New "IS TO" game a variation on the ongoing word association game, simple enough,

could be little testing though, follow along in reply using a two line sentence see the two examples.

Rules:  Double posting of the *same word* on the *same page* is *not allowed*  all gamers are permitted to carry out punishments as necessary..smiley

Roxy--I'm not sure I get it. If these are analogies (as used on some exams), it should go something like:

Cat is to milk (A cat likes milk) as...

Dog is to kibble (dog likes kibble..or in my dog's case: as dog is to its own poop)

----------------------------------
The next might continue:

Dog is to kibble as ... (dog eats kibble)

Woodpecker is to beetle (woodpecker eats beetle)
----------------

OR, using the last word in the analogy:

Beetle is to BMW:: Miracle Whip is to mayonnaise

---------------- then...

mayonnaise is to mustard:: sugar is to spice

---------------

spice is to girl:: beastie is to Boy

Well yes Cornflake, thanks your input/clarity for us gamers, let’s see if it picks up as I first described, or more as similarity or comparability as you say? ..Doesn’t really matter {I think}….as long as a post includes a two word sentence? in reply, and continues onwards..Let’s see if there is any interest in this stimulating game?..I hope so...

Scaggs7  yes!  That is correct you  follow play off  from ‘play’ my last word in the sentence,as you have done.

 {Eric may I say if this game is played as your post.. could become difficult ?..so to keep it easier shall we continue as Scaggs7 post..?..Similar to ..“ Who Gets The First Word {game} ?.}

I will continue then from “parents”..last word in Scagg7 sentence.....
