Shiritori 〜2〜

Postby paul_b » Wed 09.27.2006 3:20 am

This thread is for playing the Japanese word game known as shiritori.
We will be playing with the basic rules (as explained in the Wikipedia page on shiritori). However each Japanese word should be accompanied by the
English translation and kana version.

Note that under the basic rules verbs and proper nouns are not allowed.

====
The current word is:


いばら
thorn bush, wild rose

Why did you start a new thread Paul-san? The old thread was about to overtake the !!!Cool Manga!!! thread and was on its way to overtaking Pics thread.

Honestly I hadn't thought about the "biggest thread ranking" (I never pay any attention to that bit of the screen). The two main reasons are 1) So that it's possible to delete old shiritori posts easily without getting rid of current shiritori posts. 2) "Monster threads" like the pics thread take up more than their fair share of screen space in the forum display and are difficult to find things in.

[EDIT] Just for you I deleted some off-topic posts from the Cool Manga thread and now Shiritori is number 2[/EDIT]

Incidentally it is possible that there will be a special Shiritori page of some sort for playing made in the future so threads should only be considered a stop-gap anyway.
