"AlphaBet Food Court" Game - Round 96! (Rules in first post)
« on: August 24, 2007, 10:16:02 am »
In honor of the Open House, we have created a new ABCs game for your enjoyment:

"AlphaBet Food Court" Game


Game Rules:

1.  The game is played in rounds.  We run through the alphabet, starting with the letter "A" and ending with "Z".  Then a new round begins.
2.  [Revised] Answers must be the name of a specific food, drink, or edible item, a food ingredient (for example, "X" is lemon eXtract), or a food or beverage category (for example, "S" is spices) whose spelling starts with the letter being played.  Brand names are acceptable provided they refer to something specific.  In other words, "K" is Knox gelatin but "K" is NOT Knox.  (Knox what?)  On the other hand, "P" is Pepsi is acceptable because a Pepsi is something specific (a soft drink) while a Knox is not.
3.  Answers are posted in the subject line using this format:
"A" is apple
4.  In the text body, you must include an image of your answer.  No text is required.
5.  [Revised]  Answers may NOT repeat.  A separate answer list is being compiled for this purpose.  Please consult the answer list before posting.  Because so many of these words have a variety of spelliings, let's not concern ourselves with capitalization or hyphenation or whether an answer is singular or plural.  In other words:  
Melba toast = melba toast
tuna noodle casserole = tuna-noodle casserole
orange = oranges
M&M = M&Ms = M&M's= m&m's
If you notice that a player has posted a previously played answer, please send a PM to that player, copying the mods.
6.  Answers may consist of more than one word; for example, "H" is hot fudge sundae.  Please note, "F" is NOT hot fudge sundae.  The first word after the "is" must start with the same letter is the letter being played:  "H" is hot fudge sundae
7.  [Revised]  After posting an answer, please skip one turn (revised from two turns).
8.  [Revised]  After a "Z" is played, a new round is announced before the "A" is played.  The round announcement may include a suggested theme for the round.  The posting of the round announcement does not count as a turn.
9.  [New]  Due to the scarcity of "X" words, some flexibility will be allowed with "X" answers.
          a)  Names or brand names of anything edible or potable with an "X" anywhere in their spelling (not necessarily in the first word) are considered acceptable answers for "X";  for example:
"X" is miXed nuts
"X" is trail miX
         b)  A played "X" answer may also be used as a valid answer for whatever its first word's first letter happens to be.  For example, someone can play "X" is trail miX and someone else can play "T" is trail mix without a conflict (and vice versa).  Answers containing an "X" in their spelling are the only exception to the "answers may not repeat" rule.
10. "Placeholding" is allowed to give a player time to find an image, but the player should identify the word(s) they plan on playing and state the answer somewhere in the post, ideally in the subject line. This will avoid confusion and ensure that other players know exactly which letter the placeholding player intends to play.
11. Players must make their own posts.  Players cannot post answers for another player.
12. If a letter is inadvertently skipped, any player may post the missing letter.  This will not count as a turn.
13. The moderators of the game reserve the right to add rules and revise rules as the game evolves.

Gamely,

Sandy and Fran
