted. Even if they don't end in the letter "S".
NO hyphenated words accepted.
NO short forms accepted.
If someone posts a word that is not valid, they will receive 0 points for that entry.
If someone posts inside of 12 hours from a previous post, they will receive 0 points for the second entry.
It is up to other players to challenge on validity or timeslot conflicts, within 24 hours of the infraction.
These are my second draft RULES. Final edition will be posted this weekend.
edit myself in here to say that I should add a section to include potential weekly/monthly winners......
seems possible to keep a running total..
guess I am still undecided.
Thanks out to Mamaja for the encouraging PM
Any feedback is always welcome.
Anything I missed in the rules?
