Word Association Game

Postby cooran » Fri Apr 17, 2009 9:24 am

Hello all,

While I recharge my batteries for another round of the Limerick Game, I wondered if anyone would like to play the Word Association Game. It is simple ... It starts with one word, and someone posts a word that it is associated with, and then the next person posts a word associated with the second word and so on and on ....

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
