'Wordplay' A Quickie Game.

Post  Atlas on Mon Jun 03, 2013 1:02 am

To see who can score the highest by taking words from the English language (or foreign if in regular use) and making other words. The letters must be consequtive and can be any number of letters within the taken word. The letter 'I' cannot be used singularly.

Example: International - In. Intern. Nation. Tern. - Scores 4.

Extra points (1) can be gained and added if you spot a word missed from a previous players list.

Or do you have something better to do? Wink Very Happy

jeanie. You missed the vital point . The letters must be consecutive - not any combination of the letters. In other words you cannot mix them up to form new words. Have another go.

Well done southernbelle.
