In this game, you take a single word and expand it into four unique clues. The clues can be anything, so long as they fit under certain rules.

Here are the rules:
  • No word may be repeated from one clue to another, unless they are the following exceptions:
    • "Synonym of.../like..."
    • "Antonym of.../opposite of..."
    • "The root/stem", "The beginning/middle/end..." (when referring to parts of words like "bringing", where "bring" is the root, or compound words like "halftime", where "beginning" refers to "half" and "end" refers to "time")
    • Articles, conjunctions, and prepositions
    • Blanks (three dots, e.g. "... water" can be used to clue in "mineral water", "spring water", etc.)
  • Abbreviations that contain the word to be clued cannot be used - "part of H2O" cannot be used to clue "oxygen", but you can use "above S, in the periodic table"
  • No foreign words - "Deutschland" cannot be used to clue "Germany"; keep clues in English, proper nouns are OK (use judiciously)
  • No trademarks or product names - "Gateway" cannot be used to clue "computer"
  • No spelling out words - "deer, backwards" cannot be used to clue "reed"

Here's how this would work:

Word: three
Clues:
1. after two
2. before four
3. square root of nine
4. second prime number

Word: number
Clues:
1. a performance
2. one, two, or three
3. they are used to count, singular form
4. it can be prime or complex

Note that the next player clues in the word used in the last clue by the previous player. The next player would have to clue "complex" in this example.

Your first word to clue is go. Have at it! :)
