Word rot game

Postby Æxylis » 2009-11-20, 17:16

Hello
The point of this game is to take a word and break it down in one of two ways:
Split - taking a word and cutting it into smaller whole words
Rot - taking a word and removing letters from it to make a smaller word

You continue either of these two procedures until a word has been completely deteriorated
then you pass on a word for the next player :D
You can use words in any language in your deterioration sequences, but you must specify which language the word is in :D

Herés an example:
Consternation -’ stern -’ ten
-’ station -’ ton -’ on
-’ nation -’ tin -’ in
-’ cost
-’ [flag]fr[/flag]cote

here's the first word for the next player:

Just one language at a time, or several? Should we just do it once, or show different possibilities?

- sel (seal)
- le (to laugh, shelter from wind)

- ed (oath)

Next word: apartment
