The Game of Doublets (formerly the "Revised New Game")


#1

Continuing the discussion from New Game:

We ran into a number of stumbles with our previous attempt. So I’m going suggest a reframing of the game, defining rules, defining winning and losing and kicking it off.

Rules of the game

Change the previous word by adding, changing or deleting one letter
If two members “tie” with a new word at the “same time”, we take the word from the first post to appear on the topic
You cannot post two new words in a row, you must give other players a chance
Words must be in the Official Scrabble Dictionary
Words previously used since the last winning word may not be used again.

You “win” the game if you post a new word in which our community cannot find a new word within a day, the “winner” get’s to start a new game with a new word
Any player may declare a “win” when a day has passed without a legal play
Your win can get “erased” if you attempt to start a new game with a word that has no new words

Winners with their winning words will be posted here.
