Caladont 2.0

Postby winterfate » Jan 24 2008, 23:45

Well, here it is guys! :D

I take no credit for the following rules (except for the subsequent grammatical fixing of them ;)), as they were all written up by DaemianLucifer (if you don't know who he is, PM me or ask me, or for that matter, anyone who's been here since before he got banned, at the Random Thoughts thread...it's quite a lot to talk about...;)).

Anyways, here they are!

Caladont's Rules:

1) You need to create a word that starts with at least the two last letters of the previous word (example hat -> attractive).

2) The order of the letters should not be changed (morning -> ingenious) is ok, but (morning -> ignite) isn't.

3) You must add at least one letter, so (hat -> at) is a no no.

4) You can use more than just the two last letters,and it gives you additional points (example: cape -> apes gives you 3 points, while pea gives you just 2).

5) Proper nouns (nouns that label a specific thing, like Earth, Microsoft, Belgium, etc), and non-english words are not allowed, and neither are abbreviations.

6) A single word cannot be repeated twice in the same round (a word is considered repeated even if you post a plural of it, but the singular form was posted earlier)

7) A word cannot be strongly tied with the previous word (meaning its meaning has to completely differ from all of the previous words meanings) if its used whole (so adding a suffix ly, ing, ed, or anyone like thats inst allowed, turning a verb into a noun, or similar is also not allowed).

8) For each letter of the previous word you use, you get one point. If you use the whole previous word in the new word,you get five extra points (example:mist -> mistaken gives you 9 points, not 4).

9) The round ends when there are no words that can be posted.The one that ends the round gets -5 points (so that users are encouraged to prolong the game)

10) The one with the most points at the end of the round starts the new round. In the case of a tie, the one with the lowest number of words wins.

11) You cannot post two words without at least 4 posts between them.
Rule Changed: May 5, 2008

12) If you misspell the word, you are penalized one point.

13) If someone breaks a rule, he is penalized one point. When five penalties are issued, the round ends.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Rules:

14) You cannot use hyphenated words. (On the grounds that hyphenated words have multiple words, and you can only post one word at a time. :))

15) Any player who is forced to use a word for which he/she is later penalized will receive 0 points (instead of the normal -1) if the word prevents the round from ending.
Note that this still counts as a round penalty.
Also the word must not break rules 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13 or 14.

Rule Created by: Muszka

(Have to give proper credit, of course! ;))

Feel free to PM me with any new suggestions for rules and such.

Well...it's time...LET'S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!!!!

Yet again, thanks to the word onslaught and the every dreaded onslaughts, the game comes to a crashing hault.
And the chickens. Those damn chickens.

@Elvin: Nope...he has to modify off the end of the word, not the beginning. :S

Who wants me to change rule 1 so that you can use the last letter? (instead of needing two or more)

Fair enough.

I guess it's the mechanics of the game that ruin it for me. Oh well.

As to the proposed rule Fate, that would be pointless because the game would never end.

Nice. How about:
Hausekeeper

P.S.: question: in those 5 posts between two words posted by someone don't count the posts that contain no words. Am I right?

perfume

Almost put "perch" but that seemed like it would be hard to continue.

@Ceres: You have to use the ending of a word to make the new word. :)
In perpendicular, you're using the beginning.

@Muszka: You mean housekeeper, right? ;)

Sure thing.

Kalah: 7
Muszka: 5
Last word used: Housekeeper
Kareeah Indaga: 3
Last word used: perfume
