Game Rules

An open poetry game to bring in the new year!
Tell your friends, feel free to join!

Game Rules:

Many of you played this game before earlier in the summer. The rules haven't  changed much, but please brush up before posting.

To any newcomers, it is actually fairly simple, but if you have questions, feel free to message me. 

The first player begins by posting a poem that describes (by use of imagery, metaphor, or other literary device) a noun, without saying what it is. 

Readers may then enter their guesses into the comment section below.
The author may reveal the subject of their poem in the comments at their discretion.

 A second player then chooses a word from the poem as inspiration, and the title of their poem, but describe something else. (For example, if your title is Yellow, your poem should NOT be about Yellow, but something else somehow connected. Like a dress, a rose, the feeling of happiness. Whatever.) The title should provide a clue, but not expose the subject. 

Readers again may post their guesses, and add their own poems.

Multiple players may add to the same poem. To eliminate confusion, please tell who your "parent poem" is at the beginning of the page.

*THERE WILL BE NO EXPLICIT, OR SEXUAL CONTENT ALLOWED*. The game moderator (SortaSixteen) reserves the right to delete a poem that is offensive.

Ready to play? My poem on the next page starts the game! Let's go!
