    Elephant is a sheep game where the start of the next word must begin with the end letter of the word before.

    c0635ff0000f897ecef86bcd2aa5cd49.jpg

    Like a line of elephants walking along holding each other, trunk to tail. The Elephants get upset if their tails are not being held.

    e.g.

    elephanT
    TigeR
    RhinO
    OctopuS
    Seal


    Simple enough, but it can end up being a total train wreck. Once you step off the path, getting back on again can be a mind****.... not that there is any set path :)

    Connect the tails for these set of questions :)


    *Thanks to Rikand for the intro ;) *


    1. A European country
    2. A breed of cattle
    3. An English Premier League team
    4. A TV show
    5. A Covid-19 Vaccine
    6. A snooker ball colour
    7. A 90s song
    8. A capital city
    9. A Stephen King novel
    10. A game played on Forum Games



    Sign Ups open till the 14th May anyways, aiming to run the reveal that weekend sometime depending on other games in the forum.....

    That's too bloody cute :)
    So how does one "win" this game? :D

    To thine own self be true

    Sheep is a game where you try to pick the most popular answer for a question, so that still applies here.

    Difference is in Elephant your answer to each question has to start with the last letter of your previous answer :D

    This wikipedia page helped. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_vaccine




  • Hurray!!

    I loved the last one of these - even though it completely melted my head!

    Will get straight on it!!

  • Great, now I have to review different cattle breeds. I know zero




  • The winning entry has just been submitted! :D




  • This is really tough...

    I likes it :D

    I like to think of it as an educational question :pac:

    Yup sheep are unlikely unless (even if) many end up in the same tunnel vision path :D

    Haha, farm stuff I'd somewhat forgotten now remembered :p

    Google is great :pac:




  • Jesus I've just had to give up on my third list trying to make this poxy thing work. Necro is off the christmas card list with their stupid totally fun game ideas. Honestly, 200 recognised breeds of cow in a list from the the British Cattle Tracing System and not one of them ends in a letter I need it to end with.




  • :D

    Who knew cattle would be the cause of my excommunication from Forum Games

    OK, I have a chain! :)

    There's a couple of answers that are really shoehorned in though, so I'm not entering yet and will come back to it later to see if I can improve it




  • Google is allowed right?

    Sure is :D




  • I've entered.
    I was just about to send my list when it struck me that my 90s song was released in the 80s :mad: grrrr!




  • In

  • awwh wow, he/shes such a cutie




  • I missed a question and had to re-do it. :mad: Oh these heffalumps can be infuriating.
    There is a question where as far as I can see you can only give one correct answer, that is what nobbled me for ages.

    Necs do you come up with your own set of answers while you are working out the questions? It'd be interesting to see what you choose afterwards if so.

    There's no answers or question numbers in the spoilers below just some comment on the bold.
    Yeah, without saying too much I suspect I had the same problem where it appeared to me that two questions had to be specific answers/combination to be a valid tail to trunk Unless I've really scuffed it :0

    Sometimes, not always. Have I done it here...? Who knows :D

    Well this is sheep so there are no wrong answers right? :pac:

    I had to use some obscure stuff / versions of things to make it work so I doubt mine will sheep, but I made them all link :D
