this just came to me, the game starts very simply like someone says,
Theres is a ant,
then the next person says
on a hobo
then a third person says
in a train
then the next person says
on a tree
then the next person says
in the earth
dont know why i thought this up... just bored i guess

Moderator Note

Clarifying the intended rules:

Each successive person/statement gives another "location" descriptor (usually starting with "on" or "in", but not necessarily limited to those) until there is no other more specific/general location left to specify (e.g. The Universe)



so lets start...


there is a Apple
Nyrphame Danilaise
on a plate...
L'lee
in a sauce...
Ayli
there is an Apple on a plate in a sauce on the table...

Ayli

It's turned out that way, but I don't think that was the original intent...


edit: I believe the original intent was to specify a *location* for the initial item e.g. "an apple" in baby steps, much like the aforementioned song "hole in the bottom of the sea" but in reverse... kind of.
Ayli
Where the instructions not followed? Did we do something wrong?

I'm guessing that we have to start with "on" and "in", but not sure.
devonette
ah if it had to be on and in alternately, the instructions didn't say so. Do we start over from where it went awry? Start over completely? Or just go on with the game in this condition on condition we continue in the way it was intended?
Ayli
I'd say, we continue as we were going, pending gmz say something about our decision...
gmz1013
okay ranting.gif , lets start over completle and this is how the game goes.
each person works off the person above them, for example if i were to say,
there is an ambea,
the next person would say something like,
in an apple,
then the next person would say something and so one and so forth, and when it gets to the Universe then you start over like,
blah blah universe
then the next person would say something
on a skin cell,
ECT.

i cant get anymore Descirptive with out showing you with my hands and stuff
so lets start (again) and not interupt this time...

there is a cell
Ayli
So you mean, gmz, that there is no connection between 1st person and the 3rd? I'm working only with the wordings provided exactly above my post and nothing further above? I still don't understand confused1.gif

How about you give us a complete example with more than two samples?

Ayli
Ok, so my initial thinking was correct, it has to be either "on" or "in"

So continuing from gmz's entry:

-------------------------------------------------
edit: I don't think we are strictly limited to "in" or "on", but that the entry is to describe a general "location" for the initial item in the string. I updated the original post to include the clarified rules for the game, as I understand it from gmz's posts to help avoid future "derailments of the train"... lmao.gif (Is my update your original intent, gmz? If not, let me know and I will "tweak" it per your request.)
