    Glad to see this old thread resurrected, wonder what happened to 'zuzus petals'!..
    I personally hope and pray that her departure from the Forum was not due to health problems..

    Do we just add one word each? Can we add obvious words, like table or tables?

    Gosh, it has been so long since I played this one I had almost forgotten the rules. But looking back at the original post the rules are....


    Alrighty, here's a quick review of the rules:

    Words Within Words Game
    The game begins with a word, for example:
    Gardenstew
    each subsequent poster uses letters
    contained in that word to make one new word.

    The letters do not have to be used in the
    same order in which they occur in the original word,
    but no letters may be added.

    Copy and paste the list each time,
    then add your new word to the bottom of the list,
    so that by the end, it would look like this:

    Gardenstew

    1. ardent
    2. wasted
    3. wardens
    4. garden
    5. teens
    6. wards
    7. wagers
    8. swear
    9. nested
    10.needs

    Each player adds one word at a time, but can add to the list
    again, after another player takes a turn.

    The poster who adds the 10th word would then select
    and post a new word to begin the next round.
