View Full Version : A fun game you'll like to play (I hope)

I've played this game many times with my cousins and thought it might be fun to try in here. We call it "Tail to Head."
First you choose a theme, say "Animals."
Next, one person says a word, like "Frog" and then the next person has to say a word that begins with the last letter of the previous word, which in this case is G, so they might say "Goat." The next person then has T, so "Turtle" which might lead the next person to "Eel" and so on. Got the idea?

I think it would be neat to see how long we can keep this going. Also, let's see how far we can get without having to repeat a previously used word, but repeats will be legal if necesary, just to keep the game going.

Since this is Crystals and Herbs, the words we will use have to either be a Crystal or an Herb.

For example:
Person 1 says: ThymE
Person 2 says: EmeralD
Person 3 says: DiamonD
Person 4 says: DandelioN
and so on.

And since so many minerals seem to end in E, I have decided to add the rule that if the last letter(s) of the previous word is/are vowel(s), you have permission to use the consonants that proceed them instead, if you want.

For example:
SodaliTE can lead to either Emerald or Topaz
ChrysocolLA can lead to Amethyst or Lapis Lazuli
EchinaCEA can lead to Amber, Elder, or Coconut

Also folknames and scientific names are allowed as well as common names. Using the scientific name or folk name of an already used common name will not be counted as repeating, and vice versa.

For example:
The folk names of Turquoise: Fayruz, Turkey Stone, Turkish Stone, Thyites, Venus Stone, and Horseman's Talisman can all be used.
Or
The folk names of Lily of the Valley: Convallaria, Jacob's Ladder, Ladder to Heaven, Lily Constancy, Male Lily, May Lily, and Our Lady's Tears are all acceptable as well as the scientific name Convallaria magalis.

Just include the common name with your folkname or scientific name so we know what you are talking about, ok?

To start, I'll begin with GolD

Have fun,
BlueManticore

P.S. Check Page 28 for an updated listed by Hedgecub of words already used.

Wow Hedgecub, very nice! Thanks :)

Looking at this list, with all its Ts, from the many minerals that end in -ite, I have decided to add another rule that I hope will help broaden things.

Folknames and scientific names are allowed as well as common names. Using the scientific name or folk name of an already used common name will not be counted as repeating.

For example:
The folk names of Turquoise: Fayruz, Turkey Stone, Turkish Stone, Thyites, Venus Stone, and Horseman's Talisman can all be used.
Or
The folk names of Lily of the Valley: Convallaria, Jacob's Ladder, Ladder to Heaven, Lily Constancy, Male Lily, May Lily, and Our Lady's Tears are all acceptable as well as the scientific name Convallaria magalis.

Just include the common name with your folkname or scientific name so we know what you are talking about, ok? ;)

Now, to continue the game:

According to the Encyclopaedia of the Orient,
-Hashish is made from a resin secreted by flowering tops of female plants. The resin is dried, and collected up as lumps. If it is fresh it is green, but it soon becomes brown. The colour is however of little importance to its quality.

I hope this one's alright; it's not a herb but the name of a herbal remedy in traditional Chinese medicine. Apparently it's used to treat diabetes, but illegally contains a prescription-only drug that can lower blood sugar levels to coma or death inducing levels if used improperly.

Keep up the good work, Hedgecub. It's a big help.

TemperanceAngel, "since so many minerals seem to end in E, I have decided to add the rule that if the last letter(s) of the previous word is/are vowel(s) (A, E, I, O, U, AND Y), you have permission to use the consonants that proceed them instead, if you want.

For example:
SodaliTE can lead to either Emerald or Topaz
ChrysocolLA can lead to Amethyst or Lapis Lazuli
EchinaCEA can lead to Amber, Elder, or Coconut"

For all the rules, check back at the very beginning, Message 1.

Now, on with the game.
