The word extension game

    First poster posts a small word maybe 1 or 2 or 3 letters... Next poster adds to that word to form a new word, and so on...
    So poster 1 - a
    poster 2 - at
    poster 3 - sat
    poster 4 - shat
    poster 5 - shatter

    If a time goes by with no new additions to a word, or if people agree that a word can't be extended any further, a new one can be started... Winner is the "team" with the longest run of additions... So it's in your interest to make it easy for the next person... (and I don't mean form up into teams, it's just a bit of craic)


    You can add to the begining, middle or end but not take away any letters from the previous word.
    No deliberately sabotaging someone else's run! (i.e. deliberately putting words so they can't be extended)
    No "looking up" (except to validate if you have a real word)

    So I suppose I'll start...
