If you've got any ideas for games that I haven't thought of yet, please let me know here!

How about an ongoing alliterative story or conversation? Each person posts a sentence (or fragment) that is mostly alliterative, then nominates the next letter ... for example:

"Busily biting beef, Bertie burped ..." next letter = G
"Goodness, gracious, Garth groaned!" next letter = ...and so on ...

Alliteration haikus! Example:

Tommy tries to take
Tyler's terra-cotta tint.
Ty terminates Tom.

That's a good idea; but I'm not sure whether it would be better here or on the Haiku Challenge page. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Well, you could make the Haiku Challenge page a subpage of the Word Gymnastics page (just link to it from here), and then put the alliteration haiku on the Haiku Challenge page. I think the Haiku Challenge qualifies as a subsection of the Word Gymnastics. That's what I think, anyway. smiley - tongueout

How about word association?
For example

Chop
Wood

etc.

How about "The Alphabet Story", One person starts, passing on to whoever dares come next. The story starts with a word beginning with A, the next word beginning with B ... and so on until it comes to a graceful close anywhere in the alphabet.

For example, a story might start:

"A beautiful china doll, entertaining friends, grew hazy if ........."
