The idea . Start with a three letter word. ie. ART. next person must make a full
new word by adding as many letters as he/she wants. ARTIST. Next person.
ARTISTIC. Next ARTISTICALLY etc. If the next person cant make the word any
longer then take either one of the last two letters of the last word and start
again. ie. L or Y and suggest a three letter word. The next person adds to it and
so on.

See how many words can be made before the sequence breaks down. It might
work. Is it worth a try? Start with IMP

Sorry Jed but you either had to lengthen the last word Impetuously
or start a new sequence with L or Y.

I can see a lot of snags but it has the basis of a good game. Any ideas to
improve it from anyone?

I think there is a game like this, but you're only allowed to add up to three letters to the word before...

You wouldn't really be able to make any words in that case though.
Perhaps if you could add one or more letters in front, or at the back.
Say Row....Arrow...Arrows..Harrows. If stuck the next player can put up
any three letter word to start again. That was a run of four.

It would be a team game the object being to see the longest run made.

Not easy to even get to six but it might be fun to try.

I add letters to make Style. The next person must make another word adding letters to the front or end of Style.

i think this would be better played with scrabble type rules,btw can you play scrabble on bc,not competitive because i think it would be easy to cheat looking at some of the sites on the game i cannot believe that people know the amount of words on the hi score boards.
