Game 2: As Yet Untitled...
 
Sorry for being so vague about this one, but I haven't a clue what it's called or indeed what the proper rules are. If anyone can fill me in, please bung me a PM on the matter... :oops:

Basically, I write a sentence to start us off. Then the next person to have a go must write another sentence in which the first letter of each word comes from the letters comprising the last word in my sentence. The next person does the same with the word finishing the second sentence and so on. I haven't really explained this very well, have I?

An example.

1. Jesse is a boy's name.

2. Nobody ate my edam.

3. Eric discovered Amner's medallion.

See? Where this example goes horribly wrong is that none of the above are even remotely amusing.

I'll start off with the first line from Catch-22, as I have it on my desk.

1. It was love at first sight.

...Is each sentence supposed to follow logically from the first one?

Sean immediately grasped his tackle.

It might make things more fun, so yes. It could be a story written in very short sentences. Maybe this is how David Peace writes his books?

It was love at first sight.
Sean immediately grasped his tackle.
Trolls always caused knob-lengthening excitement.

Tracy and Claire, kleptomaniacs, looked enraptured.

Ach, do we need to have a quick vote as to whose line we should use?

Or is it first come first served? :wink:

I think anything containing the word knob-lengthening must win by default.

It took me ages to come up with that! Ok, if you're sure. This is where we are:

Eventually Xavier, caressing intently Tracy’s engorged mammaries, elicited nervous titters.

(Whose idea was it to have a word with an X in it, huh?!)

Then immediately the trick-tits exploded round Sean!

Well, mine didn't above, but it doesn't really matter, unless it is obviously cheating!
