How many words can you make out of another?

    The rules are simple: (1) fashion as many words as possible (all English and in the dictionary) from the ONE word the previous poster provided, then (2) leave another random word for the next player to dissect.

    ....................

    - It’s understandable if you can’t come up with all the possible word combinations, just play as many as you likely see or wish to post - it's about fun not mental drudgery.

    - As always, be considerate when choosing a multi-syllable word for the next player - if it’s something you wouldn’t want to play, don’t leave it for another.

    - Limiting long words for ease of play is thoughtful; posting lengthy words such as antidisestablishmentarianism or supercalifragilisticexpialidocious reflects poorly on you alone, and is neither clever nor kind.
