PYRAWORD
********

Gameplay
********

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.

SCORING
********

* a valid entry is worth 1 point.
* 24-hour words are worth 2 points.

RULES
********

-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.

CHALLENGES
********

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?
typos?
